Oh gosh curlysue – I’m in the same boat. My guy is a welder and no matter how much he scrubs his hands they never look, well, perfectly clean. I don’t know what to do, I’ve broached the subject of him getting a manicure a few times and he has flat out refused….sigh….I think I’m gonna have to bribe him to at least let me give him an at-home manicure so they don’t look so bad.

He can get stains off with either GOJO or small amounts of paint thinner.

But he can actually completely avoid stains by using vaseline on his hands before working on greasy stuff!!  Or if that’s too greasy, surgical gloves will do the trick…

I never thought of GOJO – thanks for that idea Mr Bee!

Sure thing – but make sure to mention the Vaseline trick.  It works WONDERS!!!

I wouldn’t worry about it too much. Your photographer will edit his hands to make them look perfect. I suggest that he should go for a manicure (unless he finds that too feminine) a couple days before the wedding.

You could also try Lava brand soap. Personally, I use GOJO anytime I have to get under the car, but I have guy friends that prefer Lava.
