We will admit – cleaning gloves are not the most fashionable things to wear. But you’ll definitely find them worth wearing after reading this!
#1: They can prevent you from getting sick
Think of all the bacteria you will get in contact with while you’re cleaning. Your bathroom, toilet and kitchen sink are full of Salmonella and E. Coli bacteria. Also, did you realize how dirty your dishcloth and sponges are? Well, they are the dirtiest things in your house. Even if you are not wearing gloves and washing your hands after you have done the cleaning, it will not help to kill the bacteria. So do not put yourself at any risk and just wear the gloves while cleaning. They will protect you against several bacteria, so that means you have a less chance of getting sick!
#2: Gloves protect against chemical burns
Don’t ever expose your skin to any chemicals like vinegar, ammonia or bleach! These chemicals will cause your skin’s oil barrier to remove. This can at its worst cause chemical burns. To prevent this from happening to you we recommend you to wear gloves as a defence.
#3: Gloves will keep your skin from being exposed to hot water
Getting dry, rough and grimy hands from washing the dishes does not necessarily have to happen when you are wearing gloves.
What do you think that exact same hot water you use to melt all the dirt off your dishes does to your skin? Right, nothing good.
Dermatologists are warning people that hot water can cause those oils that keep your skin soft and supple to strip off.
Wearing dish gloves while washing your dishes in hot water will keep your hands protected. Also, you will be able to wash your dishes in much hotter water than your hands could ever handle when they are not wearing gloves, which will make the process go way faster!
