Do You Wear Gloves to Wash Dishes?

Do You Wear Gloves to Wash Dishes?

I get very attached to my favorite cleaning tools, like this dish brush and my Bona mop. But one thing that has never made it into my cleaning box is a pair of dishwashing gloves. On the rare occasion I've used gloves, I feel clumsy and all thumbs, always on the point of dropping a dish. So I admit I don't quite understand the appeal of dish gloves. Do you use them?

If so, do you have a favorite pair? Do you have a swanky set of hot pink gloves? Or do the plain old yellow ones work just fine for you? And why do you wear them? To protect your manicure? Keep your hands clean? Are dish gloves one of your favorite cleaning tools, and if so, why?
