do you wear rubber gloves when washing dishes? i don't, actually. i find them inconvenient. i know i should use them, basically to protect my hands from harsh chemicals. but then, well they are cumbersome. what about you? do you use rubber gloves or you have a dishwashing machine?

Sometimes when I am doing the laundry. Though its not comfortable, I have no choice its because my hands are too sensitive with detergents. My hands chopped and it hurts. Next day, I cant wash hands using soap because of teh wounds causes by chops. But if I am only washing dishes, I dont use that. :)

No I dont I cant work if I have rubber gloves I feel like I am goint to brake everything. I know how bad working without them is for my hands but i cant get used to them at all. I wear gloves only when I am cleaning the toilet (as I use domestos) and the bathroom, and if I am scrubing something and cleaning the oven. I dont have a dishwasher and dont intend to get one any time soon.

I've never used rubber gloves while washing the dishes. My mother nevr did so when i moved into my own place i dodn't even think to purchase a pair. I don't like the way they feel on my hands. I never have an issues with dry or irritated skin from my washing detergent so i don't see the need in me personally using them.

I don’t wear rubber gloves when washing dishes. I usually use a brush with longer handle to wash the dishes with dilute detergence. I try my best not to touch the liquid which could make the skin of my hands too dry. After rinse away the detergents with water I then wash with my hands. I only wear rubber gloves while doing gardening.

i wash it dishes and stuff with my bare hands. i love the sudsy feel of dishwashing soap. when i have time, i play and make bubbles. and just have fun out of a simple chore. though lately, i usually dont wash dishes since my schedule is pretty tight but before, i was roped in to help in the household chores...
