Since I had my little baby, I have to wash hands so much more often than any other time. My hands soon became so dry and so chapped. No matter how much cream I used before my night sleep, the second day they were still horrible. Also, cream on your hands is not safe if the baby puts them in their mouth. Cream left on bottles when feeding baby is not safe either.

I apply white vinegar and glycerin blended liquid to both hands, even dry parts of body, the result is much better and quicker. Not only both hands feel better moisturized, they are safe for kids. The proportion between white vinegar and glycerin is 5:1.
