    I split open a walnut husk the other day by hand, and this black juice came out and got all over my hands.
    I thought nothing of it at the time, but now I've scrubbed it for 3 days, and the stain remains. Some of the stains actually looking like the trail of the liquid.

    Anyone have any tips for cleaning stained skin and fingernails? The least violent and non-RJ like methods the better...

    those stones you can buy in the health and beauty section at any department store work great. i believe they're made for calluses, but it works great removing oil and grease stains. just don't use it too much cuz it'll start takin fingerprints off.

    or just apply mass amounts of lotion. the excess amount of water in your skin will actually "push" the stain out.

    Clean wheel bearing grease always cleans the stains off of my hands then a little dawn or fast orange and all done.

    all grease has soap in it..thats why it cleans your hands...

    i also vote for rebuilding auto trannies...the detergent in atf that keeps varnish from building up also cleans your hands very nicely...but probably causes cancer...so you might break even depending on how important clean hands are to you.
