Another reason to wear them is the fact that your skin can be dried out by the hot water when you were washing dishes. Excessive contact with hot water can damage your hands over a period of time.

It also protects your hands against any chemicals or solutions that have alcohol in them that can cause your skin to have an allergic reaction or other reaction to any unknown agents.
