remembered that we needed dishwashing liquid while I was at HD. I was skeptical when I saw the low price of this dishwashing liquid. As the bottle states, it is not concentrated. Our dishwasher does 95% of the dish washing in our home so I'm not very particular about dishwashing liquid. We mainly use it to just to soak an occasional pan so this works great for us. As for the chemical smell other reviews mentioned, there is a slight smell that comes through the apple scent but nothing serious.
