I know washing the dishes can make your hands dry and your cuticles crack. They say to wear gloves when doing house chores, but honestly who does.
“Dish out” those harmful chemicals and, try going green! Harmful chemicals like dish detergent, bleach, Comet, even Windex, can strip the skin of its natural oils. For sensitive skin, it can cause irritation and burning. They also can cause premature aging. Also, vapors from common household products, are harmful to your health. I’m not sure if you ever read the labels on cleaning products, however if it states, “MAY CAUSE CANCER”, then it is time to buy a new cleaning product.
