I used to use laquer thinner until a demo at an auto body shop. This safety scientist type guy told of how bad laquer thinner is, (trust me, it isn't good for a human to absorb it), then did a demo. He had a test that could tell if laguer thinner was on a surface. A volunteer put a tested clean penny in one hand. Three drops of laquer thinner in the other. 4 or 5 seconds later the penny tested positive. It impressed me. I use any ol' hand soap for regular grime, but if I don't get clean I reach under the sink for Fast Orange hand cleaner. It works. GoJo is good too.
The other thing that really works is "Gloves in a Bottle". If I know I'm going into a particularly ugly job I'll use it. It does take a few minutes for it to be applied & dry, but it's absolutly amazing how it keeps grime from getting into your skin.
