    And dont forget the teflon lube after your dry! :D
  • I use swarfega with grit from my childs sandpit for a general all over clean and exfoliate. Then just to finish off I use a solution of 3 parts olbas oil to 1 part lime juice on mucous membranes.

    This really takes your mind of the muscle ache.

    lynx is for teenage boys who don't know any better.

    carbolic soap and a good scrubbing brush is what you need....

    to get rid of grease and oil from hands....just add a bit of salt or sugar to whatever washing up liquid you can find and scrub away.

    swarfega? sintered brake pads do the job more thoroughly, I find. While we're on the subject, GT85 is far more effective than cod liver oil for joints

    Original Source stuff is nice, I like the mint and the lime, both very pleasant!

    Petrol will wash anything away. Give it a try.

    I want to post a thread topic, oh what can I post?

    I use Original Source stuff, coz I like the smell init!

    If you're looking for the ultimate in mud removal you need to couple it with one of those 'body polisher' things you get in boots. Shift even the weird orange mud at Cwmcarn than stains skin.
