Dawn for dishes - I have been doing dishes by hand almost my entire life. That was our job after dinner meals to clean the table and do the dishes. There were three of us girls so we usually finished pretty quickly. We all hated the pot and pans because of the greasy mess from the fried food and cooked on stuff on some of the pans. I think my mom tried every brand of dish soap they made when we were younger, but the best did not come out until after I left home. I have been using Dawn since it has arrived on the store shelves and I have tried all the varieties and I still like the plain blue original the best. It cleans your dishes, makes the water feel good and no greasy feeling.
There are times when I go to sisters homes and when we start the dishes I notice that they also use some variety of Dawn. I also use Dawn for stains on clothing, and greasy grill parts, it works oh so good. Dawn is worth every cent I pay for it as I get my monies worth.
