Keep Your Hands Safe As You Wash the Dishes

By August 27, 2015 blog No Comments

Domestic chores are never done, and many of them you will have to do time and time again. You may become overwhelmed by the repetition, but those chores do have to be finished. Professional cleaning services can be the answer, as there are a number of companies offering this service in Australia.

But even if you do hire professional cleaners for the tougher jobs, you still have plenty of housework to keep you busy. Washing the dishes is probably one of the most common ones. It’s easy enough, and many people make it easier with dishwashing machines. If you are not lucky enough to have such a machine, then you know the “joys” of washing by hand. If you wash by hand, then you should know that repeated washing can damage your hands and skin. Here we will cover some aspects of skin protection that will keep your hands safe as you wash dishes.

Two methods of hand protection should be used by everybody who washes by hand. First of all, use detergents for dish washing that are not harmful to you. Soap and water can get rid of most particles stuck to dishes, and you don’t need to resort to toxic chemicals. If you have trouble with some stick on food, just scrub harder to use hotter water. There are a wealth of cleaning products available, and you soul have no trouble finding ones that are gentle on your hands and still get the job done. If your hands are irritated by the cleaning detergents you use, look for something gentler next time to shop.

The second way you can protect your hands is by using gloves as you wash. They protect your hands from the filth on the dishes while ensuring that detergents don’t bother your hands too much. You should use them every time you wash dishes to keep your skin healthy.

There is another thing you can do as well to keep your hands safe- control the water temperature. Water that is too hot or too cold can cause severe damage.
