I am very picky when it comes to what dishwashing soap I use on my dishes. Dawn Ultra Antibacterial Dishwashing Liquid in Orange Scent is by far my favorite soap to use on my dishes. I have to make sure that any dishwashing soap that I use is tough yet still gentle. We do not own a dish washer so I literally wash everything by hand. This soap can clean everything in my house from baked on food to baby bottles and I never have to worry that it is not clean or has a residue left on it. I only like to use anything with an orange scent in my kitchen because it is supposed to bring peace and happiness while you are in your kitchen and using it. This is a concentrated formula so I do not blow through it very fast. I also love the fact that the Dawn products are not rough on your hands. With the amount of time I spend with my hands in dirty dish water the last thing I want is them getting all nasty because of the soap I use on my dishes.
