My Mundane Musings

Growing up I longed for the fast paced life of big city life and corporate America. Now I’m a stay at home mom of 4 in a small rural community! And I wouldn’t have it any other way! (At least for now).

Goop on my hands… September 10, 2008

I love to cook. Really. Hate my kitchen, but still love to cook. Especially after discovering vinyl gloves!

We went to a friends house for dinner one night and as we walked in, she was chopping garlic and had gloves on her hand. Not big gloves like dishwashing/cleaning gloves (do those things make anyone else’s hands sweat like they do mine?), but latex/vinyl gloves like doctors wear.

My mind screamed BRILLIANT! And starting racing with the possibilities.

So, I went out and bought a box. They were buy the first aid supplies at my Target. And now I find myself using them almost daily.

I use them any time I have to do anything with dough. I don’t even have to take my rings off anymore. I use them any time I have to handle raw meat with my hands. I use them any time I might otherwise find myself washing my hands over and over and over again while I prepare a meal.

And you know how it is – as soon as you get your hands dirty, one of the kids needs you. The phone rings. There is a knock at the door. When you’re wearing gloves, you simply pull them off and go! GENIUS!!!

What’s your favorite kitchen tip?

    OH, those gloves are just awesome in the kitchen. I bought a box at Sam’s Club about a year ago…am still using them. I appreciate them more when I have to touch raw meat–chicken, beef, etc. Keeps my hands from feeling too ‘germy’!

    I also use them around the house when I am doing other duties too. They are well worth it….and yep, just rip them things off when the children need ya or the phone rings….your hands appreciate it!!!!

    My kitchen tip is this – fill the sink and wash as you go.

    We have those gloves in the house right now, I have never thought to use them in the kitchen – Great idea!

    Have a great day,

    I agree, gloves are great.

    My other tip? When something smelly gets on your hands (like garlic or onion), rub them on the bottom of a stainless steel bowl–no more smell!

    Also? My stand mixer is GREAT for mixing up meatloaf–can’t stand my hands getting uber frozen when mixing meat with my hands.
