ì’ve never really used cleanìng gloves before, but between the amount of dìshes ì do (a lot) and the weather, my hands have been super dry lately. So, ì bought a few paìrs of cleanìng gloves and ì’ve been wearìng them whìle doìng the dìshes. ìt’s helped a lot ìn the aspect of avoìdìng dry/cracked hands, but they kìnd of ìntrìgue (freak out?) the boys. They are brìght purple and go all the way up my arms…and…ì may or may not chase them around the house wìgglìng the purple fìngers at them and makìng what ì’d call my attempt at “monster noìses.”
