How To Get Grease off Hands
A job well done in the garage or workshop often shows in the grease, grime and oil on your hands. Using ordinary dish soap for handwashing often makes more of a mess than it cleans, and doesn't do the heavy duty job necessary to get rid of the soils and odors that linger from handling engine grease, oils, brake carbon, lubricants and more.
Most cleaners made for degreasing are not meant for use on skin, containing harsh chemicals that can strip your hands of their natural oils, or worse. Citrus-based cleaners can cause issues as well, stinging any cuts and abrasions on your hands.
Home-remedy solutions such as coffee, sugar or powdered laundry soap are often weak and abrasive. These aren't designed to degrease or deodorize. Instead, a deep-cleaning and deodorizing hand cleaner is recommended. Simple Green Hand Cleaner Gel removes grease, grime, dirt, oil, wet paint, tar, soot, carbon and more with natural pumice to enhance cleaning and lanolin that moisturizes and protects your hands.
Simple Green Hand Cleaner Gel can be used with or without water.
- Apply to hands.
- Rub hands together in a washing motion then wipe clean or rinse clean with water.
- For tough soils, repeat as necessary
