LowSpeedLife,

Nice suggestion, I'll have to try that.  I generally use Dawn dish liquid and some sand.  Don't use to much in the washing machine,  makes suds all over.  It will surelly get who ever did not do it up set.   ::)

I squirt my gunked up hands with WD-40, rub them together, and wipe off with a towel, repeat if needed, then hand soap in the kitchen sink gets the WD-40.

I may try this with Marvel Mystery Oil - for some reason I love the smell of it.

Just like auto trans fluid, it acts like solvent, and floats the gunk away.

Yet another tip - a cleanser like Bon Ami, plus a bit of dish soap works wonders with hands.  You can use Comet or other chlorinated cleansers too, but the chlorine stinks, though it all washes off.   :)
