"I remember my grandfather and father using Swarfega, and I use it now as do my kids. It has been around so long as it is simply the best. I have tried newcomers, but Swarfega simply is the business. This pump dispenser can sit in a bathroom cabinet and not look out of place - it also means I'm not struggling to get a lid off with black oily hands so the container stays clean too. For such an effective cleaner I find it's not too harsh on the skin for everyday use. Strips oil and even ground in soil and dirt off my hands quick as a flash. I thoroughly recommend it."
"Until this product came out, the best all-purpose hand cleaner we found came from Switzerland, which was a pain to get hold of.
Now we have these mini dispensers everywhere, as well as the wall-mounted ones in our workshops. I use them at home as well.
It'll get most stuff off, as the granules work better than a scrubbing brush in most cases; it can be used dry as well as wet; it contains moisturiser, so repeated use doesn't dry out your hands; and is excellent value.
We buy the big pump dispenser bottles as well, but use them to refill the mini dispensers, as they don't get in the way as much."
"This stuff definitely works. I was a little surprised about how coarse the hand wash is, so don't buy it if you're planning on using it frequently as a general hand wash (hence 4* for features). It is for the end of the day or when you've got a lot of grease, dirt and crud on your hands.
Makes your hands smell nice afterwards, which is always a bonus!"
"Swarfega have always made a good hand cleaner, the orange gritty cleaner is no exception, it gets right down into the grime and rinses away easily. Quite strong so may dry your hands out a little but they will be clean and soon return to normal."
