    make your own hand cleaner!

    Ok so its make your own "swarf**a" but the ***le looks better.
    Get some ecover "washing up liquid", get some kerosene/paraffin.

    Put some washing up liquid in a bowl then add some kerosene, it will become "gelatinous " very quickly .
    For most jobs its as effective as the branded product and by varying the concentrations you can make it as jellylike or liquid as you like.

    Put into a old tub and keep in the back of your car/van!
    At the end of the day wash your hands at the back of your van! so nice clean hands go onto your steering wheel.

    don't know if would fancy washing my hands with that...

    extract taken from wiki...

    ToxicityIngestion of kerosene is harmful or fatal. Kerosene should never be used to get rid of hair lice as it can cause burns and serious illness. A kerosene shampoo can even be fatal if fumes are inhaled.[26][27]

    Even to this day, if i have very dirty hands, esp if oil is involved, i will get some washing powder in my hand, squirt on some washing up liquid, and wash my hands with that!. Not sure it would be good for your hands doing it regular, but works pretty well, an leaves hands smelling nice, ha!, :)
