I remember snodgrass mentioned some good gloves for finishing a while ago but I can't find the post, this time I'll bookmark it.

can anyone recommend some decent throwaway type gloves?

I use black vinyl disposable gloves, from most anywhere. make sure you get a LOOSE size, and you can reuse them a couple of times to save costs.
But I bought a bulk quantity from ebay and they were rubbish, most split as I tried to put my hand in, so avoid any super cheap quantity purchases.
I buy boxes of a 100 and apart from when using shellac (the meths melts the fingers together) I can get two or even three uses from a single pair making them very economical.

I believe that they were these. I made a note to get some when my box runs out. They are available cheaper elsewhere but Toolstation is free postage.

A guide of the kinds of glove to use is better than asking most of us that have no expertise. There is no one type fits all jobs glove just like there is no universal cartridge for respirators. Disposable gloves also come in different thicknesses that affect the durability.

What solvents you need them to withstand?

If it's just meths and white spirit then vinyl will do you and you can pick those up anywhere. Even a pound shop might have some, that's where I got my last box of 100 (Bettina). I can get around four or five wears out of each pair when used for applying wiping varnish or similar.

Nitrile is almost always given as the bee's knees (as above) and they may be, but in case you think vinyl's just not up to it see post #1267192 from mrpercysnodgrass in a previous thread: gloves-t115776.htm

An old thread but a test of the gloves. We picked a couple of pounds of blackberries tonight before having a picnic. I wore a pair of these to keep my hands clean, and despite being in amongst the thorns, no tears at all. Top marks.

The cheap blue ones have torn putting them on in the past.

Euro car parts have a good selection of nitrile gloves and sizes plus they're always having %off codes
I got some of the blue ones, no idea what make and they are quite tuff

I don't use them often, but I've recently finished a box I've had for donkeys' years. I forget the brand, which is a pity, because I've bought a box from Toolstation and they are not a patch on the old ones. My fingers go through them just putting them on. I'm seriously tempted to take them back. Never again, and generally I like Toolstation. But not for these.

Black mamba from toolstation, dearer but thicker than the cheaper nitrile gloves. Recommended.
