    It sounds weird but wear a pair of wet white socks when sanding. Dry your hands when on a smoke break or just to have a beer. Wring the socks out before next use. Steal your wifes hand lotion when done for the day.

    What difference does the color of socks on you feet matter and why do you want your feet wet when sanding??? Wouldn't that make standing uncomfortable???
