I don't really get dirt on my skin. What do you do that makes your skin dirty?

When I had an office job with a lot of paperwork and not too many dirty dishes, I didn't wear gloves. Now that I'm a stay-at-home dad and with two young kids, I wear gloves almost all the time, including doing the dishes. Usually, I don't spend too much money on gloves because I don't use them every day and they get pretty stinky. I buy gloves at home centers because those are cheaper than the ones sold in grocery stores(https://www.glovesguide.com/). I always feel relieved after I finish the dishes because I know that my gloves have done their job. Washing gloves are very useful, but using them for too long makes my hands sweaty. After washing the dishes, I feel relieved that it's over, but pretty tired because of all the scrubbing. How often, if at all, do you wear gloves to wash the dishes?

No not for the dishes - but I'd wear rubber/washing-up gloves for cleaning things like the toilet

Yep I do. I can’t stand not doing it because there’s some leftovers on the plates that I can’t use my bare hands to clean. My mum has always used her hands though and my grandma and aunts and basically everyone.

My flatmates were shocked to see that I wear washing-up gloves when I’m washing my dishes! :curious: The reason I wear them is to protect my hands from drying out and not wearing them generally irks me.

Do you wear washing-up gloves?
Yes - both because washing-up liquid gives me contact dermatitis now, possibly due to not using gloves all the time in the past. More importantly, gloves help protect my hands from the scalding water we have in our house - it's usually 73°C by choice, so not something you want to be dipping a naked hand into. I do put some cold in it!

I wear them for cleaning the bathroom because it's gross to touch, I don't usually wear them for washing up though. I probably should because my hands get so dry and cracked but I'd need another pair.

Yes. But I do several days' worth of washing up in one go so it takes a while. When I'm just washing one cup, I don't bother.

Mild but effective at removing tannin after bruin a pot. The polar opposite of Tesco's. I need to wear gloves much more as my hands get very dry now!
