If it's the tough black nasty old grease/grime, I use WD40 and a paper towel to get the worst off, then follow with one of these:
No water in the new shop, so these work well.

If any of you guys haven't tried it, Boraxo is probably my number one... Unless its really sticky, thick stuff
You should try WD40 on that stuff. You'd be amazed how it takes the worst right off!

I have a lot of issues with my hands in the winter. The best thing for me is Corn huskers.
Yep, use it and love it. My face breaks out in dry patches in winter, and I use it on my face too. Works!

The orange pump stuff if I have some on hand. In a pinch I use dawn dishwashing liquid with some granular sugar mixed in.

Dawn dish soap and a small scrub brush.
Me too. Lava and Scrub brush also.
A thought for you folks using Gasoline or solvents. Years ago I read an article in Cycle World that was written by an Internal Surgeon. He said he used to do the same thing (didn't we all?) until he started noting the damage that practice was doing to peoples livers and kidneys. He stated that our skin is not fuel proof and anything that goes on our skin will end up in our organs.

Another one for latex gloves. Although they're made in china so who knows what i'm picking up from them.
I went to the gloves after spraying wd-40 in a steel tube then seeing a bunch of pincher bugs staggering out and dying in agony.
Plus the gloves help keep the hands warm, a little.
As for solvents i've heard they not only go into the body... they carry in some of the grease and chemicals the user is trying to wipe off,

I used to use a product called "liquid glove" before doing things like changing oil, it sealed the hands, then washed off with soap & water. Can't find it anymore!!!

Any type of dish washing soap seems to work for me. I have tried lots of different brands of hand cleaner and had good results for the most part. Dollar store dish detergent works good too though and the price is right.
