wash hands

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.

Seriously I try to wash my hands several times per day at customers homes.

Here is what I use....

http://www.walgreens.com/store/c/wet...d18607-product

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

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.
