How to Remove Bike Grease and Grime From Your Hands

If you are a bicycle mechanic, or just like to work on your own bike, you know how tough it can be to get bike grease and oil off your hands. You can wash your hands countless times and these stains can linger for a long time, especially around your fingernails. Luckily, Tub O’ Towels heavy duty cycling wipes can help. Our durable cycling wipes were actually created as skin wipes, and it was only later that we discovered how effective they are on all types of surfaces.

The Hard Way to Get Grease off Hands

The internet is packed with suggestions for getting bike and engine grease off hands. Some work better than others, but all have loyal supporters. Here are some common recommendations:

  • Scrub hands with WD-40.
  • Make a paste of sugar and liquid dish soap. Scrub vigorously before washing as normal.
  • Douse hands in chain cleaner before washing.
  • Scrub with a hand cleaner containing pumice.
  • Use a water-optional citrus-based cleanser.
  • Scrub with instant coffee before washing.
  • Create a hand scrub with powdered laundry detergent and olive oil.

The Quick and Easy Way to Get Grease off Hands

Although the above methods work fairly well, they tend to require intense scrubbing. They also use products that can be drying and damaging to the skin, and some are filled with chemicals that would be dangerous to ingest.

They are designed to remove bike grease and other tough stains from hands in a safe, gentle way.

  • Grab a heavy duty Tub O’ Towels cycling wipe.
