Does anyone else use dish gloves and absolutely just love them?

For the longest time, I thought dish gloves were worthless. Why would anybody bother with them? Every winter, my hands get extremely dry and chapped. They get so dry at times that just making a fist makes my knuckles crack and bleed. Putting lotion on helped a little, but not enough to really stop the problem.

Then I tried dish gloves. What an improvement! I couldn’t believe how much longer it took my hands to get as dry and chapped as they once were. My hands are still dry and I still forget to put lotion on them often enough. My mother-in-law reminds me frequently to keep them moisturized so they’ll look nicer. :O) But just having dry hands vs. having hands so dry they crack and bleed. . . the dish gloves have been wonderful.

Stephen bought me a new pair tonight because the old pair had a hole in it. They didn’t have the large size I asked for, so he bought medium. I’m glad he did; they actually fit better than the larges did (and I thought the larges were the right size). It’s so nice to be able to wash dishes again without worrying how much my hands will hurt when I’m done.

Do you use dish gloves? Do you love them, and use them constantly, use them occasionally, or not at all?

  1. Well, I don’t do the dishes in our house every day(just on occasion) but I HATE having dry hands. I keep a small pump lotion bottle on my beside table(the trader Joe’s stuff) and put some on when I get up in the morning and before I go to bed. I also keep some next to my sink and lather it on after I DO wash dishes or whatnot. Having it accessible made it much easier to remember for me.

  2. I use them in the winter, but especially since I use such hot water to wash all the baby stuff. I have to wear them so I don’t burn my hands. As for your dry hands try some lanolin. (yeah, the same stuff you use the keep other body parts from cracking) My mom’s fingertips split in the winter, she tried it and it works.

  3. I can’t live without them in winter either. and I have been seeing some sewing projects on line to put ruffles on the cuffs and add ribbon and rick rack to them to make them cute. I have debated about doing that though because mine seem to get wholes pretty quickly. but if you want to decorate your pair there are fun tutorials online. Here is a link to a picture of one project… http://i567.photobucket.com/albums/ss117/kimbo848/DSCN1069.jpg

    1. Marla – those are cute! I’d either ruin them right away or get holes in them though. :O( Right now mine barely last longer than a month (for the thicker ones; the multipack ones don’t last nearly that long)…….I can’t imagine dressing them up and then ruining them!

  4. I also find it a necessity to use gloves. My hands will be terribly dry and chapped if I don’t! The only problem is trying to take them off after washing a lot of dishes-they get stuck to me!:o) Usually I try to put powder inside them and that helps a lot.

    1. Isn’t it strange how much more snug the gloves are after washing dishes? It seems like it’d be the other way around. Thanks for the tip!
