    I use UdderBalm most of the time. It has a mild fragrance which is important to me.

    Sounds 'udderly' ridiculous but it works

    I recently wrote about a product called "HOOF", that I found at Walmart. My nails are now being filed --- for the firt time in my life, they're GROWING!

    And the only hand lotion I've found that I like and lasts (not having to put some on every half hour) is Gold Bond Ultimate Healing lotion. I don't have dry hands anymore!! Oh, Gold Bond also has a foot lotion -- no more cracks on my heals!

    Yes, I know what you mean, my thumb splits and starts bleeding. I get so mad. If I remember to be a rubber finger on that thumb it is great. I usually don't remember to do that until it is to late...

    Shania Twain was reported to use the stuff on her face...

    Thanks for all you remedies!! I am going to try the "hoof" because it the breaking of my nails that really bother me. I have Bag Balm, same as utter cream? As far as using it on my face, if I could look like Shania Twain I would use it. Thanks again

    I use Gloves In A Bottle BEFORE and after handling my fabric. It's a great lotion and won't leave a residue on your fabric.

    Bag Balm is the same basic stuff it just stinks where as the Udder Balm you get in the fabric store smells better. Bag Balm was made to treat cow udders when they'd get dry and cracked from milking. I guess the cows didn't care how it smelled. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I also use Gloves in a Bottle, because it doesn't rub off on your fabric, as raptureready said.

    featherweight, I use a product called 'New Skin' on my thumbs when the skin starts to peel. It comes in a small bottle (about the size of nail polish). It works great. Eiltcoq.
