Depending on how much i tinker w/ my bike, i can end up washing my hands like 10 times. Does anyone know of a tough hand cleaner that might be nice (moisturizing) to a lady's hands?

Try using disposable gloves, latex or PVC. Hands get sweaty if it's warm but it saves getting grime ingrained in your skin. Or you could try using a barrier cream as we used to do when I was an engineer.

Here's my trick - laundry detergent. No joke, it's the best hand degreaser/cleaner I've ever used. And it doesn't tear your hands up too much.

Any autoparts or large box store should have "industrial" hand cleaners. I use Gojo, a citrus-based cleaner that contains "aloe and jojoba oil" to keep it from drying my hands. I've used laundry detergent, which works well but is harsh, and also dishwashing soap, but I prefer the handcleaners. Get the stuff with "pumice" or other grit in it--I find it helps.

Yup. Gojo, followed by hand lotion.

Agree if you are working on a m/c or a cage the hands become dirty.  Also in working on taking a h/gun apart, cleaning & lube it along with cleaning the rifleing to put it all back together again----------hands become dirty & since I am doing so much of this sitting down I use an old, but clean T-shirt on my lap.

So the other reason for having a clean rag when working on the m/c.



Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.
