Burf's dry powdered soap sounds as though it will work pretty well. It will take some scrubbing and rinsing for some types of dirt. Frankly, though, commercial orange pumice hand cleaner is hard to beat for convenience, effectiveness, and low cost ($10-15 a gallon; one squirt cleans my hands after changing the oil in my car). Oh, and it smells nice. A few drops of good-quality dishwashing liquid (Dawn esp.) is effective for many types of hand soil.

For a dry powdered soap, grate leftover bits of bath soap into small pieces and dry under the lowest heat setting in an oven.
Mix with borax and cornmeal in the following proportions by weight:
3 parts dried soap
2 parts Borax
1 part corn meal
