    Vinyl gloves. They're cheap, easy to put on/take off, & offer decent protection.
    "Historical examination of the right to bear arms, from English antecedents to the drafting of the Second Amendment, bears proof that the right to bear arms has consistently been, and should still be, construed as an individual right." -- U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings, Re: U.S. vs Emerson (1999)

    I don't do anything special to protect my hands. Just wash them when I'm done, scrub the fingernails with an old toothbrush if they are super dirty and make sure I lotion them up or put Vitamin E or Cuticle Oil on my nails every week or so just on general principles. I think I get more hand/nail damage from household cleaning than I do from cleaning guns.

    Either that or you can go to any medical supply store or pharmacy and pick up some size specific latex gloves that are a little thicker but nicely form fitting so you aren't feeling like your wearing oven mittens while cleaning.

    Truth be told, I've been known to steal a pair or two of small size latex gloves whenever I go to the doctor's office...lol. They are just that much thicker and nicer than the crap you get at box stores like Walmart.

    Thats all the protection you need for your hands.
    I retract my suggestion!

    You might try mPro 7 cleaner, if you are willing to change products. It is a very mild cleaner that seems to do the job without being so rough on skin. Don't know how it compares to Frog Lube or newer stuff but I have been satisfied with it for many years, and I don't use gloves.
