About K-GARD


K-GARD is the result of years of research by a team of chemists and is different than any other hand cleaner ever made. Our unique formula removes oil, grease, paint, tar, tree sap, ink and a variety of other contaminants with ease.  K-GARD is used without water and remains effective in sub-zero temperatures, making it ideal for people working outdoors or in the field.  K-GARD moisturizes and heals the dry, cracked skin often suffered by individuals who work with their hands.  The highly concentrated K-GARD formula works so efficiently that only a small amount is required to clean the hands, providing more value for your money.

K-GARD contains 14 different ingredients including a substantial portion (about 15%) of a combination of refined lanolin, selected oils and a bacteria stat to kill germs and destroy bacteria.  Company field testing and our customers consistently report that K-GARD cleans better and faster than other industrial hand cleaners.


Who Uses K-GARD?

Whether at home or in the workplace, the effectiveness and versatility of K-GARD benefits anyone that gets dirty “on-the-job.”  Mechanics, painters, printers, roofers, landscapers, road and utility workers are just a few of the individuals who find K-GARD to be the perfect product for cleaning up when their work is done.


K-GARD is Simple to Use:  Dispense a small amount onto dry  hands.  The cleaner is “worked” into the hands for a brief period and the toughest grit, grime, dirt and stains are loosened almost instantly!  The hands are then wiped clean with a paper or cloth towel.  It is unnecessary to rinse the hands with water, but some individuals prefer to do so.  After cleaning, it is recommended that a very small amount be used as a lotion for extra protection.

I have used this hand cleaner for 30 years because no matter what the job, (oil, paint, etc.,)  it always cleans my hands and does not leave them dried out.  Nothing else will work!
