Hand Cleaner

So what do you use to clean paint, adheasives, resins, and all the other junk off your hands?

I know the usual thinner but that can't be good for you, although i do use it sometimes.

Its wierd how the older i get the more i worry about stuff killing me... kinda wish I was 17 and immortal again. :ninja: Heck I even have started wearing gloves occasionally.

Before I get down and dirty in the garage or shop I like to wipe my clean hands down with "Invisible Glove", when done I can just go over to the sink and wash away the grime cause it don't stick to your hands..........

The "Invisible Glove" does work well....When you put it on your hands...your hands feel like your hands...:
Paint-safe makes a good handcleaner to get paint and such off your paws...Laquer thinner is a bit hard on the skin, especially if you're a single guy..:roflmao:

The Invisible Glove sounds intresting. I've always used gasoline to get some of the paint off, or if it isn't on too bad, just some GoJo w/ pumice can get it off as well. Need a brush of some sort to help.

be carefull washing parts or your hands in gasoline... i had a friend that did that untill (they think) static electicity lit off a bowl of gas about the size of a cool whip tub he was using to clean up a old holley carb, it burnt is face and hands up pretty bad but what killed him was a infection from the burns he got in his lungs or wind pipe or something... it was a closed casket funeral



i have seen that invisible glove stuff, but haven't used it because i figured it would leave my hands feeling waxy or slippery, I will give it a try now

Once it's on your hands and has dried, you don't even notice it. It's like a glove with out the glove....

Just use caution as these things work to prevent your hands from getting soiled, however they may leave a residue behind that prevents the paint from adhering. Chris

Touching any panel that is worked on even with clean hands without anything on em- WILL CONTAMINATE the panel. Even if you come straight from the sink while drying hands, touching a panel with bare hands leaves our natural hand oils on the surface, ready to wreck havoc on our work.... Same goes for hands with gloves or even this invisible glove product.... :shrug: :RTFM:

touching a panel in my shop that I'm getting ready to laydown a primer/paint product on will get you a qwick exit out of shop, if your lucky, I won't kick you in your tuckus on the way out....... :rules:
