Ultra Dishmate Natural Lavender
Not good on grease
I thought at first that this dishwashing liquid would be fine as it seemed to clean well, but it turns out that I just had't put it to the test yet. That first batch was a very small quantity of dishes and they weren't greasy. When I tried to do regular dinner dishes, I found that this product isn't good on grease at all unless you use a huge amount, which then makes the product too expensive to buy.
I normally don't read directions on dishwashing liquid, as, what is there to say? However, I did take a look at these directions after the fact, and that tells it all: "For average cleaning, use 1 fluid ounce of Dishmate to every 3 gallons of water. You may increase or decrease this amount depending on the amount of grease." One ounce of liquid is quite a lot, and then to have to increase that amount even more for greasy dishes, is REALLY a lot of liquid. I guess they realize their product isn't that great on grease.
