Clean up

PostAuthor: Cusstout 1100 » Sat Apr 04, 2020 7:36 pm

So...maybe you've been wrenching, cleaning parts and stuff, or maybe you've been doing some wet-sanding on the aluminum rims. And you're done for the day, time to wash up. And then you remember; it's "date night" or some other rare occasion that would require nice clean hands....and fingernails. The hand cleaner's done it's job on the skin, but those nails are less than impeccable, matter of fact they're right full of black stuff. :ops: Sure to turn up noses this evening. You try the "nail brush" and that little scraper thing on the nail clippers even though you know that's a futile exercise. And then in a moment of inspiration driven by the panic of the situation, you go into the laundry room and grab the "Shout" stain remover/pre-cleaner. You spray a bit on the ends of all the offending fingers and go to work with that useless brush again. And look ma!! clean nails.

I doubt your manicurist would approve, but it worked for me. :bg:

Ha ! My wife never noticed I shaved my beard, doubt she’d notice a little grime under the nails :;:

Ha-hah ! My best shot at physical contact (without complaint) is right after I shave.

Thanks for the tip. It's worth a try...
