Pros: The great scent; Cuts grease instantly; Cleans dishes to perfection
Dishwashing liquids often have a gimmick. Some of these gimmicks are a little exaggerated, but others are spot- on and one that comes to mind is Dawn dishwashing liquid and its grease- fighting claims. This is one product that stands by its word and one of its different varieties I have tried and like very much is Dawn Ultra Concentrated Antibacterial Apple Blossom Dishwashing Liquid.
Dishwashing Liquid Facts and Figures:
Dawn Ultra Concentrated Antibacterial Apple Blossom Dishwashing Liquid is a fruity-scented dishwashing liquid that smells like granny smith apples. It is, appropriately, green in color and is highly concentrated. Only a small amount is needed to create gobs of suds and clean an entire batch of dishes.
Dawn Ultra Concentrated Antibacterial Apple Blossom Dishwashing Liquid is made to wash dishes, but there is more. The product contains antibacterial ingredients that kill germs quickly and this quality makes it a hand soap just as much as a dishwashing liquid. It can be used either way and can actually take the place of ordinary hand soap.
Dawn Ultra Antibacterial Apple Blossom Dishwashing Liquid is made using the active ingredient triclosan 0.10%, purpose - antibacterial hand soap. Inactive ingredients include Water , Sodium Lauryl Sulfate , Sodium Laureth Sulfate , C12-14-16 Dimethyl Amine Oxide , SD Alcohol , Sodium Chloride , PPG-26 , PEI-14-PEG-10 , PPG-7 Copolymer , Cyclohexanediamine , Phenoxyethanol , Magnesium Chloride , Methylisothiazolinone , Fragrance , Yellow 5 , and Blue 1.
Dawn Ultra Concentrated Antibacterial Apple Blossom Dishwashing Liquid is another excellent product from Dawn: A Proctor & Gamble brand name with decades of grease- fighting history under its suds. Dawn was offered in the traditional blue- colored liqud for a long time, but it has since branched out and is now available in several varieties, each with its own unique scent and/or cleaning emphasis.
Dawn has always been a trusted name and for that reason, I was very confident when I decided to try Dawn Ultra Concentrated Antibacterial Apple Blossom Dishwashing Liquid for the first time. And from my experience, this variety is every bit as good as the others in the Dawn family and in my opinion, rates even better than most Dawn dishwashing liquids for several reasons, the first of which is the scent. I like regular Dawn’s scent, but this one is even better, for it offers the fresh, delightfully clean and fruity aroma of granny smith apples. It isn’t overbearing, but it is like an air freshener in many ways, filling the surrounding air with a scent reminiscent of a fruit pie bakery, and a very clean one at that.
Fresh scent is a nice quality in any dishwashing liquid, but it is only the beginning. Dawn Ultra Concentrated Antibacterial Apple Blossom Dishwashing Liquid is also great for- you guessed it- the grease fighting properties. It breaks down grease exactly the way you would expect a Dawn product to do the job. Just a drop of this liquid on top of small puddle of grease illustrates the grease- busting properties of this product. You can visibly see the grease start to break apart and its effect on grease- covered dishes is second to none.
As for the cleaning ability, Dawn Ultra Concentrated Antibacterial Apple Blossom Dishwashing Liquid earns very high marks in this area as well. It helps to rid dishes of the food and beverage stains common to ordinary usage and while there may be a need for a small amount of scrubbing, the elbow grease is minimal. Then, there is the bacteria- fighting factor. This anti-bacterial product is great for fighting germs, making it a good choice for the germ phobic among us as well as others who like this extra, added bit of protection.
Dawn Ultra Concentrated Antibacterial Apple Blossom Dishwashing Liquid costs a little more than the average dishwashing liquid, but one must remember that it is a concentrated liquid and less is needed to create a good amount of suds and get dishes clean. People tend to overuse dishwashing liquid, but you need to be very careful to control the usage with this product. It will produce too many suds and go to waste if you overdo it. Just a small squirt really is all you need to clean dishes and fill the air with the great scent of green apples.
Overall, Dawn Ultra Concentrated Antibacterial Apple Blossom Dishwashing Liquid is an excellent dishwashing liquid and one of my favorites in the Dawn lineup. I love the fresh scent, grease- cutting, and cleaning abilities and I like it better than most other Dawn liquids. The price is a little higher, but the concentration means less liquid is used and money is saved in the long run. Add everything up, pro and con, and you have an excellent dish cleaning product.
