BleachBit vs CCleaner opinions
BleachBit is open source and does a thorough job of deleting various files that could reveal what you've been up to, from cookies to temporary files and other junk. It can't replace CCleaner on Mac, but on Windows and Linux it is arguably better and more trustworthy.

OnyX vs CCleaner opinions
To compare Onyx with CCleaner is like comparing an apple to a CPU. They are incomparable.
Onyx is basically a GUI tool for all the housekeeping tools that macOS has on the command line. It will allow you to reset/clean up and clear most of the caches and tools that are in macOS, but have no dedicated GUI. In so far it is a "safe" choice, because it doesn't do anything that isn't provided for by the OS itself, it just offers a GUI and all the tools in one place. And for free. What's not to love?
