Lava soap comes in bar form and has been a top choice for messy-job enthusiasts for over 100 years. The bar also features pumice scrubbing particles—seeing a trend here?—and is made by the same company that produces WD-40. (Sadly, it won't heal any squeaky knuckles.)

Fingernail Scrub Brush

Washing your hands with even the grittiest soap won't remove all of the grime, so using a fingernail brush like this one is a great idea. It excels at removing dirt and gunk from around your fingernails, so people won't be grossed out the next time you snag a square of Jell-O during Sunday dinner.

Bloody Knuckles Hand Repair Balm

$13.99

Shop Now

This hand repair balm from Duke Cannon might have a name that resonates with mechanics best. Originally designed for fighters in the ring, the balm soothes and heals hands without leaving behind a greasy residue. But with all the inadvertent punching under the hood caused by stuck bolts, they oughta put a picture of a mechanic on the jar. We fight, too.
