    Have to leave my awesome gym for a commercial and not allowed to use chalk so looking at alternative.

    I have ghecko grip and after using chalk in don't like it. Has anyone used liquid chalk or liquid grip?
    If so does it make a mess?

    Yeah, I used to use liquid chalk. I can't remember the brand name now. I ended up giving it to a mate because I was able to use chalk again.

    If you don't have any other option then it does the job, but chalk will always be better.

    Liquid chalk or liquid grip? The liquid chalk should turn to a powder.

    My major concern is once it turns to chalk does it make a mess?

    I'm almost certain mine had chalk in the title but it didn't turn to a powder like you're saying. Last time I used it was 5+ years ago, so probably different to what's available now. Just watching one of Meg's videos. Looks like it has potential to make a small mess.

    god i would die happy suffocating between her legs.

    looks to make a small mess but nothing like chalk in a bucket.
    might be the way to go.
    i can use straps but then i cant wear my belt as it suffocates me.

    @flow

    Google Mission Power Grip comes in a 50ml tibe and dries like chalk on your hands but not messy. I have found you need to re-apply throughout your workout but it is cheap enough. They stock it at Rebel Sports or you can buy it online, it is about $15 a tube.

    piece of piss to make your own if you have leftover chalk and cheaper. Heaps of vids on youtube. I just powder it up and mix it with isocol or vodka. Make it consistency of toothpaste. whack it in a jar. you just rub it into your hands and the alcohol evaporates of leaving chalky residue. will leave chalk on the bar but you won't leave the chalk all over the ground.
