Adam's Polishes has a great hand cleaner with crushed walnuts.

Tub o towels works for me. The large tub is in the garage, cleans up greasy dirty hands nicely and doesn’t dry out your skin. Large yellow/black tub costs about $10.00 at advance auto.

Used to love the Lava soap in a pump until prices soared. Iíve moved my portfolio out of equities into Lava Pump Soap:

I've been using Fast Orange for years, works great.

It even takes off the green residue and odor after I've been working in my tomato patch.

I have totally converted to nitrile gloves. When I forget or get stupid, I use Gojo Natural Orange for cleaning my hands, great stuff and smells good too.

I've used ULINE Tuff Wipes (textured, 9.5" x 12", S13780) for many years. I order a case (75 per canister) at a time - It also works with dried house paint on your hands, etc.. Sometimes a paper towel is useful to remove the residual cleaning fluid from the cleaned area.

I aloo keep some Goop rough towel packets in the glover box, in case of a tire change or ---.

Yep, olive oil is about the most benign, and works as a gentle solvent for many things. My wife likes the smell of fast orange.b but it can dry your hands.

Goop is the only old type that has not changed..not only a hand cleaner but the best thick tool lube for lathe work, tapping threads, drilling holes and removing rusty nuts after you heat them up nice and hot. All the new formulas took out the hydrated kerosene and do not work as well as the old ones.

Ok, this is my go to now, don't laugh. Whole foods 365 body wash.
I will admit I normally wear gloves, but I work in the garage 3-4 days a week. Some times gloves rip, leak, tear at inopportune times and you get dirty hands. I have used most of the options listed above and they all worked pretty well. I was out of hand cleaner one day and grabbed some of my wife's body wash to clean my hands. To my surprise it actually worked really good. It is all is use now (probably for last 4 years). It comes in mint (currently have colloidal oatmeal as they were out of mint). Yes, Whole foods 365 body wash. It takes a little more scrub time but does a excellent job and does not dry my hands out as much as some other cleaners I have used.
