When it comes to Marigold gloves, understandably cleaning springs to mind (as does spring cleaning too!). But what if we told you there was actually loads of handy ways you can use your Marigolds beyond cleaning that you probably didn’t know about?!
We’ve pulled together a list of some of our favourite uses, and don’t be afraid to explore further because this is just the start!
Pet Hair Havoc
If you have a furry friend of any kind, you know firsthand just how easily their hair gets everywhere. Some have it worse than others, especially those with a black sofa and a German Shepherd! But did you know Marigolds are great for removing pet hair? Simply put them on and wipe along your furniture to remove.
Opening Pickle Jars with ease
Thanks to the friction and three layers of rubber, if you’re struggling to open a jar, put on your Marigolds and give it another go – you’ll feel like Superwomen/man!
Keep those nails protected
Just had a manicure? No problem. Thanks to the unique triple layering on the classic Marigold gloves, they provide the ideal protection for those who want / need to protect their nails.
Have some fun
Rainy day, no games left to play? Turn your Marigolds into creatures! Think spiders, dinosaurs or even a princess – let the kids (and your) imaginations run wild.
Dye your hair not your hands
Anyone who’s ever dyed their hair will understand what we mean when we say it gets very very messy. And even once you’ve washed it all out of your hair and cleaned the bathroom – you’ve still got your hands to clean. Wear a pair of Marigolds to keep your hands protected and save yourself a job afterwards. Try our disposable gloves for extra sensitivity – you won’t even notice you’ve got them on.
Extra strength rubber bands
In need of a super strong band? Marigolds are your friend. Cut the gloves up into strips and, wallah, you have an extra-strong elastic band.
Broken glass protection
For extra protection when dealing with smashed or sharp glass and metal items, wear your Marigolds to avoid cuts and scrapes. Remember, you still need to be careful but they can really help to provide some added protection.
Those damned thorns
Whether it’s roses in the kitchen or holly in the garden, if you’re cutting or rearranging plants with thorns, wear your Marigolds for extra protection. If you’re going to be tackling them in the garden all day, try our Extra Heavy Duty Gardening Gloves with double layered latex for extra protection.
Getting handsy with your food
Mixing a cake, making meatballs or preparing pastry for a pie? If you don’t like having sticky hands or getting cake mixture in your nails, always remember to wear your Multi-Purpose Disposable Gloves.
Grip not slip
Marigold gloves come with excellent grip that can be handy for tasks beyond cleaning. If you’re a regular sewer, try wearing a Marigold glove for better needle grip. Or if you have any ornaments that might be a little slippy underneath, cut up a glove and place it under the object to keep it still.
Summer holidays can seem never ending sometimes. Small chores you’d normally keep on top of whilst the kids are at school unfortunately get pushed aside as, let’s face it, entertaining children is a full time job and then some!
But you don’t have to struggle alone – why not turn your problem into a solution by enlisting your kids to help with the cleaning?
Follow our top tips and you’ll have the kids helping in no time without them even realising!
