And clean my hands with normal pump soap with ca spoon of brown sugar.

This. I use vinyl gloves as they last longer than nitrile, although they trap more sweat in.

If I do end up with grubby mitts, washing up liquid and sugar. White or brown, both work.

+1 for washing up liquid, works a treat on oily hands.

Used washing up liquid with sugar mixed in today. It worked quite well.  :)

Read good things about Lidl W5 hand cleaner. Looks like it currently only available in Norn Irn for some reason.
A bit too far to go. ::)
This is good. Available in Finland, too.

I have a bottle of an unknown brand of gritty orange stuff that does the job and all the gritty stuff (plastic micro beads) goes down the drain and feeds the fish!  ::)   :-\
.
                Yes indeed, does the job, but I wonít
Use it anymore because of that👍

Just bought some of this W5 hand cleaner today in Lidl - had a good number of tubs of it on the shelves.

I use Fairy Excel type washing up liquid with a little soap powder instead of the sugar.
A little hot water then a good scrub normally does the trick.
If that lot doesn't work, my hands stay dirty till the skin rubs off  ;D

We used Swarfega Lemon (Yellow) at work for oily hands and by strange coincidence that's what I have in my containers at home.  ::)
It's the one that feels gritty, like someone has put sugar in it.  :y
That was the stuff I used to use when I could use our local internal stores.  But I've run out now, so back on green swarfega,

I've got about 1.5l of orange Swarfega that was a midnight requisition. When that's gone, I'll buy one of the dry paste type, as they make less mess.
