Anyone working on Ts will get their hands black. over many years I have tried all sort of hand cleaners and non worked real good including GO-JO. Recently Bill Heidenreich of TT fame brought me a jar of PINERITE hand cleaner. The ingredients are Borax, Sodium Soap, with 1 % Lanolin and Pine tree Powder. It is the only hand cleaner that truly get my hands clean and white. It is the best hand cleaner you'll ever use Guaranteed. Visit the website www.millcreekweb.com
I forgot to say my bottle of PINERITE was getting low so I fired up my T and drove out to Johnson's Truck Stop on 1-15 to get another bottle. When someone is at my shop working and I invite them into the house for a coffee break I let them try some and they are all amazed. No matter how black their hands are after using some PINERITE they are perfectly white. It even takes off Permatex number two and everyone knows how hard that is to get off.
Thanks Dave, I just ordered some direct.
I'll try some too. I found that the only thing that ever got my hands really clean was professional window cleaning - having my hands wet in a concoction of Dawn and Ammonia all day would get everything, even the junk under my fingernails. If this works I'll be thrilled (so will my wife!)
I've never seen it around here but it's available on Amazon for 7.70 plus about 4.00 shipping. Makes it a little pricey but I ordered just to try it out.
I just ordered some Pine Soap. I have been using this http://www.bearpawhandcleaner.com/ for the last two years, and I am happy with it, but always looking for ways to get the crud out of my skin.
I have found that using a Gardeners Balm prior to doing any kind of mechanical handiwork is the best.
Prevention not treatment!
On the other hand, actually both hands, coming in the house and doing the dishes works quite well
I use nitrile gloves, so my hands never get dirty. I could use some balm on the arms sometimes, however.
I kept trying to use gloves. But, I end up tearing them and getting half nasty anyway - at which point I would take them off and throw them across garage. I have since given up.
When wife catches me washing the dishes she asks: "Been working on your cars again?".
Dave Huson must have gone a long way to get his Pinerite. Unless there is another I-15, the highway I know goes up through Utah and north to the Canadian border.
How does Pinerite work on sensitive skin? My fingertips crack open and peel off and most hand cleaners will just make the condition worse. The car grease, however, seems to soothe my skin!
Please tell me what you use this for!
Fred...just what it says ! Haha
I found the best way to get the black off your hands it to from a bunch of hamburger patties.
That's what I use on my hands, and I've never been close enough to a cow to milk it. It does wonders on the hands.
More likely I-25, Norm....
Are you positive that it is for hands?
Your right and so is Dick Lodge, Johnson's corner is on I-25. Its the largest truck stop in Northern Colorado and is one of the best places to get Cinnamon Roles. Sometimes another Ter and I will drive to Johnson's Corner just for coffee and roles. You can park your T in front of huge windows so you can watch them.
Usually, if I can't get my hands perfectly clean, I just make meatloaf. Seems to do the job.
My wife will never order meatloaf in a restaurant. Now I'm starting to understand her thinking,........hmmmmmm,.......
