  • I do if Im cleaning wih certain chemicals b/c I have learned the hard way that my hands get super messed up if I dont protect them

  • No. For one, I'm allergic to latex. But if it's my house, I'm not overly worried about the germs, because I live with them every day. I can wash my hands when I'm finished with a given task.

  • Also, I don't use harsh chemicals. We went green awhile back, so I don't worry too much about the stuff being overly harsh. If something IS harsh, we have non-sterile exam gloves.

  • no, I can't stand to do that because I can't feel if the surfaces are really clean when my hands are in gloves. I use home made safe cleaners so I don't have to worry about chemicals.

  • Nope not for dishes or cleaning. I tried with bleach, but even that was kinda annoying. The only time I use rubber gloves is when I'm washing BM off my kid's training underwear.

  • Nope, I let my hands take the harsh stuff straight on.

  • Only for certain jobs or if I've just had a manicure.

  • No, the only time I will use rubber gloves is when I am scrubbing my floors and that is only when I have the gloves in the house.

  • I do!!! I use what ever I have, usually my pink up to the elbow rubber gloves. The truth is it's because I despise shriveled hands. Too funny, but so true.
