Question Favoirite Industrial hand Cleaner?

A little off topic, but then again, not really!

What is your favorite or preferred industrial hand cleaner?

Fast Orange, Gojo, Lightening, Yuk Off (by Loctite), Jasol Citrus..?
Must be a pumice or polymer bead scrub and not talking about Solvol cakes unless Solvol liquid.

Anyone tried Wurth, Grease Off, Loctite's 7850, Worx, Bring It..?

I have been using Jasol Citrus and just emptied my last refill. I like it, but wonder if there is anything better to try from your experiences.
Even BMW have a cleaner and Ford that looks like good value but no pumice/polymer so personally, I won't.

Hard to go past the original Protectolene besides the fact that if you read the safety data sheet, it would probably say to avoid skin contact.

I have some truckwash detergent that is quite good otherwise regular dishwashing detergent does the job.

Lightning.

Tried most of the rest. It's the only one that seems really good at getting rid of really grimey dirt, grease, oil mix found under the car.

I've found the green stuff from supercheap is pretty good. $7 or so for a small bottle and $25 for the 2L which lasted me over a year. Very very hard on your skin though.

Not to hijack Steve's thread(too much anyway), obviously car guys end up with damaged hands after they pummel them with oil/grease and hand cleaners and especially during Winter when it's a lot drier .

I've been using the 5hit below for years and haven't found better. It says "visible effects within 5 days", but I have found that it actually shows results after one day

Soybean based! http://buy1.snapon.com/catalog/item....ia&dir=catalog
AU$242 buys 12x 18oz or roughly 6 litres, which is pretty expensive..

or better value would be 4x 1 gallon bottles (~15 litres) of http://buy1.snapon.com/catalog/item....ia&dir=catalog
for $317 = ~$20 a litre Not bad but large outlay. They don't sell just one unless I chase a tool van down.

Apart from hand wipes at Officeworks, all are UK on eBay.
https://www.ebay.com.au/sch/i.html?_...rfega&_sacat=0

Also looks expensive. $156 for 4 litres (free post) http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Swarfega-...cAAOSwjHdZYcMA
