Just work naked, it saves on laundry.

Iíve used everything to clean my hands after working on the cars. Unfortunately, the worst was gasoline, lacquer thinner, brake cleaner, etc. Now, if I get any of that on my hands, I get a really bad case of contact dermatitis. Swollen hands, fingers, etc. terrible itching. Not too mention itís not good for the nervous system.

Now itís nitrile gloves and Dawn dish soap.

I haven't used it on car type greasy hands, but I get dirt, mud, and grass stains on my hands from working around the garden and it takes it right off. It feels gritty at first but softens as you wash and gets a kind of lotion texture to it. It's good stuff.

There are instructions on how to wash your hands on the can, but no instructions about how to get the can open. There are little round indentations on the top of the can. I finally figured out you just poke them out with a nail.

Update: So I had a $5.00 coupon for a local FLAPS and used it to buy a half gallon jug of Gojo orange with pumice . Have used it a couple of times and it's ok but I will try others after this one is gone. Not saying it doesn't work just want to try what's out there .

Snap on Nitro Gold with fibril is the best I have used. Cleans very well and quickly plus it doesn’t dry out my hands. It also doesn’t have or leave a smell Which I appreciate.

I use it because my wife likes the smell.

White cotton gloves, like the Honda F1 mechanics used to.

Patrick, I'm glad you like it.
I considered including a note regarding opening the can, but assumed you'd figure it out. A nail is indeed the preferred method
(I'll suggest adding a note to the label, though)

I kept thinking there were two discs with holes in them and you screwed the top disc around to line up the holes.
I did eventually figure it out, but I did a lot of grumbling ("Ive been washing my hands for 65 years I don't need instructions for that, but how the hell am I supposed to get this damn can open?")
