I opened a tin can and ate something with my hands, which made them greasy. Now holding a weapon is impossible, and so is wearing rings. I tried #wipe but it seems that's only for the face. How would I wipe my hands?

You need to find a towel and apply it.

If you lack a towel, the effect should go away in due time without you needing to do anything. According to Wooble in the comments, this is specifically up to 15 turns.

The slippery hands effect lasts up to 15 turns, which really isn't all that horrible most of the time. – Wooble Feb 16 '11 at 13:34
