    I have a suggestion for you re: the bag balm. Go to a Dollar Store and look for food handlers gloves. They are the thin plastic ambidextrous ones…usually a dollar for a box of a hundred. Totally disposable. If you do not have a Dollar Tree or Dollar Zone in your area I am sure drugstores have them. There are many household chores that they are handy for as well.

      That is a good idea, I tried using toilet tissue to spread it last night and that didn’t work so well. Paper towels would probably be equally unwieldy, I’ll try your suggestion!

    I am a retired RN. Washing one’s hands, dozens of times a day, leaves them dry and cracked. Bag Balm is a staple in home of every nurse or should be , if it isn’t. I’ve been out of the hospital for over twenty years, and we were using Bag Balm long before that. Thank you for writing about it.

      June, interesting, didn’t know bag balm had been around so long, but it DOES work….I’m thrilled to know about it!
