Mr. Bill:
Thanks for resuscitating this old topic!

I'll add Boraxo to the list.  It's borax plus soap powder.  Degreases dirty hands down to the bone (you might need hand lotion afterwards).  Still available, although the modern version has a bit of perfume.

Tea Tree Oil also reputedly has anti-fungal, anti-viral properties. Used by the Australians during previous wars. I've used it on warts, (a viral infection supposedly), it works, takes time.

We keep several bottles around.
