    I just wear tight, heavy-duty nitrile gloves when I'm on the machine.

    I have used several different kinds over the years, and of course everybody has their own preference. The best I have ever used is Phil Wood Hand Cleaner. It’s made from wood pulp, but it does cost a little on the high side.

    As this has been covered before.....I posted then, that I have used a cleaner
    called "Tar Kelp".
    https://www.harborfreight.com/16-oz-hand-soap-orange-scent-98166.html?cid=paid_google_pla_main_newproducts_hi ghersales_lessthan$10_98166&gclid=Cj0KCQiApILhBRD1 ARIsAOXWTzvDb01HM6Cgxmx26u9kyDN7r1r-YgVVIEyAo_tOz_d3f1yyITOVPjUaAr0KEALw_wcB

    But the stuff I got wasn't from HF and wasn't orange scented, just cardboard smelling.

    Lava soap and liquid Dawn are the usual chemical needs...all while being scrubbed and worked-in with those plastic surgical nail cleaner brushes I buy by the bag full at Lee Valley. They work in under the fingernails and other tough places like stink...

    If you think dish soaps good try Manista if you can get it over there, far more effective, yet still not harsh like some of the hand cleaners can be. Trust me after switching to it the girlfriend really commented about me softer hands. Before that i use to use DEB Lime but it really dried my skin out.

    My all time favorite use to come from a company called LITHO supplies and was there own product, it had real pumice ground up as sand in it, ultra effective with out being sharp - scratchy and way better than plastic granules in most of the modern stuff. That would also remove anything and still not leave your hands de-greaser dry like some cleaners do.

    Issue with the hand cleaners that don't dry - calcify your skin is you sure as fuck get a lot more splinters!

    Dawn direct foam ... I used Dawn for years and then switched to the foam in that it rinses off easier. If I get really nasty I use motor oil followed by Dawn foam ...

    I generally buy Boraxo and mix it with Dawn or what ever dish soap I have handy. Plus a scrub rush. I hate Go-go abrasive orange smell hand cleaner as it gives me a rash. I have been wearing those handy rubber gloves more and more now that they are easy to buy. I have also been buying Goop non abrasive hand cleaner for years to clean surface plates. It works the best and it is usually under $2.00 a 2 pound tub at Walmart. Rub it into a granite plate with your hands and wipe it off with white paper towels and then cotton until the towel stays white.

    I have been using Bear Paw Hand Cleaner for the past few years,
    not found anything yet that cleans as well after working on ancient Diesels.
    Water activated, I have a dispenser mounted by the shop sink.

    Stoko Kresto is the best I ever tried (and I tried many hand cleaners until I found it).

    I buy Fast Orange for home use, but the PK Soyl commercial stuff is far and away the best hand cleaner I have run into.

    I use a product called "one punch" from Kimball Midwest. Need very little to get clean, works great, helper/employees don't whine.
    They also sell some "grime away wipes" that have a citrus cleaner. They work better than other wipes I've tried, even takes Permatex #2 off my hands easily without taking skin.

    Interesting on the stoko, never heard of it. Just might try it to see how it does. The presses at work have a mixture of aluminum (from sliding molds off them) silicone, and grease that is very hard to get off. That's my current benchmark lol.

    One question:
    Do you use your heavy duty cleaners more than once a day ?

    IE, if you wash up really good for lunch, do you find the clean up at the end
    of the day harder ?

    Or do you "pre-treat" before going in ?

    I like the GOJO Scrubbing Towels. Started out in the truck but now I keep them in the shop too. The grease and goo comes right off on the towel and you throw it away. One of my favorite products. http://gojo.com/en/Product/6396-06

    Boraxo 20 Mule team. Works good enough for me and doesn't hose my hands.

    I usually use the orange shit for normal cleaning. I only break out the hard stuff when I got a lot of crap on them. The supro max never fails me, it even takes off high spot blue to an extent.
