i've used Goop, GoJo, Fast Orange, Snap-On, & a number of others i can't remember.
they either didn't clean very good or would dry my hands out. then there is the smell. Goop & GoJo being the worst. they clean ok, but dry my hands out so bad that in cold
dry weather after just a week i can make a fist & my hands start bleeding. a month of using them in the summer does the same. using hand lotion after each time i use them helps, but not enough to stop the cracking.
for the last 15 years or so, i've used almost nothing but Zep Reach hand cleaner. for me it works better than the others & isn't near as hard on my skin as most of the others. it even removes tar. in cold dry weather it does start to dry my hands out after a few weeks but i can keep it in check with some hand lotion every night.
about 6 months ago i heard about Cherry Bomb & talked the boss into buying some. it cleans almost as good as Reach does & it makes my hands softer, plus it smells great.
