Natural Gardener & Mechanic's
Hand Cleaner Recipe

Makes one 4 oz. jar


This natural gardener and mechanic's hand cleaner recipe makes a thick, scoop-and use-product. It contains a very fine abrasive (pumice) to help the natural citrus oils dissolve and remove heavy grease and grime, while moisturizing at the same time. A wonderful natural alternative to the commercial orange "Gojo" type hand cleaners commonly used by mechanics, gardeners, and others who need a heavy duty hand cleaner.
½ Cup        Cream Soap Base (Less a Tbsp.)
2 tsp          D-Limonene (Citrus grease cutter)
1 – 2 tbsp   Fine Pumice (Exfoliant - add as desired)
1/4 tsp       Red Clay (Natural detoxifier) 
1/8  tsp      Citricidal Grapefruit Seed Extract (Natural preservative, antibacterial, antimicrobial, anti-fungal)


1. Mix all ingredients together into a measuring cup and stir to combine.
2. Spoon into a cosmetic jar.
