On the topic of cleaning, I like to have everything in its place and the kitchen sink clean – and I also love to keep my manicure lasting as long as it can! See what other bloggers have come up for recipes and additional cleaning tutorials here.

With gardening and dishes to clean, I always try to wear gloves and protect my hands and nails. Pick up a pair of kitchen gloves and buy a grommet kit from your hardware store (so easy!). Your kit will have instructions but I want to show you how easy it is.

How to add Grommets to Dishwashing Gloves

Note: Don’t do this on granite or sensitive tops that might crack (this was for demonstration purposes) – the ground is best.

Step 1

Find the under glove side (bottom of wrist). Place hardware backer (wood piece) below the work surface and place hole cutter less than an inch from top. Strike with hammer or plastic mallet.

Step 2

Flip over gloves, so new hole is on the bottom layer (looks better when the grommet is finished). Place grommet post up on anvil and center the hole in the glove hole over tube. Place washer rounded side up over grommet tube and glove.

Step 3

Insert punch into the tube and strike it firmly with a hammer, rotate the punch 1/4 turn between the strikes until the grommet and washer is tight with the glove.

Done!

Hang! I hang ours in the cabinet under the sink for easy reach and out of sight.
