    Where I worked would go through a gallon of the pumice hand cleaner every other day. The stuff worked, there's a good reason for that.

      Get some PR88 barrier cream. Rub it in, dries away like it's hardly there, wash your hands spotless clean. Has a strong vanilla smell though so don't buy it if you don't like vanilla.

        If you hate dirty hands, you were probably programmed that way
        by either punishment or propaganda or both. I would think therapy
        would be cheaper than trying to keep your hands clean all the time.
        Probably your mama ruined you.

          Nothing cleans greasy hands like eating a Whopper at Burger King
          and some nice greasy French fries. Hands are much cleaner after
          that meal than before, I promise you..

            Actually YOUR momma ruined me😁.

            A buddy gave me another great tip. Washing machine detergent in the old style powder form. I used it today and it was awesome. It's gritty and abrasive enough to get into the cracks and crevices of my ultra manly dick beaters. So far it's a no. 1 hit BUT I'm going to try dish washer soap next.
            For those that actually LIKE dirty hands all I can say is GROSS. Dirty hands are not some sort of badge. They are an indication of poor and lazy personal hygiene. Y'all can call me a Sally or a Mary all day long but y'all in the, "dirty hands show what a MAN I am" are just too lazy to take decent care of yourselves. Go brush your teef.

              Bless your little OCD heart. I'm happy that you were able to vent about the rest of the grimy rapscallions here who admitted to being less than their mothers had hoped for, shame on those nasty boys!
              The part about your hands being "dick beaters" is probably on a need to know basis though.

              Sorry, couldn't resist.
              All in good fun!

                After clearing a fence line, my hands look like they are tattooed with dirt, full of blisters, and cuts. Half dozen showers, countless times washing hands, still there. Only thing I didn't do is use the GoJo. It's ok, I can show my coworkers I actually did manual labor.

                    Dirty hands?

                    Stopper the sink drain ( I use the laundry tub, but the bathroom sink works too)
                    Start the hot water, and temper it with just enough cold to get your hands in... Fill the sink.

                    Grab the soap of choice. I like KIRKS Hardwater Coconut . Lather up real good while dipping into the hot sink water from time to time. Sing a stanza of "Old McDonald"....

                    Grab the nail brush. You know, that little scrubber with the curved handle/

                    Scrub and dip and lather and scrub until your freeking hands and finger nails are clean. It only takes a few minutes.
                    Your skin should be all red and soft from the activity. Lather up one more time just for yuks. Dip in and swish around

                    Pull the sink plug.

                    Turn on the hot water, temper with cold, rinse your hands well. Clean the ring off the sink! Keep your wife happy ;-)

                    LOOK at your hands! If they are not clean, do it all aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagain. It's NOT rocket surgery!/

                    Dry well, Not just "kinda, sorta: dry. Dry terry cloth dry!

                    Put on lotion if you need to. I usually wait till after supper, 'cause ..wel;l.. dishes need washing, and no sense wasting lotion ...

                      Pretty much guaranteed - kneading bread dough, but you probably won't want to eat the loaf afterwards...

                      If that fails, a disposable electric toothbrush with paste (the vibrating ones, I save them when the bristles start looking as bad as my hair) gets under nails and around the cuticles pretty well.

                            FYI Oak can/will stain your skin purple if you’re handling a lot of fresh cut wood. Used to get it all the time when running oak in the mill.
