Dish Detergent


Question for the day ... 


Why do they put perfume scents in the stuff you are going to wash your dishes with?? Do you REALLY want to smell soapy apples when you are having some steak and potatoes?

  • We started buying perfume-free dish soap for my husband's beermaking equipment, and I started using it for everything.

  • I don't smell the soap after they've been rinsed, dried, and put away. I think its just so you don't have to smell something worse while you're actually washing the dishes.

  • I just want my dishes clean. Not smelling like apples or whatever. That includes body wash and shampoos for me at least. I just want to smell clean. If I want perfume smell I will spray some on.

  • I know why
    It's because it's used as a handwashing liquid too

  • I've never had dishes smelling like soap later. But then again I'm anal about rinsing every speck of soap off.

  • Louise, I agree with the dish part ... gotta have my good smelling body and hair products. I bought the clear Dawn last time and have never been happier. There is no odor residue on the dishes (we use a lot of Rubbermaid plastic ware) and those perfumed soaps left, well perfume smells on them and I wash in 120-130 degree hot water.
