I was doing the dishes the other day and I typically wash them with rubber gloves. This time I happened to put hand creme on before I put on my gloves and when I took them off...
I can't even say it.
They were soft beyond imagination.
And I just used a really basic hand lotion, but imagine the possibilities - what if, what if, you used shea butter and coated them in a layer of petroleum jelly? Imagine!
I wash my dishes in really hot water, so I think it's the heat that helped the lotion absorb in as well as it did.
Go do your dishes.
