Using rubber gloves can protect your hands. In the kitchen, bathroom, nursing room and laundry areas, prepare four or five pairs of gloves. For other housework and gardening, use other gloves.
When gloves start to have holes, replace them immediately. When starting a cleaning job, make sure the gloves are completely dry.
When working outdoors, or in cool weather, wear unlined leather gloves to prevent dry or chapped skin.
If possible, avoid hand washing dishes or clothes.
When you wash your hands, use lukewarm water and soap to effectively kill bacteria. But do not use too much soap.
