From my experience laymen like effects which deals using their hands the most. The sponge balls comes in first with my laymen. What tricks do your laymen give you the most applause for when it comes to using their hands?

The TUC offers some spectacular "in their hands effects" -- my favorite using the Copper/Silver TUC. There are about a dozen such effects in the pending "Essential TUC" book.

but -- many are based on the thinking behind Bill's effect above.

Sponge balls but I don't do a lot of hand participation tricks. I am not the best or most knowing magician.

For my money I would say Stack of Halves, any handling really. It has such a strong appeal to it and one moment of just pure magic. However! I do use from time to time Roger Klause's Whispering Coins. This is one of the most well thought out versions of the stack idea.

The lay people people I do magic for really enjoy the Chop Cup.

Short,sweet and to the point.

I like Danny Tong's version.

"Search and Destroy" from Aaron Fisher is a great routine that happens in the spectators hands. I have gotten very strong reactions to this effect.
