No need for hand cleaners just regular soap.


I use this (Glove Cote)

I forgot to mention in my earlier post about a 2:00AM trip to the e-room after cleaning a transmission with K-1, thinner and diesel fuel. Yes, it does absorb. Yes, you WILL eventually get sick. No, I wont use any of that stuff again for cleaning parts nor even handle without nitrile gloves or for sure use for a hand cleaner. Fast Orange and/or soap of some sort.

hand cleaner.....

I work in the offshore industry and you talk about a job that will get you greasy. On the drilling rigs they antiseize/pipe dope by the 5 gallon bucket. (one drop of any never/anti-seize and you are smearing it everywhere, right?) What these guys use is called barrier cream and is made by
GOJO. You put it on before you go to work and oil and grease can not penetrate the skin., so no more stains. Then plain old DAWN dishwashing soap(it takes grease out of your way) and it does. It pulls the grease off your hands without pulling the oils out of your hands. Give it a try most parts can order you a tube for like 5 bucks and goes a very long way.

This is about the same stuff as the Evercoat "Glove Cote" although it does look somewhat different. It is everything you said and then some!

Yep, that's what I use. And if my hands are really dirty I'll add some Boraxo.

Re Hand Cleaner

I take good old DAWN & rub it into my hands & let it dry then
it seals all of your pores & when i get done i use DAWN again.There is a
product out there called INVISIBLE GLOVE & it works too.I was working on
a semi tractor at a food warehouse & my hands were full of grease i was going inside to wash up when this guy tipped over a pallet full of shampoo.
All of us went over there & picked up all of the broken bottles.I washed my hands with shampoo & boy did that ever clean them.

And if you can't find IG or Glove-cote, get your pharmacist to order you some Kerodex-51.

I agree that stuff is way to harsh and could cause some serious skin problems. I once talked to a guy who used lacquer thinner to clean his paint guns but at the same time he got it on his hands leading to severe cracking around the joints. I noticed he had some really bad looking skin cracks that, believe it or not, he had sewn up with a needle and thread to prevent them from getting worse! When I asked him what had happened to him he explained about the thinner but did not say why he continued to use it, I never bothered to ask him any more.

Mean Green is the Best Hand Cleaner that I have ever used.

This stuff will remove anything on your hands and it has no harmful ingredients. It is awesome. I found a blog about it check it out.

Have you tried the smooth formula Fast Orange? The pumice formula will cause some problems and is the reason I switched to the smooth type which actually helped my hands heal, this stuff is almost as good as a hand lotion.
Oldred, where are you getting the smooth formula from, ordering it online or in a store? I use the fast orange but all the parts stores around here have the pumice formula.
Thanks,
Steve

Getting the smooth formula is sometimes hard to do and for a long time I had to order it however recently I found it at small local discount store. Wal-Mart had it for a long time but now I think the pumice is all they carry too. NAPA has it in their store brand (I forget exactly what they call it) it is the same Fast Orange in the same containers but with NAPA's label.

I just got the smooth Fast Orange made by Permatex #23113. It's a 15 oz. bottle that was $4.35 my cost. I bought it at the local Parts Plus store, and thought I might try it to see how it works.

Thanks for the info. I'll let you know what I think of how it works.

I've always been a "pumice" man.

Aloe baby wipes work so well I gave up all my gooey hand cleaners, I however keep some almond shell abrasive/clay based hand cleaner made by a manufacturer that is no longer in business for the really nasty stuff.

I am allergic to almost any petroleum based cleaner and even the citrus based stuff gives me grief with dematitus so I am real careful with what I use to clean my hands.

It does work good, but it requires the use of a brush. (which came on the bottle) Some times I have had to wash & brush two times to get the grime off. This bottle is almost empty, and does not appear to be as "cost effective" as NAPA brand # 1505, for me. It does have pumice, and all of the fine qualities of this Fast Orange product, with no smell afterward.

I purchase 1 jug of the NAPA hand cleaner, @ $13.00 twice a year. Compare that to $4.35 in almost per month.

Back to "Pumice Man" for me.
