Best Hand Cleaner

The OEM brand of hand cleaner sold at Autozone is manufactured by the same company makes the Snap On branded product. Great stuff, US company.

AutoGear I thought I posted in this thread. My brother works for Castle Products. They make the best glass cleaner I ever used (way before he got there) and their handcleaners are great too. There is a smooth and a gritty type liquid soap.
Made in Rochester, NY; which is good to support a small local business.

Also, I'm extremely sensitive to dyes. Cheap clothes, socks, soaps, lotions and even shampoos and hair care products. I break out it a (local) red rash.
I used to use cheap shampoo for oily hair; breaks through grease and doesn't dry out my hands. And its usually pretty cheap. Theres no grit, but I use a nail brush or vegetable brush (any soft bristled brush) and it takes the crud off easy. Im also sensitive to latex, so I have to use nitrile or a cream made to guard against 'contact dermatitis'; something like 'invisible glove'.
I even use this when I paint stuff. I wear the flex gloves, with the invisible glove stuff from the heel of my palm to about a third the way up my forearm, and my neck/collar area.

Ask your dentist for some old dental picks (after they've been sanitized) and a box of nitrile gloves. Mine usually gives em to me.

johnnyg I don't know, but they do smell fruity.

jeff_c Are they petroleum based? My big problem with all the 'orange' cleaners and other solvent based goop is that it dries out my skin and causes my nails to crack...not to mention the smell that my wife hates.

I used the sample i ordered about 5-6 times and it cleaned perfectly without the petroleum smell but I have no idea if it will cause the same issues (they say they don't).

I guess $12 bucks isn't too much of a risk for 1 1/2 lbs.

johnnyg I like the "Scrubs" in a bucket. They are towels so you can scrub your hands, and no rinse.

something I found recently

has anyone else tried the sample?

I just got mine and it seems to work very well and before I splurge for a full tub I wanted to see if others have tried it.

scrot Here's a couple of new hand cleaners.
Coconut and lemon lime scents! I saw these at Autozone.
I haven't tried them, but the scents can make washing your dirty hands a little more interesting.

Thats what I was getting ready to suggest, I didnt realize that HF sold it, I bought a tub sometime back at big lots and am down to about half a tub and was worried about not being able to find it.

deadbodyman I like the ladies,so I gotta save my pennies.I found out at an early age cars and girls go hand and hand(pun intended)Also nice clean soft hands are important.stinky hands BEFORE a date is a nono.So I use HF gloves to mix and paint cars... afterwards, if needed I can use a painters soap with softening additives in the latex gloves and put them on. but usualy when I do mechanical work,or I cut steel, I got some real nice woodworking gloves,made by ROC "very nice" they are resistant to cuts,even razor blades they are extremely thin too(I highly recomend them),then I use dawn dishwashing soap,it works great for grease and if you put it in the latex gloves and put them on for a while,it really works well, plus it keeps your hands in nice shape.years ago I could care less and my hands were so rough I could put a run in a pair of stockings just by rubbing a girls leg,that'll get you nowhere fast (but they do like getting an expensive pair of stockings)I dont know what the big deal is but someday I'll try on a pair (hey Joe Namath can do it,so can I).Dawn (and i'm talking about Tony Orlando's)works great for getting grease outta yer hair too.So if you aint real good lookin a great car really helps but a great car and clean hands gets.gets the ladies every time,ya dont even need a six-pac.
