Dawn is the only thing i allow in my house hold. i am a dish soap snob. this is the only dishsoap that lasts the entire dish washing time it cuts grease like no other, it smells wonderful. i also use it on my dogs it helps with fleas. i have also heard it helps remove ticks never had a tick yet, knock on wood. i had a lady at the pound recommend that to me. not to mention dawn also gets blood stains out of laundry, as a pre-treat, and other stains dawn is affordable, there are always coupons for dawn, they are usually on on sale too, its an all around good product i could go on all day about my love for dawn, it was the only dish soap allowed in my grandmas kitchen, my mothers kitchen and now my kitchen. i bought a generic brand once because i was low on money. it was a nightmare.
