Default Cheap and effective hand cleaner.

A lot of you may know about this one already, but in case you don't........

Like everyone else, I have gone through gallons of Go-Jo and Fast Orange hand cleaner over the years. It works ok, but is getting pricey. My son put me onto something that actually works better than the store bought stuff. What you need are:

1) A dishwashing liquid like Dawn. But I buy the green one at the dollar store and it is just as good.

2) Baking Soda. Again, I buy it at the dollar store.


Put some dish detergent in your dry hands, then pour on a little baking soda and rub vigorously. You may only need to add a very little water. You will see the dirt and grease start to come off and when you rinse your hands they will be spotless.

If you have dish detergent and baking soda at home, try it the next time your have grimy hands. It also leaves your hands softer.


Next week I will give you all a recipe for blueberry muffins !

Glad it worked well for you too. IMO, it is as good or better than the ones you buy, and if you do the dollar store routine , it is super cheap and goes far. Just a little of each part in the hand is all it takes.

I think it is also better for the drains in the house/shop. We had a plumber come in one time to remove roots from our shop drain, and he said it he finds someone has been using something like Fast Orange, he can not get the stuff out of their drains, it turns to concrete. I don't think the baking soda will have that problem.


Now, about those brownies..................

I imagine someone will remind me about how you are not supposed to get used oil on your skin, but I use used trannie fluid, especially if I'm just wanting to get the grim off to pack a wheel bearing or something like that.

If you're packing bearings by hand, just wear gloves. $5 for a box of 100. Problem solved while avoiding unnecessary carcinogens and general mess. Time saver too.
