As an online professional who spends most of my time on my computer, I had to deal with an uncomfortable condition called FRICTION BURN on my wrist. I get it from using a mouse continuously and the bones on my wrist rub against the hard edge of the table.
Note: Please excuse some of the out-of-focus pics. I photographed my own hand and my left hand isn’t very stable.
There are products you can buy to prevent this like those long pads that cover not only the area of the mouse, but also the area near the keyboard as you type, or the mouse pad with a little cushion on it. I have used all those and the one drawback of these products is you can’t wash them—they were never meant to be washed.
I came up with a solution that is effective and would not cost you a cent!
What you’ll need:
An old sock (to protect just one hand) or a pair of old socks (if you want to protect both hands)
Just use the first glove as a stencil for the second one if you want a pair. Embellish with lace or googly eyes, whatever makes you happy. Personally, I like mine plain.
The great thing about using socks for this project is that if you cut it, it doesn’t run. But you can stitch around the edges if you like. You can also wash it just as you would any pair of socks. Happy DIY-ing!
