I have used this original formula for as long as I can remember! It is the best dish liquid for the average home of dishes. It makes my dishes clean, and sparkly without any of the extra stuff. I've found that Dawn's scented dish liquid do not have the suds or cleaning power. The scented ones in my opinion, focus more on the smell! I also use the one else in the grey bottle for anything that needs to soak! It'll remove stuck on food in 5 minutes!! The original format is also good for a ton of other things. Including killing fleas from animals, stains on laundry, and so much more. It is safe for animals, what else could you ask for!!
