Re: Help For Art Teacher Hands


Date: Sun Oct 19 2003 - 06:26:33 PDT

A friend art teacher, who has lovely hands gave me Efferdent tablets. She soaks her hands in them dissolved in warm water. Works for her. I forget to do it and my hands are falling apart. I forget hand cream, too. Hands in water evry few minutes some days.
