Some people like to stay away from the cold water, so they prefer to put their fingers into a warm container or even a cup of hot water. There are many different types of containers available such as plastic cups, glass jars and metal pots and pans. Some people like to keep their hands free while working around the house or doing chores around the home. So they prefer to keep their hands free when working around the house or doing chores around the home.
There are several ways of keeping your fingers dry. You can:
Use a towel (or handkerchief) to cover your fingers. A towel will prevent you from getting chapped skin on your fingertips. If you don’t want to use a towel, then just place one or two paper towels under each finger before putting them into the container.
Even better, you can get finger cots. . They are small and usually made of latex, vinyl or plastic. Most people call them put on like a glove. Depending on the size of your fingers, most are either too big or too small.
Use cotton gloves. If you have sensitive skin, you may prefer to use washable cotton gloves when doing household chores such as cleaning or washing dishes. They’re great for keeping your hands dry and preventing them from becoming irritated.
Finger cots are cheap and can be reused over and over again. However, you can’t use them for extended periods of time because it tends to make your fingers feel uncomfortable after a while.
Finger cots only cover the top part of your finger. When putting your hands into water or any other liquid, you have to completely immerse your hand for the finger cots to be effective.
If you want more protection for your hands, then disposable gloves may be a better solution for you. They cover not only your fingers but also the back of your hand up to your wrist. In fact, some disposable gloves are made to look like part of the sleeve on your shirt.
Remember, when using disposable gloves, you want to make sure that the gloves are:

*Not made from latex. If you’re allergic to latex, then you need to make sure that the gloves that you’re using do not contain any latex.
*Of good quality. This sounds obvious, but you would be surprised at the number of people who buy cheap, flimsy gloves that are poorly made and have a short shelf life. It might cost you more to buy good quality gloves, but you’ll get more use out of them over the long-term.
The key to keeping your hands dry is to make sure that you have the right type of disposable gloves for the job. Check out your local hardware or grocery store. You’ll find that they offer a wide selection of disposable gloves for sale.
36. What are some tips on cleaning the tub, sink, toilet, tile and floors?
You would be surprised at how many people make a big mess when cleaning the bathroom. Here are some tips on what to use and how to clean these areas in your home.
Tubs, Sinks, and Toilets
Most people don’t give their bathroom a thorough cleaning more than once a year. As you might expect, these places are breeding grounds for bacteria. You should clean these areas at least once a month. The following tips will show you how:
Bathtub. Since it’s difficult to get behind a bathtub to scrub, it needs to be cleaned from the top. Take your shower attachment with a long hose and turn the water on as hot as it will go. Point the shower head at the sides and bottom of the tub and let the water run through for at least one hour (or more if needed). The running water will help to break down any soap scum or hard water deposits.
After an hour, turn off the water and use a sponge or rag to wipe down the entire interior of the tub. For tough stains and hard water deposits, use a non-toxic cleaner especially designed for the bathroom.
Finish off by wiping down the sides and bottom of the tub with a clean rag and some vinegar. This will help to stop any future build up from occurring. For an extra shiny finish, you can apply a coating of car wax on the surface of the tub. It may not be recommended for use on acrylic bathtubs, but it will make the surface shiny and protected.
Toilets. When most people think about cleaning their toilet, they tend to think about the toilet bowl. While this is important to keep clean, you should also spend time cleaning the top of the toilet as well as the base. Soap scum and hard water stains tend to build up in these areas and go unnoticed. Use your non-toxic cleaner and a rag to wipe down these areas.
Following this, you should use your rag to go over the entire toilet, top to bottom. Be sure to get into all of the groves and crevices with a little extra effort. This will help to break up any hard water build up that has occurred. For stubborn spots, use extra elbow grease or some baking soda and a little vinegar on the worst areas.
Next, you should clean the seat. Wipe down the seat and the area around the seat with your rag and cleaner. Be sure to get into all of the groves and crevices.
Finally, use a fresh rag to wipe down the entire seat area once more. This will remove any dirt or grime that was loosened by the cleaning process.
Floors. Next, clean the floors around the base of the toilet and behind it as well. Wipe down the floor with the rag and non-toxic cleaner. This will help to break up any dirt, dust, or grime that has accumulated on the tile or around the base of the toilet.
Once you have cleaned behind the toilet, mop up any water that is on the floor with your rag. You can then take a wet rag and wipe down the tiles in front of the toilet as well. This will give them a nice shine and make the flooring look uniform in appearance.
After wiping down the entire floor, take one more rag and use it to wipe down the base of the toilet once again. This will remove any excess cleaner that wasn’t soaked up by the rag or tile.
Shower. When cleaning your shower or tub, you want to pay special attention to these four areas: the corners, the sides, the top, and the curtain or door.
