There's always dishes in the sink especially with a house full of five of us. We all have different hours of work so there's constantly dirty dishes in the sink. I will always use this Palmolive ultra aromatherapy dish soap. It lathers up well and all I need is one or two squeezes of soap and my dishes are clean and all done. It gets through even the toughest grease which is bacon grease. Everytime I wash the dishes I barely even scrub because the soap does all the work fighting the bacteria and odors from the dishes. I never have any leftover food on my plates or bowls when I use this dish soap. My dishes always look clean and it has a nice lavender scent that smells fresh. This soap always lasts me a long time because all I need is a little bit and it goes a long way. I definitely recommend this to anybody who has the the toughest dishes that have food stuck to them this will get it right out.
