Which brand of dish detergent do you use?


I use Dawn.
Never really thought that much about it until we went to Maine.
I forgot to bring some (to wash out Kylers sippy cups as we used them) but they had another brand under the sink.
so, obviously, I just used there brand.

UGH! It was awful. I mean - it cleaned the dishes just fine. But, within 10 minutes of me drying my hands... my hands felt... ICKY!!
It was the worst feeling. It dried them up and they feel like they had a film on them.

Reaffirmed my decision to stick with Dawn!

Dawn - unless I know my mom is coming and is going to help clean - then I have to buy something else because she is allergic to it. Last time she wore gloves when she washed my dishes (she won't use my dishwasher)

Dawn or Palmolive unless our budget tightens up, then that is one of the corners I cut. It definitely pays to spend more for one of these though.

Biodegradable kind- Lemon Brite. Cuts right thru everything, and it doesn't dry out hands AT ALL because there are no harsh chemicals in it!

Usually whatever "antibacterial" kind is around. Usually we use the dishwasher whenever possible and we have Electrasol Orange-Scented, which is yummy smelling. The dishes spot quite a bit but don't know if it is the water, the humidity or the fact that we haven't used that other stuff you squirt in...I forget what it's called.
