I was scrubbing some dirt from my knuckles when I wondered what you guys use to clean up.
Do you use bar soap? Liquid? Foam?
Do you use a pumice-based cleaner? One with crushed-up walnut shells?
A hand scrubber?
Those moisturizer soaps that make your hands feel slimy?
Whatever is in the bathroom or at the wash-up sink?
Does it have any kind of scent, such as cherry cough drops?
I’ve tried a few different industrial hand cleaners, and even a frou-frou salt-based scrub. So far, I think I like the walnut shell-based soap most of all, although it’s just more of a scrub than a soap.
I’ve found that dish soap works quite well, too, at least for cutting through oil and grease.
As for brushes, I use a surgical-style brush from Lee Valley (which I also use on my kids’ hands), and also a brush I bought for maybe $2-4 at an auto parts store once. I also once got a usable brush with a large container of Gojo, but I lost it ages ago.
Or, do you always wear disposable gloves, which helps to cut down on how much attention must be paid to hand-washing?
So, what do you use to wash your hands?
