Another vote for Avon Skin So Soft. I have an old box of their towelettes, and I keep them in the craft room. I find that one towelette lasts me at least a year, usually more. (The bath oil on paper towel would work fine too) It takes the gunk off really easily, and it's perfectly safe to handle, no worries about what it might do to your hands. After cleaning with the SSS, then I usually wipe dry with paper towels. If I'm concerned that there might be oil residue, I might wash the scissors in the bathroom with a little soap, but I almost never do that. (SSS keeps them free from rust, and keeps them lubricated as well!)
Heading into retirement, and eager to get there!
