Grease and oil make cleaning hands after a mechanical project a challenge. This guide is about homemade mechanic's hand cleaner.
I'm posting a simple, economical, and very effective formula for mechanic's hand cleaner.
Mix about a tablespoon of washing up liquid, (or what Americans call "dish soap"), such as "Dawn", and a tablespoon of corn meal, or grits". Add just enough water to make it "useable". Exact proportions are not crucial.
Smashing good results. :O)
Does anyone know how to make the GOOP mechanics use to clean their hands with?

To the man from South Africa -- please be more specific about quantities of each ingredient. Your formula is close to one used where I worked years ago. They used water, oxalic acid, and kerosene. Would you or anyone know the portions/quantities of each, and the mixing procedure? This was a top-grade hand soap for cleaning grease, carbon oil stains and tar, and it was water soluble.
How can I make hand cleaner, the grit type for grease and grime? I want to make it for resale purposes.
