What hand cleanser?

I've tended to use Sawrfega but any other recommendations?

Cheers

I use an orange gritty one in a 4 litre pump action bottle ... from CostCo. I think it is branded Swarfega. Very effective. The original green slimy Swarfega is awful stuff

I 2nd the orange gritty stuff, seems to be similar from many vendors, the stuff I use from Canadian Tire works as good as the Costco stuff which is probably comparable with the Halfords one.

What are 'beads' made from? They are hopefully not plastic!

Haven't tasted them. Very fine gritty feel

I use Solopol following a machine engineer friend of mine recommendation who spends all week up to his elbows in oil and grime - seems to work well with fine pieces of pumice in the solution and not overly chemicalled so reasonably kind on the skin - I've never had any adverse skin irritation reaction

Kind regards

Orange Swarfega bought in 4 L containers.

But a lot less of it since I finally found workshop gloves that I like:

Tornado Contour Avenger Breathable Precision Work Gloves

Just googling Solopol it looks like it is made by DEB who also make the Swafega range of products.

I think I'll be getting the orange stuff from Screwfix next as a) no plastic beads and b) we have a branch 10mins walk away :-)
