If you’ve ever had the pleasure of trying to clean off your hands after working on a car, bike, or other greasy equipment then you know that grease can stick around for days afterwards unless you really scrub down. Real Simple suggests using sugar as a hand degreaser.

Use about a teaspoon of sugar, a little water and then wash your hands as normal. If it’s a stubborn mix of grease and grime, you can also throw in some liquid dish soap. It works great and it’s a lot easier to keep around than a harsh degreaser and less gunky than cooking spray. What’s the best way you’ve found to get grease off your hands? Share it in the comments.
