New scented gloves are available on the market and can leave your hands smelling of something other than rubber. Brawny has a glove with a vanilla scent. Vileda's Soft and Care Disposable gloves have a light chamomile fragrance.
2. Try latex-free gloves.
Latex free gloves may have less of that rubbery smell you're trying to avoid, and people with skin reactions will appreciate the latex-free properties.
3. Apply lotion.
Apply lotion to your hands prior to washing dishes. Slip the gloves on. When you finish, your hands will be moisturized and not smell like the gloves. This isn't a great idea for gloves lined with cotton or foam, but for unlined gloves it can help reduce the smell.
4. Baking Soda.
Try sprinkling baking soda into your gloves before you put them on. Not only will the powder help the gloves and your hands smell fresh, but they will also help the gloves slip on and off your hands more easily.
