These gloves are an essential accessory to have when scanning and handling your priceless negatives and slides. They truly do keep dust and skin oils down and help you get a better scan. Digital dust removal is only so effective, so it is always a good idea to keep the film as clean as possible. That way, you spend less time removing dust in your editing program and more time creatively editing your images. Ideally, use these gloves with an antistatic cloth.

I bought these gloves specifically to use for handling negatives, and I was very disappointed. They are not even remotely "lintless." I tried washing a pair, twice even, and they're still covered in lint. Not to mention, I'm a woman and have slender hands, so these gloves really don't even fit my hands that well, either. If you're thinking about buying these, don't.

Comments about General Brand Lintless Cotton White Gloves (12 Pair):

I use these to help keep my photo/scanner as free from marks and lint as possible. They do limit smudges and lint but they are small in size and difficult to out on.

              For the price, 12 pairs is pretty good. Fitting is not great, but OK. Lintless, they are not. Since this is the reason I bought them, I am disappointed.

                Bought the pack for a photo class Im taking, need to handle the negatives with care, need it for other photo classes as well. Ive used it a few times now and I havent had any problems with it. I have very tiny hands like a little kid but there seems to be plenty of room for larger hands. No problems with them so far.

                      These are a bit small, they will stretch onto my fingers but only about 3/4 of the way down my hand. I don't have large hands. They were cheap and I can still use them for the intended pupose (handling and matting large prints).

                          WE USE THE GLOVES WHEN WORKING WITH FILM AND PRINTING. WE LIKE THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE LIGHT AND DISPOSABLE. SINCE THEY ARE DISPOSABLE, WE WOULD PROBABLY BUY A LARGER QUANTITY NEXT TIME SINCE THERE ARE ONLY 12 IN THE BOX WE PURCHASED.

                              they are very thin, and do not fit very well.once you get them on it is hope you can keep them on.

                                  These gloves were made in India for hands the size of children and not suitable for regular adult sized hands in America. I could barely put them on. It would cost more in postage to return them than what I paid for them so I "ate the bullet".

                                                These gloves are great for handling those expensive print papers. Yoiu won't get your body oils on the paper which will affect your pring quality.

                                                    thin, loose and overly stretchy, not the greatest gloves.

                                                    lower price, but quality is lower. an economical buy.

                                                        These gloves are too small for my large women's hands and the fabric is very cheap, not so easy to hold a print with these, not recommended.

                                                            I got these mainly for the reasonable price and the quantity you get.
                                                            However, they don't fit your hand extremely well. Almost feel "irregular".
                                                            Anyway, they do the trick. They keep my fingers off the prints as I cut. So overall they do they job...I just have to readjust them on my hand at times.
