AutoGear My brother is a rep for Castle Products...they make some pretty kick *** stuff here in the USA.

Budget toughguy handsoap? Any shampoo for oily hair with bust through most of it and leave your skin baby soft. Im allergic to a lot of soaps (its the dyes); so Ive used Ivory soap, Head and Shoulders shampoo, Dawn and now Castle's 'ManHandler'

I can't use a lot of handlotions either; I just buy cheap olive oil...great on your skin, all natural and a little goes a LONG way.

Liquid glove stuff is great against contact dermatitis; and ive also found the really cheap latex gloves drive me nuts. I buy a couple boxes of Nitrile ones from my dentist along with used (and autoclaved) dental picks for cleaning stuff. Oh a dentists mirror helps a lot occasionally

Perkster029 Orange Goop. Works on grease, oil, etc.

My personal preference is Fast Orange w/ pumice. It is like anything else to each his own.

ClonedGT65 I have always used Fast Orange, and it has always worked great for me.

Cherry Blast

I use one called "Cherry Blast" from Kimball Midwest. Works excellent on all kinds of grit and grime, (has pumice). Doesn't dry my hands and make them crack, etc. like GoJo, or other pro hand cleaners do. Just takes a small amount and gets them extremely clean with no 'cleaner" smell afterwards.

Orange Goop Is The Best !

I could be a salesman for orange GOOP. It has been around since 1949 and is the best that I have ever used. Just make sure to work it in real good before you add any water. Oft times I stand in front of the batroom mirror to make sure I get it worked into all the filth and then get in the shower. Work it into the grease spots on your favorite tee shirt before putting it in the washing machine, aslo. It still amazes the wife. I find it at Harbor Freight.

sbchevfreak X2 on the handkind. I had a sample, good stuff, just hard to get in Canada. I have issues with cracking skin, and Gojo, ect, were horrible! The stuff from Knd Chemical was very effective, and gentle on the skin.

oldBodyman "But no cleaner ever gets the black out of the deep cracks in my hands from 50 years of over use, scares and wear and tear!!! "

Red Scotch Brite and Ivory bar soap, the heavy duty pads NOT the painter scuff pads.

It will take off almost anything (paint, primer, glaze, bondo, grease, chassis black, tar, ect.), does clean out the cracks and does not dry out your skin. I would suggest using a hand lotion after you dry off.

It does not remove scars and it doesn't like windshield urethane (use solvent first) but everything else comes right off.

Old Fool Received a couple trial packets of Tuff Scrub yesterday. Have not had the chance yet to try it out.
Seems to be a small start up company from what I can find on Google.

The web address on the package redirects to a local nut and bolt supply house where I received the samples.

1Gary Tide-the stuff you use in your washing machine.

Kevin45 I received a sample of Bear Paw a while back. This is about the best cleaner that I have found. It's gritty like Boraxo (which is my second choice) but it also has lanolin in it plus some other stuff. I get really greasy working on dies in a fab shop and I have yet come across anything Bear Paw won't get out. It also does not dry your hands out and especially around the cuticles of your fingers.

here is the site

Jim Rockford the power gold is much better than the regular go jo, and I find the hospital type brushes help clean out the crevices and fingernails.
