Default Hand cleaner

I have trouble getting my hands clean from all the greasy parts I handle.
Used Dove beauty bar and worked pretty good then I thought spray some Shout on with the beauty bar lather
My hands came cleaner than any hand cleaner I've ever used
They even smell good

Good ideas. I put together something a few years ago when out of hand cleaner, and ended up with tiny blisters all over both hands. I couldn't remember what the combo was but, the Dr. told me not to use it again. No problem there.

Cooking oil works great for anything oil based. I use it first if I get thick grease into my cuticles or oil base paint or urethane on my hands. It dilutes it and then you can use dish soap to wash it all off. Might take a couple times, but it's better than smelling like paint thinner all night.

Default A little Corn Huskers lotion before you start....

and Dawn will cut thru about anything that you get on your hands from there...also keeps your hands soft for the Mrs...or significant other....LOL

if you have never tried corn huskers lotion it does keep the grease from soaking in....just is a bit thick and odd looking...

add a little kosher salt to your dawn dishwashing liquid.

My Grandpa was a heavy machinery mechanic. He always put hand lotion on and let it dry before getting dirty. The lotion fills the cracks and crevices so the grease won't.
