I know you can use different things to make the black dark and shiny again but...

Between Oxiclean and Starsan, getting a keg ready to fill gets my hands black each time I touch it.

Is there anything I can do so that I don't get black on my hands everytime I handle a keg? Maybe there is a type of sealer for it?

I believe you can stop by an auto store and get something called "rubber restoration" it is used for tires, that should help it not rub off.

Let us know if it works. Most of my Kegs are fine, but I do have one that makes my hands black.
