    Dishwashing detergent. It may or may not be as effectiv as some of that fancy stuff but it works and it's cheap.

    Joe's. It is the best by far and it doesn't have pumice in it.

    When I'm at the house dawn works great. When out on the trail a hand full of grass or dirt./forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    I have yet to find anything that cuts grease better than dawn. Except for full blown engine degreaser, but that's rough on the skin, LOL

    I use a dallop of clean grease. It washes away the old dirty grimy stuff, then use soap and water to clean off the rest. It works really well.

    My friend Jordan introduced me to this stuff at his parents shop that I think is some type of paint remover that they got off the Snap-On truck...it is very similar to many other pumice-type cleaners I have used except it worked nearly flawlessly....

    Here's my advice...........

    DON'T use the "fancy guest towels" in the bathroom.


    Bad Idea. /forums/images/icons/blush.gif

    Even after wrenching for 10 hrs a day my hands are still pretty clean.
    I wear TNT nitril rubber gloves.
    I have a bunch in the rig and at home. I have been using them for a long time.
    Having your hands dipped in all kinds of nasty stuff all day for 15 years does strange things to the skin.
    The cool thing is that my shop supplies them as safety equipment, good thing they are $14 for a box of 100.
    I read this thing several years ago, your hands will absorb 2 teaspoons of oil per day if you wrench for a living.

    Yerp, I've been doing the same. Get some odd looks, running around with docters gloves on, but my hands are in MUCH better shape with the gloves. (we have to pay for them tho')

    I'm sticking with Dawn. That stuff rocks.
    Best I've ever used.
