When grating cheese or vegetables with a box grater, wear a clean dish washing glove. It keeps knuckles from being scraped, if you get too close to the grater. It also helps keep a grip on the food being grated. When finished, just rinse the gloves on hang to dry.

I used to hate cleaning the grater when I was little. Well, before grating anything, make sure the food is hard or frozen.
