    We have a very good hand cleaner by "Joe's" around here locally, but but it doesn't leave your hands smelling like a man. Well maybe it does these days but that's a different story altogether.

    I was laughing at the steprodent's graduation as I listened to the speech about how they had arrived to save the world. They were all wearing long dresses for good reason.

    20 years later, they've saved their world on their devices and not a one of the fools can look at a clock and tell what time it is. CCW and CW mean nothing, and don't dare tell one of them something needs to be set at the 4 oclock position to work. Hell they got welding machines with little digital readouts, and they don't know how to set the machine.

    Halitosis, the world be saved!

    If you put the nitrile gloves on on the way home, your hands will sweat clean.

    Autoparts stores sell pretty awesome citrus based cleaners that work pretty awesome. Water optional. One $10 dispenser seems to last through an awful lot of wrenching, for most people probably a year or so

    Baby oil
    .
    is basically mineral spirits and or a thin oil. it removes oil, grease, tar, many types of paint, etc
    .
    since its made for a baby it tends to be ok on your skin if not totally wiped off

    Interesting idea, but I wonder if police might see the gloves and assume
    you’ve stolen the truck, robbed a bank, or murdered someone.

    I try and wear them more and more while working with any greasy projects and chemicals as they all get absorbed into the skin and blood stream and cause bad things to happen to your health..also makes cleanup quicker..

    I also use Boraxo that's in a vintage chrome dispenser of the same name that I found at a salvage yard. Wet hands, give a couple of taps of powder, and a squirt of Dawn soap. Works great. The only problem with that method is you need water. I mounted my dispenser above an outdoor s.s. sink, but some don't have that option. For them waterless would be the way to go.

    Whatever hand cleaner in the orange container that's on sale, and lava hand soap to get hands really clean.

    I use "Oil Eater" liquid cleaner - available at auto parts store. Supposed to be safe even around food. Follow up with lava hand soap.

    I know that some people rub soap onto their hands while they're still clean and leave it and let it dry on their hands. It seems to fill the pores and prevent that fine soot and such from getting embedded in the skin. The only problem is that you can't wash your hands at all until the job is finished or else you have to repeat the process.

    I've also found the pumice free citrus cleaner, with NO water to be the best.

    Re: Hand cleaner

    Great ideas and suggestions! Thanks.
    I just recently stumbled on a cocktail that seems to work well for me- I use a white colored pumice based (thick) hand cleaner that is suggested to be used with water, but instead I mix it with the runnier yellow gritty mechanic's hand cleaner. This combo does well getting into all of the pores (wrinkles).
