Swarfega Heavy Duty Hand Cleaner 4.5Ltr is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as I’d hoped First the good stuff. The smell does indeed take me back to helping my dad (RIP) as a kid, like another reviewer said. And for that alone it’s worth the money. Also this seems to be a good bit cheaper at Screwfix than other places online so that’s great too. Now the not-so-good stuff... I’ve been doing a lot of gardening, a bit of painting and I got a load of adhesive from stickers on my hands the other day and in all honesty I can’t say this shifted any of the first two better than liquid soap. For the adhesive I had to use Isopropyl Alcohol in the end (which worked instantly). Also this stuff is very thick so you can’t decant it into a smaller pump bottle by pouring or by any other convenient methods. You just have to reach into the giant tub like a dirty bear dipping into a honey jar. So yeah, not sure it’s actually any better than liquid soap or washing up liquid to be honest but the smell connects me with lovely memories of my dear departed dad so for that I’ll keep it around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from swarfega 4.5ltr tried and trusted Swarfega. I prefer the heavy duty as it has perlite granules for deeper cleaning. the 4.5ltr is much better value than the smaller sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In a word: brilliant! This shifts dirt, oil, & all sorts of muck leaving your hands cleaner than you could get with soap & water or even other cleaners. Swarfega say that this no longer contains microbeads & that the 'abrasive' in it is totally natural. Smells OK too. Great product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Leaves Hands silky smooth! Havn't used Swarfega for many years, as couldn't find it in the shops. Intend doing a bit more DIY, so bought the large tub, as much more cost effective. Does what it says on the tin, but was most surprised at the fact it didn't dry out the skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well on the heaviest grease and dirt Trusted name in hand cleaners and will continue to buy for the foreseeable future. Yes it is available in Spain where I live, but at more than 3 times the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great as always Had some deep ingrained grime that nothing at home would shift so got this great value sized tub, the smell instantly took me back to helping my Dad as a child, this stuff is orange not green and has gritty type particles to help scrub, works better than I remember, just need to get the pump dispenser, and find somewhere to store the tub before the Mrs gets upset with it taking over the worktop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dirty deeds Needed to remove some evidence from my hands, swarfega heavy duty did the job well. If you like it dirty, buy some to get clean afterwards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent produc, and good val I've been using swarfega for 35+ years and still think it's the best. Excellent value for money in this size, and the pump dispenser (separate and cost extra) make sit easy to use with dirty hands.
