I use Palmolive dish soap on my hands. Maybe you all will think I am nuts, but it works for me. It is real good for getting greasy oily hands clean as well. And the best part, its cheap!

And it keeps your hands soft and young looking too.

I am probably going to get laughed at but I use John Deere Pumice Soap.
Have been using it for years. It seems to work better than GOJO.

I keep a bottle of fast orange without the pumice with me all the time for handwashing. I dig that stuff.

I use Gojo w/ pumice when it's needed. I mostly wear glove througout the day and that keeps my hands in nice shape.

If you find it. i forget what its called it comes in like a bottle that you press much like a public bathroom. The soap is made of orange peels. Works great for grease and oil hope this helps.

For grease I like the plan old white jell from John Deer. Don't rinse it with water just wipe it off with a towel. Two times over like that gets even the worst grease off for me. The trick is two rub some all over your hands and up your arms as high as you will be getting dirty before you start working. It forms a barrier and keeps the grease from soaking into your skin as much.
I also like the kind with pumice from JD. I have tried all of the kinds mentioned here and they all work but I always seem to grab a can of that white jell at JD when ever I'm there.

Oh and as far as dish soap goes Dawn is the best and Prell shampoo for getting it out of your hair.
