Anything new in hand cleaners

Here is a new one I got from gemplers you start by rubbing it on hands no water then rinse it off. I like that it comes out of can easily unlike the orange stuff.

Ive tried most of those ..they're okay..
For the last 15 years all I've used is DAWN dishsoap..it works..
Its the same stuff they cleanup all the wildlife with after an oil spill..

When I worked on charter boats, Dawn was all they used because it cut oils and grease better than any other soap.

When I work as a mechanic I usually use brake cleaner to clean up at the end of the day and then use some dawn soap

I don't even splurge on a name brand like Dawn, that stuff's way expensive, paying for the name...
Figure the price per ounce, I'm looking at some Dawn at Walmart, $2.50 for 24 ounces, that's near 11 cents an ounce!
Plenty of aftermarket generic dishwashing soap costs a lot less, a good starting price is 4 cents an ounce.
That and water...

A rag with a dab of Kerosene / Gasoline to get serious crud off.

Goop Cherry flavor. Expensive, but smells soooo nice. Works remarkably well. Cleaning your hands with brake cleaner? I must say, I've never thought of that.
