Get used to wearing gloves

At my work at the FO MO CO I wear gloves all day long so when I work out in the garage I also wear them. I have always worn some type of hand protection...old motorcycling trick!!! I really like these new $30 work gloves...just hate the price is all!!!

bk005 I always have the gallon jugs of GoJoe around, and I just use a bunch clean halfass sling the dirty mix in the trashcan, wall, celing, floor, and wipe with used blue shop towel. Then I go smoke a cig with my plesantly orange smelling hands.

julmer When I was working on diesels a lot, I used a white cream called "Invisible Glove" Came in a white tube and you just worked a little into your hands before you started. I haven't had any of that in a while so now I use just a dab of GoJo rubbed in before I start. Makes a considerable difference at wash up time. Also, guys, it's not just a girl thing. Using hand lotion regularly helps.

My mom used to do the same with motor oil... by the way, my mom taught me to gap points and plugs, and my dad taught me to cook....

RCastle Gotcha,I dont mess with any laquers where I am at.The only painting I do is with an old rattle can.I will be painting my car soon(hopefull)What do you suggest as far as hand protection?Momma is real picky about my hands being rough,if you know what I mean.

julmer Yeah, nitrile holds up better but not for everything. In lacquer thinner, latex lasts about 2 seconds, the nitrile make it 5 or 10.
Really cleaning guns is hard on hands.

I've been using Tide Laundry detergent for couple years

Plus the added benefit of knowing what little battle wounds you got that day.I used to use Tide or Dawn dish detergent.I have been using Latex gloves for some time.For the nasty jobs where chemicals like parts solvent,diesel,or alcohol is used I wear the Nitrile gloves.The Nitrile gloves are a little more expensive but hold up real good.

Farmers trick Bag Balm works great..before you start work put some of that on and the grease and dirt comes off alot easier
Bag balm is a must for anyone that works with their hands. Burns, cuts, scrapes,dry and chapped, it works great. Cheap, about 3 bucks a tin, a tin will last a year. Use very sparingly, a little goes a long way. I'll put some on before I dig into any greasy work, never thought of that one. Dan

1Fast65Elky I've been using Tide Laundry detergent for couple years, the powdered grainy kind of soap real men use .
But really, it takes every single spec of grime off of my hands and arms on the 1st wash. If it wasn't for the grease on my face you would never know I had been wrenching, Plus you get the added benifit of smelling like you have clean clothes on lol.
