Lava soap’s pumiced wonders have been cleaning up greasy and oily hands for decades. In the last few years, though, Lava soap added orange solvents to the mix — creating one tough hand cleaner.
Pumice is a highly vesicular pyroclastic igneous rock. (Or, in real-people-terms: lava rock that has holes in it.) If you’ve never used Lava soap or any other form of pumice, it feels a bit like washing your hands with large rough sand. The pumice cuts through and dislodges oil and grease that other soaps can’t even budge. The orange solvents now boost the power of the pumice, further dissolving and breaking down grime and oil.
After a hard day’s work you can spend a minute or two and completely remove grime, dirt, printer’s ink (ask me how I know this), paint, glue and even gasket cements from your hands.
Street pricing starts around $3 for the 16oz size and $12 for a gallon. If your shop’s like ours, you better go for the gallon size.
