View Full Version : Hand Soap

Greetings. Can anyone recommend a good hand soap (bar or liquid)? I'm currently using lavender ivory, which I find actually less drying than the Jergan's clean and clear soap that I was previously using. My main issue with hand soap is that it dries out my hands (especially in the winter), and I often end up having to use moisturizer after washing my hands.
Thanks in advance for the recommendations.

I use Dr. Bronner's Peppermint soap year round as my hand soap.

Method hand soap. buy a bag online and fill your own soap dispenser. a little squirt cleans the hands well and leaves them soft. the smell is there while you wash, not once you rinse it off.

you can find the method soap with dispenser at many stores like Target and Whole Foods. You can get the Dr. Bonners at Whole Foods too.

I keep a bar of Yardley's by the sink. Cheap, real soap, made with tallow, cleans well and moisturizes the skin.
Choose Lavender, Almond/oatmeal, English rose, Aloe/cucumber and Sandalwood. Check your nearest CVS or walgreen's.
Of course, the other options is a cake of shaving soap. Lots of folks use shaving soaps in the sink and the shower.

My favorite hand soap is Nancy Boy signature scent. Cleans wonderfully and is by far the strongest smelling soap I think I've come across.

I have always liked bath and body works foaming hand soap. Although i only buy it when they have a sale.

I now use C&E La Source Moisturising Soap with Shea Butter after geeting some 'samples' from a hotel :001_rolle

Sorry guys but its summertime and on the weekend I'm usually working on one of the grown kids toys. I have not had a lot of success on motor oil and axle grease with the soaps y'all listed. I did give up the Lava and went to Dawn Liquid used with one of those sponge scrubber things followed by a little Corn Huskers.
During the week just around the house my wife has Yardley's at the sinks and it works well, as Spatterdash mentioned. I prefer a bar to the liquids as I have a ring on each hand and just don't like the feel of the liquid soap under my rings. I keep a bar of the Every Man Jack soap (orange) by my sink in the bathroom and I think it works well on my hands.
My wife, and one of my son's, has extremely dry skin and hasn't found anything to replace lots of hand cream on cold dry days in the winter.

Something that deeply moisturizes but will cut motor oil and axle grease?
I'd double up on it, boss.
Get yourself a strong soap for industrial level cleaning, whatever gets the job done. Put it side by side with an olive oil soap. Use one, then the other, during the same visit to the sink.
They say olive oil penetrates deeper than almost any other moisturizer.
Use the search feature for Olive soap. Oil is too short a word. Read some reviews and don't hold back. Get the best out there for those windy, dry winters we get here in the Midwest.
