How To Mend Rubber Gloves?

Q: I always try to fix things before replacing them with something new. I've been trying to find out how I can repair my rubber gloves for a day or so now, and I haven't come up with any ideas. One of the gloves I wear when washing dishes has two tiny pin holes that let water in...

...I'd just wash dishes with bare hands, but then my skin gets so dry that it bleeds, so that is not a solution. Any ideas for mending rubber gloves?

Editor: First of all, kudos on your efforts to fix rather than replace! This is a tough one. We keep thinking of that liquid Band-Aid product .. or perhaps some sort of glue. But, in that case (unless you had those products on hand) you would still be buying something new, so why not just replace the gloves?

Anyone else have any other suggestions?
