Around the age of 22 I started getting eczema on my hands. It started out as a little patch on each hand and then quickly consumed the tops of my hands. No matter how much lotion I put on it still remains dry and itchy – I resist itching since I can get cracks and bleeding.. I am very nervous to use new lotions and cannot use anything medical grade due to nursing right now so I have to be extremely careful using water.
I have recently started using gloves in the kitchen. I tried the kind you can reuse and the water would just get in the gloves or my hands would start to sweat then the material would actually make everything 10x worse. I’d have itching and horrible burning that just wouldn’t go away. So now I’m using noble gloves.. They don’t feel like I’m wearing gloves and best of all they’re not letting in any water to irritate my hands! It might not be the greenest option – but they’re allowing me to not use chemicals on my hands and sometimes I can get multiple uses out of them.
I use them whenever I’m cleaning raw meat or poultry, doing the dishes, and of course when cleaning baby things under the burning hot water! I like to use them for food prep too – I use them to wash the fruit/veg and then even chopping – hello no more smelly fingers from garlic or burning my eyes after touching them with Jalapeno hands! Acid from chopping tomatoes would really irritate my skin – not anymore!
Using these gloves helped my hands tremendously. The fact that they’re powder free and vinyl is a plus since those can be known irritants. So what’s my favorite thing to make using these gloves? Pico De Gallo! Yum So happy I stumbled across these gloves from The Webstaurant Store! Check them out on Facebook and Twitter. They have so many things for of course restaurants but home cooks as well!
