100% Verified Customer Reviews

What can I say? This stuff just works.

I’ve tried the orange stuff and anything you can get off the shelf. Nothing works like Tough Nut. Everybody in my shop uses it.

Must have for Mechanics/DIYers.

This stuff works great. I work on all my vehicles so this is a must have for anyone who does the same. Gojo and lava bars aren’t really up to par when it comes to hand cleaners that really clean your hands.

Very Impressed!

I am an Aviation Mechanic and the hazardous materials we use stain my hands on the regular. A small dab of this soap scrubs and cleans my hands so well! Super impressed and will continue to buy!

I have been using pumice based cleaners for more than 50 years as a car mechanic.

Those do not even come close to how well this stuff works. Cleans without irritation.

Are you a grease monkey? Then this product is for you!

We have tried many brands of soap similar to this description and they never quite did the job, but this one is incredible! My boyfriend is a diesel mechanic and is always covered in grease and dirt and I was actually able to see his skin color again when he used it!

I work in a paint booth and soap and water doesn't do the job the trick.

This stuff takes multiple types of paints off. Has some grit, leaves my hands feeling smooth and doesn’t use pumice!

What are you waiting for?

If you’re still using the orange stuff or other products that use solvents, you deserve a better hand cleaner. No fragrances. No pumice. No microbeads. Just one wash is all it takes.
