And isn't YouTube the best place to find out Audrey! Keep away from leaf-litter too, it rots down and gets pulvarised by trafic to make a very slippery slime.

Anyone know anything good for taking off bike oil stains from hands without taking off half the skin. I have excema so can't just scrub my hands like a maniac, It will cause too much dry skin.

Thanks in advance!

Loosening the grip of the black grime can be half the trick Audrey. I use hand cleaner that Lidl sells which I suspect may have one of those ionic sufactant components that work like magic but may be very harsh if your skin is sensitive.

Tips:
If you can survive exposure to WD40 it really is fantastic at lifting the oil-based grime out of your skin and it is quite easily washed off with common or garden soap taking the grime with it. If you are a bit sensitive to WD40 then maybe try baby oil to lift the grime and then ordinary soap afterwards to take the baby oil off your hands.

Hope this helps

Brilliant will stock up! Still looking at the black stains on my hand from removing my own wheel last night for turbo.
Still pretty impressed that I know how to do that now.. :)

And I probably should clean my bike!
