I do so little car repair (or other grease-dirty work) any more that any jelled hand cleaner I get turns liquidy – so, messy and not very useful – way before I use it up. I discovered that the spray-foam sneaker cleaner – available at the myriad “footwear” stores in shopping malls – works great. And it is even good for cleaning sneakers.
(My late Dad also taught me that I could use motor oil to dissolve the grease on my hands, then plain soap to take away the oil. But oil doesn’t work on all the kinds of dirt, and I have the sneaker cleaner by the laundry sink anyhow.)
