    What do yall use to get grease and other stuff off your hands after workin on your junk all day? Gojo takes most of it off I've found, but I still have grease stains on my hands and wrists after 10 minutes of scrubbing, and the lady-friend doesn't like that. And we all know that if the lady-friend is happy, everyoneis happy. Help a brother out.

    dish soap, real stuff no anti bacterial or scented crap. DAWN seems to work the best.:)

    one time i was out of hand cleaner and had to discover the wonderful use of Liquid detergent like tide for washing your clothes, use a scrub brush and you'll be suprised.

    Didn't have any GOJO back when so we used kerosene. Even better is kerosene mixed with atouch of degreaser, like Purple Power.

    I like to leave big greasy paw prints on the wife's perfumey, fruit filled, anti-bacterial, foo-foo, gel soap.

    Just to remind her of her place.

    I wear gloves (either latex or Mechanix, depending on the temp and/or type of work)

    If I forget or don't have access, Gojo and the pretty blue nail brush that it comes with.... I scrub my hands front & back and it digs the dirt out from the fingerprints and everything.

    Gloves make all the difference though...

    Permatex Hand Cleaner is what our company supplies us with, and it works so well it makes Gojo look like hand soap. It's the only product that can take pipe primer off of skin. The primer we use is about one step below POR15!!!!!:eek1:

    Nothing breaks up grease like a thick slathering of dishsoap.
