I use this dish soap for almost everything. It smells like real apples (not artificial) and it is pretty gentle on my hands compared to a lot of other brands.. It lathers very well (better than a lot of other brands that i have used). A whole bottle lasts me through at least a month at a time, whereas other brands have only lasted maybe half of that. I found it at Dollar General for only a dollar, so it will definitely be the brand that i choose to stick with from now on.. The smell is really awesome, though, for real. It rinses very easily, and doesn't leave a weird residue on dishes, either. I like it better than dawn, which i have a bottle of just laying around for back up at this point.
