I'm going to be honest, nothing has been better than Dawn soap. It's one of the best dishwashing liquid that I've ever used. As a clean-freak, I love how the original scent smells and how it leaves all of my oily dishes squeaky clean. Not only do I use Dawn for cleaning dishes, I also pour a bit of Dawn to clean my floors. It leaves a bucket of dark brown dirty water after mopping my floors; even floor detergent isn't that good! I just adopted a huge dog and his previous owner even recommended that I used Dawn soap to guve him a bath. It has worked really well, too! It's a great cheap alternative to dog soap! Plus, it's not harmful and the soap does leave your hand soft to touch. I wouldn't recommend a better product than Dawn.
