    Found this at Tractor Supply today. It was all we used when we were dirty when I worked with my Dad when I was a little yonker. If this didn’t clean it off your hands then it was gasoline.

    I’ve never seen the stuff! I used to use the Lava soap/Orange whatever it was…now just use regular soap or acetone if necessary. Gasoline leaves a residue doesn’t it?

    One garage I worked at when young had a shaker can of Comet at the sink. It stings all the little cuts you get in your hands when working on cars, but got your hands clean.

    I have a pump jug of some sort of orange and pumice stuff now that I got at tsc.

    I also have never seen that Kevin, we always have used

    Permatex 25108 Fast Orange Pumice Lotion Hand Cleaner

    It is made by the same company though.

    I always preferred that to the orange stuff.

    Thanks for the reminder to get some Orange cleaner. The company I work for doesn’t have any and I’ve been missing it. Maybe I can find single use packs for on site this year so I don’t have to lug in a big bottle.

    That stuff is also good for cleaning stains in concrete.

    That stuff works a lot better than the orange pumice I have.
    I have a can of something like what you have. It sure cuts grease better than the orange.

    The good stuff back in the day for us was called ‘Goop’, it was kind of a white gel substance that came in a can. Worked best on dry hands and could be used completely waterless, although I preferred to wash it off. smelled good too.

    Then my company went to a product called Boraxo, it was a white powder that felt like sand and definitely needed water.

    Now I use a product called WH-77, it’s a thick green liquid that is best used on dry hands then rinse with water. Best hand cleaner I’ve ever seen

    Yah i used goop for a while but have since switched to the orange stuff with the pumice.

    try putting that stuff in one of these humangear gotoobs

    I have them and they work great for hand cream and stuff. I even had one filled with hot sauce lol.

    I always used the Orange/pumice pump but recently found another one that is red and works real well to get all the grease of your hands.

    Can’t say I ever used the Permatex stuff aside from making gaskets.

    I use GoJo myself with a wall dispenser so you don’t have to scoop it out of the can.

    We use gojo at work too. I like the grainy stuff better than the smooth

    Yeah, memories, for sure. I think I have used them all at one time or another. Goop is my favourite of all of them. Rub it in and wipe off with a clean rag.

    It must be a regional thing with the availability. @Skillman and @Sparky603 are northeast like me.
    I’ve used most of the hand cleaners on the shelf at one time or another. Orange with grit is the only thing I’ve found that takes off pipe flux any good.

    I used to use that old style stuff, had little abrasive inside,
    And also the stuff Jim mentioned, the old comet in a can when I was an apprentice at the esso station,

    The first time I tried the stuff we use here, it’s called PR -88 it’s a invisible glove, it works great, the only problem is I keep forgetting to apply it lol

    My dad still has a can of the permatex hand cleaner in his garage; I have a can of that and a pump bottle of gojo. The gojo is also great for getting oil stains out of clothes.

    Yeah Permatex and Gojo (Orange) for me. I have a Gojo pump/bottle in every room at this point I think. I should just run lines of it through the house.
