  • Fast Orange gel with pumice

    On the recommendation of A.K. Boomer I ordered some of the Fast Orange gel with pumice. He swore by how well it worked. I have to agree. So far it seems to work incredibly well.

        I have been using it for years!
        I don’t use I’d fast enough so it is not creamy but still works!

            I don't like the "left-over feel" in/on my hands and have used fast Orange for years, so I do a quick spray with Windex and wipe...Wow, like coming out of the shower !

                For me, one of the fastest (and cheapest) hand cleaners for removing all kinds of grime including heavy grease and embedded metal fines is Dawn dish soap scrubbed with a kitchen type Scotchbrite pad. I keep a dispenser on the utility sink and one shot with warm water to spread around a bit, then a once over with the pad. Clean as original and no particular odor that I notice. A friend does not use this because it removes too much skin oil for him. Maybe I'm just not doing enough....

                BTW, did you know that you can't wash your hands?

                ....wait for it......

                They wash each other.

                    HAHAHA. Yes I was, but it's clean now.

                    There's no doubt in my mind that some have tried...

                      If I get really greasy, a pre wash with WD40 is a good start.

                        We used Dawn when we were diving in the ocean. When we would come out of the water we would wash down with Dawn and then jump back in the ocean, climb out and wipe down with a towel. For some reason the salt would come off and you felt like you had a shower in fresh water.

                          I've been using the various pumice hand cleaners forever. I hadn't realized you're supposed to apply it and scrub before wetting your hands for best effect with certain brands, namely the fast orange stuff. Someone at work pointed it out recently and it made the stuff 10x better.

                          I have a jug of fast orange and a jug of gojo orange side by side at the shop sink at work. I use the fast orange.

                          I have gojo cherry gel in the wall dispenser at home. It doesn't seem to work as well as I recall, especially compared to the classic fast orange.

                          I tried some stuff with walnut shells (shellshock?) recently and want to get it for home but can't remember the specific brand. I guess it was Zep. I dunno where to buy a small pump bottle to try it out to confirm it's the correct stuff before I buy a new dispenser...

                            I used fast orange to do the first pass cleaning on a really dirty surface plate I acquired for work recently. That worked awesome

                              One of the fitters in work was so mean he used the supplied hand cleaner ( swarfega green and swarfega orange, I think it had gritty bits of walnut shell in) in the shower once a day, head to toe! No shampoo or shower gel, he swore it made his hair shine and cured the head lice he caught off his kids from school.
                              no amount of explanation could dissuade him from this practice, he even took a tub home, his plan was to persuade his wife to share in the practice saving the money spent on shower gel, fortunately she wasn’t having any of it,
