It is a strong hand cleaner that is used to remove grease and grime from hands. It is used in the automotive industry but is available for home use also. It is specifically used on hands because it has some caustic properties that would damage eyes, mouth and other soft tissues.

i have used a small amount of bleach with fast orange hand cleaner (the hand cleaner that is used when working on cars etc) . You wipe it up with the bleach then put the hand cleaner on the rug(not a lot) and scrub that. Not only is the stain gone but the smell as well. It will smell orange for a few days

Pumice has remarkable abrasive qualities that allow it to be used in many places. We see it used as a dental abrasive, an abrasive hand soap ingredient, an ingredient in polish, and a cosmetic skin abrasive. Pumice is also used commercially in several ways in construction. It can be used in landscaping and as a soil conditioner. We also find it used in insulation and as a additive to concrete.Pumice is also really light and soft i use it for pillows

PUMICE. Pumice is created by volcanic activity. It looks different from other rocks and even feels light when you hold it in your hand, but it's a genuine rock.
