I don't clean with harsh chemicals, but I do find that dishwashing liquid and even soap damage my skin by the end of the day. My skin are always so dry, but I don't like wearing gloves because they often get in the way, and I really don't like it when water gets into them.
Absolutely! And I put moisturiser on before the gloves, so that the heat of the washing water through the gloves can help it sink in really deep.
Never mind the cleaning fluids, just the water alone will damage and age your hands so it is well worth wearing gloves.
I hate gloves as I can't feel what I am doing. Unfortunately I am apt to garden without gloves too. Naughty. I mostly use bi-carb, vinegar or plain soap and microfibre cloths for cleaning but I know I should try to use gloves more when I wash up, especially in winter. They make your hands smell and sweat and I really just don't like them :(
I've never used cloths for washing up, & I've always used HOT water without any cold water. This is ok for me! & I don't burn my hands! As I don't use any chemicals, I don't need rubber cloves. I'm in my late 60's, & my hands aren't looking like 'old' hands yet, (except for a few 'age spots' on the back of my hands.)
