If you are not lucky enough to have a dishwasher, then like me you are doing plenty of dish washing at the sink. I discovered this Ajax lavender and lemon dish soap and am very pleasantly pleased. First thing you will notice is the wonderful fragrance which is almost a lingering scent for you while you do the dishes. This is also a super degreaser and I have put it through the paces for greasy skillets. You will not spend alot on this either as I located it at the local Dollar General store for under $2.00. The stated warnings are to not mix with chlorine bleach. This product is earth friendly as it is phosphate free. This is a Colgate-Palmolive company. If you can do your dishes and be mildly pleased with the wonderful scent of lavender and lemon, maybe it won't seem like a chore.
