Everyone who works with various types of thread and fabrics knows the importance of hand care, along with the annoyance of snagging threads. One old bit of care is widely known, and it works very well. Mix equal amounts of olive oil (you can substitute jojoba or almond oil) with sugar. You now have a nice gloop. Scoop it out, and rub it all over your hands, and keep rubbing for a bit, as if you were washing them. After a bit, wash hands normally, and there you go. It’s a good routine to get into when it comes to hand care.
