Put old socks over your hands if you have to move a piece of greenware. Today I had just put hand cream on my hands when I realized that I had to move Pope John Paul's wet greenware head. I didn't want to wash my hands to do this quick job. I put the socks over my hands and carefully lifted the head and moved it to another location. Since cream or oil on your hands will stain the greenware and cause problems, if I hadn't been able to cover my hands, I would have washed them before I touch any greenware.
