Maybe it's not the chicken. Maybe it's because it's "finger lickin' good"....

I found most cleaners work, but, when you do the dirty work day after day, over time, the cracks get filled in, and you just can't seem to get the dirt out...unless, you eat some fried chicken...
How ever, once I started getting the Zep green cleaner, I had no more problems...I'm not advertising it, just saying that seemed to do the job. Used to get it in the 2 lb plastic bottles, with the dispenser. A little more money, but it was well worth it to me...
This stuff...

I use Gojo Natural Orange Pumice Heavy-Duty Hand Cleaner, it works pretty good for my hands and smells good to the wife if I use it once and awhile in the house.

I was in a shop were the previous tenant left some light green, gritty, dry-ish paste made for removing printer's ink. It was in a round, green, wall-mounted dispenser and IIRC, it had a gold (mayber silver) and black label. I've never found an automotive cleaner that did as well. I wish I had made a note of the manufacturer and I only mention it now in case someone may know what it was.

I have gotten hooked on "kresto" hand cleaners. They work better for me than the gojo and orange stuff. It will remove paint and grease with little effort and leaves my hands reasonably smooth so the wife is happy too Of course Lacquer thinner is my other alternative, but the wife is not as happy when I use it

after you wash your hands with your favorite hand cleaner and they're still dirty use a good hand lotion to help moisten your hands (this is what the chicken is doing) then wash them in a half hour or so. this has always worked good for me. If I remember to I put lotion on my hands before I start getting greasy and it helps a lot.

Gritty Girl Hand Cleaner

I only stated using it because the site offers a free sample. I ordered it. Loved it and got a coupon for 20% off. It worked out to like $6.20 a can and it lasted forever.

Only thing I can think of that would be close to that, is Brasivol which was a facial scrub for Acne made by Stiefel Labs. It was a green, gritty paste that came in a small can, and it did work great as a hand cleaner. My dad used to work at the plant that produced it and brought home outdated or rejected product all the time.. Stiefel Labs sold out to GSK a few years ago, and it's probably one of the products that GSK discontinued
