    Here is a tip of my uncle’s for cleaning greasy hands after working on machinery.

    Thoroughly mix two parts mealie meal to one part washing machine powder. Put this mix into a glass jar with fairly big holes in the lid. When you need to wash, sprinkle the powder liberally on to your hands, mix with a little water to make a paste, rub vigorously, then rinse off.

    Optional: follow up with aqueous cream as a moisturiser.
