One gal said she rubs bar soap under her nails so the dirt washes out easily at the end of the day. Otherwise I buy the rubber gardening gloves from Costco gardenia latex gloves.

Fox gloves are my favorite. Not good for thorns but great for everything else. I have 7 pairs a clean pair for every day as they are washable.

I have a hard time keeping gloves on. Our dirt stains my hands & feet. I soak them in warm water with a bit of mouthwash. It sounds strange but it works like a charm.

Scrape your nails over a bar of soap before working in the garden. Supposedly, the soap in your nails will keep the dirt out.

I just use a hand & nail brush to scrub around & under my nails when I'm done. Walmart sells this one for about $3.

I don't wear gloves either. I cut a lemon in half, put one half in a bowl and knead it with my fingers, digging my nails into it. 5-10 minutes. Works every time.

I used to hate to wear gloves but in construction I was required to wear them 100% of the time for safety. You adapt and get used to them for all things except tape. Now I am uncomfortable not wearing them. But I still get my nails and cuticles dirty. I need to try the soap trick.

Scratch a soap bar with Nall your nails. It will feel a little weird at first but no dirt when you wash your hands.

I wear these ones. Last forever, good water protection and just trow them in the wash when needed and they come out as new.
