Tips & Tricks: Looking After Yourself While You Look After Your Home

Model Kelly Brook recently revealed that she ended up with hands that looked like an old lady after she finished her spring-cleaning. “I’ve just done some spring-cleaning and my hands feel all grainy, like old lady hands,” the Daily Star quoted her as saying.

It’s that time of year again, and it’s a chore that has to be tackled. But before you do so – you may want to protect your hands from becoming rough and nails from chipping.

Rubber gloves that have long cuffs you can fold up to catch any dripping water. If you desire to be fashionable while you clean, there are also cute designer rubber gloves that can fit any style.

Another good way to safeguard your hands from dehydration is by using a detergent that is specially formulated not to strip moisture from your skin. Choose a liquid detergent like Dawn Plus Hand Renewal, which, in a GHRI test it was found to clean dishes well and not dry out our testers’ hands.

You might also want to try Scotch-Brite’s Ultra NailSaver Sponge. Its new design fits to the contours of your hands providing an inner groove to protect fingers from water and detergent. Similar to a typical Scotch-Brite sponge, it has an absorbent side for wiping and scrubbing side for scouring.
