    Vehicle : Mk1 renault scenic... I know I know but it drives

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.6 16v

    Year : 2003

    Default Home made hand cleaner

    Just thought pass on a tip to everyone. If you ever run out of hand cleaner.

    Or just don't do jobs often enough to warrant buying some.

    Well the tip is get hand full of suger ( just standard sugar you stick in your coffee) then poor a good hand full of washing up liquid over.

    Then rub hands together.
    And hey presto home made hand cleaner.

    It does a gleaming job.

    Hope it's usefull for someone

    Even better if you use washing powder instead of sugar

    Will try washing powder next time.

    I imagin that's a bit harsh on the hands though?

    Vehicle : 2007 1.9cdti sri 150 estate

    sugar works as a scrubbing agent like they put in swarfega type stuff i would think.

    washing powder can make me itch like mad if clothes arent washed properly by the machine so i would be a bit reluctant to use it but if you dont have excema i can see it working.

    If anybody remembers VIM, that was a great hand cleaner. It was good because it practically took the outer layer of skin off lol

    If you have really grubby hands you can add a drop of bleach. Yes bleach, only a tiny drop and make sure you rinse off very thoroughly but it does do a good job. Also not wise to use it regularly, or on hands with open cuts. I've only ever done it 5 or 6 times in my life but it does do a good job.

    one I learned from me dad when i was a kid-

    for ingrained oil use butter/marge with the sugar it mixes with the oil and breaks it down quicker than soap- then when its all loosened add some soap to wash it all off ;-)

    Washing powder is great for removing oily marks off your drive! Sprinkle it over the oil stain and dampen it, then just leave it.

    We always had old cars when I was a kid.
