I knew someone who used ''Gumption'' terrible stuff ,leaves your hands dry. He also used that stuff that the dry cleaners use carbon teterachloride .....I think he is no longer around!
I like goanna oil but you have to catch one first.

Default Hand Cleaner (Cheap).

Forget all the big name industrial hand cleaners. Sure they work but I found that with continuous use my skin dried to the point of cracking and bleeding.
Go to your local supermart and buy a pump bottle of hand wash. Some will claim to be anti-bacterial but it's all the same. Wet your hands, put a shot on them, rub around and rinse. Reasonably kind to skin, quite cheap, and just buy the cheap re-fill packs for your pump bottle.
I use it for shower and shampoo as well and works as well as any expensive brew and I can't tell the difference. Regards,
Combustor.

Hello all
I must be tighter then you Combustor. I use the 'el-cheapo' dish washing liquid from Aldi and it's brilliant at taking the muck off your hands.
I do have the 20l sized drum of that pink coloured industrial cleaner in the shed but I reckon the dishwashing liquid does just a good a job, if not better. I'm thinking seriously of sending the industrial cleaner to the weekly auction we have here simply to free up some shed space.
