Here's a great tip for all you mechanics out there who hate having to deal with greasy hands.

The thing about working with grease is that it seeps in the creases of your hands and under you nails, and the resulting smell can sometime stick around for days on end. While some have suggested using cooking spray, this can sometimes leave an even oilier mess.

Instead of washing your hands raw with special soap, Real Simple suggests adding a teaspoon of sugar to water with liquid dish soap and washing your hands like normal.
