Soap...

Ok. This may be a dumb question but how do you clean your hands before you put them in your tank? I worry about the residue from soap so I thought I'd ask and find out what other people use. Thanks for your input!

I wash up to mid-arm with Dawn then rinse for a long time.

Being female in Colorado (even when it snows it's dry) I wear lotion all the time. I don't want that getting into my tanks.

I use soap too, the whole soap thing is kinda over rated, just rinse really well to make sure there's no residue and rock on with it.

Ok good. That's what I do too. Just rinse really well. Thanks to both of you for responding. Now I don't have to wonder about it
