A lot of guys I worked with liked to use Bag Balm, it worked great but felt "greasy" to me. I found
and worked well for my skin, I prefer the Aveeno though. I carried a tube in my lunch pail and have a tube in the top of my tool box at home too.

That Joe's Hand cleaner I use is gentler on the hands compared to those orange bottles like gojo and permatex.

GOJO Powergold is some of the more readily available that I have found, We have some pretty good stuff at work, but you have to go somewhere industrial to find it.

Ive used many over the years I kind of keep going back to gojo! But no cleaner ever gets the black out of the deep cracks in my hands from 50 years of over use, scares and wear and tear!!! But when you eat chicken it seams like it cleans your finger tips spotless!!! Now if some one could make hand cleaner that could clean like that it would be earth moving LOL!!

the power gold is much better than the regular go jo, and I find the hospital type brushes help clean out the crevices and fingernails.

I received a sample of Bear Paw a while back. This is about the best cleaner that I have found. It's gritty like Boraxo (which is my second choice) but it also has lanolin in it plus some other stuff. I get really greasy working on dies in a fab shop and I have yet come across anything Bear Paw won't get out. It also does not dry your hands out and especially around the cuticles of your fingers.

here is the site http://www.bearpawhandcleaner.com/

Received a couple trial packets of Tuff Scrub yesterday. Have not had the chance yet to try it out.
Seems to be a small start up company from what I can find on Google.

The web address on the package redirects to a local nut and bolt supply house where I received the samples.

"But no cleaner ever gets the black out of the deep cracks in my hands from 50 years of over use, scares and wear and tear!!! "

Red Scotch Brite and Ivory bar soap, the heavy duty pads NOT the painter scuff pads.

It will take off almost anything (paint, primer, glaze, bondo, grease, chassis black, tar, ect.), does clean out the cracks and does not dry out your skin. I would suggest using a hand lotion after you dry off.

It does not remove scars and it doesn't like windshield urethane (use solvent first) but everything else comes right off.

X2 on the handkind. I had a sample, good stuff, just hard to get in Canada. I have issues with cracking skin, and Gojo, ect, were horrible! The stuff from Knd Chemical was very effective, and gentle on the skin.

Orange Goop Is The Best !

I could be a salesman for orange GOOP. It has been around since 1949 and is the best that I have ever used. Just make sure to work it in real good before you add any water. Oft times I stand in front of the batroom mirror to make sure I get it worked into all the filth and then get in the shower. Work it into the grease spots on your favorite tee shirt before putting it in the washing machine, aslo. It still amazes the wife. I find it at Harbor Freight.

Cherry Blast

I use one called "Cherry Blast" from Kimball Midwest. Works excellent on all kinds of grit and grime, (has pumice). Doesn't dry my hands and make them crack, etc. like GoJo, or other pro hand cleaners do. Just takes a small amount and gets them extremely clean with no 'cleaner" smell afterwards.
