nealtw- would the soap I posted remove most of it?

Not sure, but time is on your side the oil in the skin will remove most anything in a couple days.

K thanks. Ill try out the stuff I was looking at because I need an aggressive hand soap anyways I bet it will do some damage to the stuff and the rest will come of naturally like you said. I was just curious if there was a soap specifically made to remove oil based products.

When I was a kid, and got oil-based paint on my hands, my father would reach for the turpentine. But my mother would cut him off and use a small amount of olive oil on a rag and voila. Of course I wouldn't use extra virgin for hand cleaning, and I'm not sure if other food oils would work as well. but you might experiment a little.

Try Fels-Naptha and then wash your hands with regular soap and then hand lotion if you like soft hands.
