I always used to carry liquid soap and a special one-quart hand sprayer with clean water to wash my hands before lunch and after using the 12 ounce "facilities". Towel hangs over the back of the seat. Wash water required by law in some states. Easier than driving around looking for a running sprinkler head.

What do you guys use to wash your hands?

The cans of Gojo wipes are amazing, really do a great job of getting everything off.

Here is what I use....

Actually, I prefer the lime/lemon scented wipes.

Almost after every application (especially now that it's hot and sweating is a constant)
- One wipe removed
- Start with my forehead, face, etc.
- Hands
- Finish off with my steering wheel, dash board, door handle or whatever.

My goal is to not drop(waste) a dirty still damp towel to the passenger side floor unless I have "maximized every wet towell" until blackened or dry.

I wash my hands before even getting back in the truck at the hose bibb. Gloves and spray boots are washed off on the lawn or labeled usage site for the product in question. Forget about washing gloves or boots on the lawn if Oust or Sahara was being applied.

Most of this stuff really dont bother me much anymore... Still I respect herbicides etc but washing and double glovein is a pita I chew all day and wash before eating and when done than shower. My couz will roll in fertilizer all day long with shorts no gloves etc and I think he now is growing a 3rd eye on his calf:dizzy::hammerhead::confused::nono:

JDL sells Instant Soap and Water, comes in a can, comes out as a foam then rubbed together turns to liquid. It works great IMO

I do more than lawn weed control. So the type of products I am handling makes me that much more cautious. Heard too many accounts of the old timers not respecting what they were handling dying early. I am one of the few applicators in my state. Suspect that there would be more if not for Dursban twitch, Dieldrin dementia or Tersan tumors wiping out the old timers.

I carry an igloo cooler full of water and have a bottle of Dawn handy. I do wish I had a spigot that locked open, though...like the ones on the large coffee urns.

I agree Runner,
We all need a water container where you can open the spigot with your foot or elbow so you can rub your hands together as you wash and rinse.

I used some collapsable water carriers intended for camping to transport water when I had to spray a bare ground site far from running water. The spigot on those is quarter turn to open, allowing me to use the orange hand scrub, then rinse under running water. Those water carriers even get warm if left in the sun, so I am washing with warm water.

I got a sprayland 2.5 or 3 gallon tank. It has places on the side for bolts to go in. Push or pull water spicket on the bottom. It has the round twist on lid with the breather in the middle. My bro uses an igloo cooler. We carry little gojo's with.

We carry a roll of paper towels in every truck. Summer = wiping off sweat. Winter (snow plowing) = blowing our noses. Do a search on hand/face soap -- you will see an LD-50 toxicity report on each one. my 2 cents

I thought about this before, and I think you may have just influenced me to do this, now.
