Mean Green and Super Tough Hand Scrub are now: Full Bore!
Two great Hand Cleaner Companies began in the 1970’s. Southwest Commercial Products in Fort Worth Texas developed “Tuff Scrub” which became “Super Tough Hand Scrub”. Phoenix Industries developed their famous “Mean Green Power Hand Scrub” in Dallas at this same time. Both products spread across America. The products were similar with a strong gritty feel. Both use detergents instead of solvents. In 2016, Southwest Commercial Products purchased Phoenix Industries. January 2019, we introduced our new name: Full Bore Products!
Mean Green is Now
We liked the name Mean Green. We liked our “Bubble Boy”. We know you like the product and question why we would change the name. It all boils down to a trademark issue…there is a degreaser product on the market with the same name. They own the rights to “Mean Green”. Therefore, we had to change. Product is the same, only a new name. And wouldn’t you rather start living the new Full Bore lifestyle! Work Hard, Play Hard, Play Clean!
Super Tough Hand Scrub is now Super Grit
You know the product as Super Tough Hand Scrub. Still the same product, but we call it Super Grit. Let’s be honest, even we did not think yelling, “Hey, do we need to order more Super Tough Hand Scrub” across the shop floor made you sound particularly tough. Just sayin…. Hence, the new name! And wouldn’t you rather start living the new Full Bore lifestyle! Work Hard, Play Hard, Play Clean!
Full Bore Story
It's happened to everyone: a pen leaks and ink winds up everywhere. It's hard to get out of your clothes, and yes, it's hard to get off your hands. Imagine if ink was what you worked with, all day, every day - in the printing industry. Those hardworking folks know a thing or two about getting clean. And, in 1979, when Super Tough Hand Scrub was created, it quickly became the go-to hand cleaner in the largest print shops across America- because it works!
But print shops aren't the only place where work can leave a mark. Nothing personal, but most tough jobs require a good hand cleaner. So Super Tough Hand Scrub made its way into truck and auto mechanic shops across the country. All types of factories as well... We pioneered the move away from 1940's GOJO formulations using mineral spirits.
Along the way, the makers of Super Tough Hand Scrub realized they had competition. And the competition was mean - Mean Green Power Hand Scrub. Sharing the same desire to wash away a hard day's work or the evidence of a weekend warrior's battle, the two companies merged in 2016 and rebranded both hand cleaners with a name that embodies the way the products work and the lifestyles of the people who use them: Full Bore!
So go ahead. Roll up your sleeves. Get your hands dirty. Full Bore will get you clean.
We're Serious About Your Satisfaction. All of our products are backed by an unconditional guarantee: If your hands aren't clean or your skin isn't softer, Full Bore will give you your money back.
