I don't wear gloves when i was my dishes, clothes, and do bath room cleaning. i was not in the habit. first the reason is the gloves are hot to the feeling. and also my hands smell awful after wearing those gloves. but it is really advisable to wear gloves like when we are doing gardening. it will protein our hands and will protect it from drying a lot. and so though i hate it i my wear it from now on. cause i have watched a soap on tv, and one character was wearing a gloves while washing dishes, i thought why don't i wear gloves too. maybe it will solve my problem with dry hands and i hope that my hands will be soft soon.

I also don't wear gloves( I know I am a male but I have to do household jobs as I am not married and I live away from my hometown) when I do wash my clothes, wash dishes or cook food but yes, I used gloves when I have to clean my kitchen and use to collect garbage to throw out of my house to the public dustbin outside my house! The reason being is that I don't want to touch those dirty materials!

i think males should wear gloves. in the workplace, in some line of work they usually require their male staff to wear gloves always. so what makes it different if we are just working at home.

some men are better in taking care of their skin than women. and so men who take care of their skin well are in now too. they are quite cool .

I wear gloves when I"m washing dishes because I have sensitive skin and the dish washing liquid irritates my hands. Worst was when I used to live with my grandmother since it was her philosophy that bleach must be in everything that has to do with cleaning. I guess some of that carried over with me because if my dishes are really greasy then I add some bleach to the water. But yea, I definitly agree about the smell and it makes my hands feel dry too after wards.

yeah. i hate greasy dish washes and i learned how to make sure the dishes are free of grease before i dry them. cause before i just clean and wash and still the dishes were greasy and i was taught how to do it right.

I don't wear gloves while washing the dishes, washing the clothes or cleaning the bathroom it is uncomfortable and I can't grip the things tightly if I wear it. I'm only used gloves once when I'm still working in the car manufacturing company to protect our hands in the grease and oils of car parts we need to wear it. After I removed my gloves my hands are very sweaty and it is stinks I don't want the idea of wearing gloves anymore because of it.

i think it is better to clean the inside of the gloves before and after using it and then let it dry inside out so it will not smell bad. yes it is really hoe to the feeling. so better use it fast so you won't feel so hot.

Depends on what kind of work or cleaning I am doing, but i do wear gloves sometimes..I don't like to ruin my nails or dry out my skin or have my hands smelling like bleach.

I never wore gloves for the same reasons, but I wish I had. Some of the chemicals that are in our cleaners are VERY bad for our skin. I now use cleaners with natural ingredients and don't have to worry about that any more!

yeah you got it right those chemicals are harmful to our skin and so it is really wise to make it a practice to wear gloves no matter how uncomfortable they are in our hands.

I don't wear gloves, we don't even have one in the house. I only wash the dishes with hand and luckily, the soap doesn't irritate my skin. I choose the one with Aloe Vera in it so I guess it does work. The bleach and clothes detergent are pretty strong but I don't touch them at all. Apart from that, I have no reason to use gloves. I mean, I don't even do the gardening, my mom did.

I don't familiar to wear gloves when I wash the dishes, clothes, and mop the table and mop the floor etc things. It's good to wear the gloves in winter, because lower temperature will let you fetch a cold or let you feel cold when you wash the clothes use the cold water, so if you wear the gloves, otherside, it can avoid your hands to get a kibe, so why not to wear the gloves? I will wear it in the winter.

Hey, Yea I actually wear gloves when I need to wash the dishes, because I have also read that you can't really expose your skin to the dish washing liquids and stuff like that, because it damages your skin, so I have to wear gloves. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!
