Alright, here's the story.
I live in a cold climate, so when winter strikes, small rodents like to look for warm places.
My room/basement has mice.

I've spent the last two days cleaning EVERYTHING, ripping out carpet, dusting, scrubbing and just going nuts.
In this time, I've gone through almost a full bottle of Windex.

Well, contrary to the belief of the dad in Big Fat Greek Wedding, Windex doesn't help cure Windex-based ailments.
My hands are cracking and bleeding.
Lotion burns (I've tried everything, even the baby's lotions burn so bad I have to wash them off).

What can I use - that is generally around the house - to save my skin???

olive oil, might be gentle enough. And ask in the bath&beauty board too.

I second the olive oil idea.  My mom is a professional cleaner, and she hardly uses anything else on her skin and hands.

Thank you so much!
I used it and I'm actually capable of using my regular lotion again (I don't much care for the smell, lol)!

Glad you are better: next time, or for someone else, I would ask a pharmacist and put whatever they recommended on generously under soft cotton gloves.

They generally suggest something you have to buy.
I have about 47 cents to my name atm, so that wouldn't have worked, lol.
Elsewise I would have.

Next time (in case it comes up again), I would suggest rubber gloves as a preventative measure.

Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!
