We have always used Dawn. We typically use only the dishwasher, but have to hand wash the tough stuck on pots and pans. Dawn never leaves a residue and removes all of the grease. It's never much more than the store brands and is worth the extra few cents.
This is the Gain product that we use the most. It is specialized for cold water washes-which is the only option we use. It allows us to save money and we can still take hot showers while the washer is running. That's always a plus. Even though my husband and son both have sensitive skin, they have been able to use this detergent without any reactions.
First, I love that the Y has a financial assistance program. We are a one income family due to having a special needs child. It has never been easy to afford a gym plan for both my husband and myself. Our son, who is autistic, has been able to take swim lessons there and they were very successful. Secondly, I love the multitude of locations. Whether I go in my hometown while my son is in school or in another town half an hour away while he is in therapies, I always have the option to go to the closest Y. Third, they have recently opened a new Y with a large water park area. We are looking forward to being able to use that as a fun summer getaway as a family.
