This here is the downside of cooking. I don't particularly mind doing dishes. I do, however, mind doing lots of dishes.
If I'm simply cooking dinner, I'll just toss everything in the dishwasher & call it a day. But, when if I'm doing something involved...like, hosting a party, or doing a catering job, I have to hand wash most of it.
I'll cook something & when finished, I'll need all the stuff I just used for the next thing I'm cooking.
All of this leads to some very dry skin.
People would recommend I use dish gloves. But, I used to have an aversion to the way they felt & hated wearing them.
A friend bought me a cool, retro looking pair for my birthday last summer, I started wearing them & I've loved them ever since.
They eventually wore out & I replaced them with these. I never do dishes without them now & my hands thank me.
