funny really 

i was just watching a French fellow m/homer going over to wash his dinner plates and stuff

he has some blue gloves on to do the washing up

surely that is a bit extreme i can understand it if its the black waste tank

i badly cut my finger the other day and had to have 6 stitches in it  as it was over the knuckle and quite deep

when i showered this morning i put the hand in a plastic bag with some tape to seal it i also used the opportunity to empty our black tank before throwing the bag away

Sorry about your wound and pleased l you’re saving the planet by reusing the plastic bag.
Your comments about the Frenchman and his blue gloves… Was that because he was male using gloves or because anyone was using gloves? We both use rubber gloves for washing up! Not that I do it very often!!!

I'm well 'ard, never use plastic gloves at all for anything. [smile]

I do have one of those disinfectant spray gels to use after emptying the loo though.

I can understand using Marigolds to wash up as it means you can have the water hotter for better cleaning. I always keep some handy, even in the van, though I rarely use them these days.

The thin latex type I only use for dirty workshop jobs, or when using epoxy resin.

The only time I use latex gloves are when topping up the diesel or emptying the black tank. I suppose I ought to use marigolds when washing up at home because my right hand gets really bad splits in it, especially in the winter time, but never do. I think it's a combination of cold weather and the washing up liquid. My mam used to have the same problem.

That Norwegian Formula stuff is good for letting the hands heal. You only use the tiniest amount.

When I've had cracks and splits I apply it at bedtime so it has the chance to work. Usually a couple of days and things are healed.

Plus one for the Norwegian cream.
Wonder what it would do for your knee Geoff.

Do you know what the brand name is Tugs? I've tried many different creams, including stuff prescribed by the Dr, and although some are semi successful most just don't work on my dandies.

It's this stuff, Nick. Comes with blue or red caps depending on whether you want scented.

Have you tried emollient cream Nick?

You can get it on prescription from the doc - Zerobase emollient cream - in a big 500g dispenser.

Pete, the last time I was at the Drs. I was prescribed it along with a small tube of some other stuff. It seems to ease the soreness for a few hours but doesn't actually get rid of the complaint. I will try some of what Tugs recommends and if that doesn't work I will maybe take another trip down to the doctors. The annoying part is that it really only gets bad in the winter even if I wear gloves. And it only seems to affect my right hand.

Nick.

Can’t get rid of me that easily Geoff! 😆

I take it you are still waiting to see the nurse about your knee on Monday? How are you sleeping?

That's right Lin. Just had 2 separate hours of sleep, up for 4 hours in between.
