Perfect for use in auto shops, factories, fishing boats, or when cleaning up after painting. They dissolve and wash away quickly, so you don't have to spend an age trying to scrub your hands clean.

They aren’t just for industrial use – they are also great for use around the house. If you are a gardener you will appreciate the effortless, no mess way they clean your hands once the digging and sweating is done.

Unlike chemical based liquids, powdered hand soap is gentle enough for everyday use and won’t leave a nasty residual smell.

One great feature is that powdered hand soap is super easy to store and use. It's lightweight and compact, meaning you can easily store it in a tool or utility box. Plus, all you need is water to make it work, so there's nothing to spill or waste like with liquid soaps and no residual build up on sinks and other surfaces.

Finally, powdered hand soap is a cost-effective way to ensure your hands are clean, sanitary, and grime-free. A single container can last you a long time and works out cheaper than just about any other hand cleaner.

So, why not save yourself from the hassle of dealing with messy liquids and slippery bars and give powdered hand soap a try? Your hands will thank you for it!
