What's the best Hand Cleaner and/or Soap

I know there's a lot of opinions about which is the best hand cleaner and/or soap that removes oil and grease from the hands, but I'm sure some will stand out more than others.

I know gloves are good for keeping your hands clean, but I can't stand wearing them.

What's your opinion on which hand cleaner/soap for cleaning your hands when you're done working on your car?

Thanks in advance?

Do a search on the site we have had a large discussion on the subject before.

Thanks

I meant to do a search before I posted and forgot to do it.

You're right, there's a ton of threads dealing with hand cleaners. I read one that recommended Hand Kind and I think I will try it.

Thanks again.

Poncho

I just bought some. Here's the site (http://www.kindchemical.com/). It's pricey, but if it's good it's worth it. I bought two bottles because you save a lot on the second bottle. I'll give the second one to my son because the 24 oz bottle will last me for years.

Also, do a search on the board and you'll see Hand Kind hand cleaner quite a bit.

One thing I found over the years is many do a great job of cleaning my hands, but some of them were bad about drying out my skin.

Best advice I was given by a skin Dr about the dermatitis I would get, use a good lotion before beginning work and again after washing up at the end of the day.
Never had another case of dermatitis or cracked callouses.

dawn dishwashing detergent. it worked for me for 31 years in the repair business. it's cheep and doesn't dry your hands out. I also use gloves in a bottle, for some chemical protection, when I'm getting elbow deep in it. my wife works at a local hospital and brought me some several years ago. been using it ever since. great stuff and also available online.

Old Fool, the idea about the hand lotion sounds good. I think I'll try it cause I always have cracked skin on my thumb mainly, but on other fingers as well.

Thanks.

I've always used dishwashing detergent as well. Seems to work better for me than all the orange-bottled products.

Once you get used to gloves you will never look back.

Try Murphy oil soap. Its made for cleaning wood. I found out about this a couple months ago when I got some Gorilla glue on my hands. It was the only thing I found that removed the glue. I've been using it since and it works great on grease and dirt and doesn't dry your hands out.
