Clean Hands

Nitrile Medical gloves are perfect when working on a bike. They give you the ability to work with small parts without fumbling about like with large, mechanic type gloves, they are watergreasedirt proof, and keep your clean up to a minimum. If you dont care for the gloved approach, you can try scratching your nails on a bar of soap prior to beginning your work. this will keep dirt from getting under your fingernails making them easier to clean when you are finished.
