Ultra Dawn Hawaiian Pineapple Scented Dish Detergent Is Too Strong Smelling
Ashley has shared her opinions about one of the newer fragrances of Dawn dish soap, Hawaiian Pineapple. ***Update: This scent appeared to be discontinued, but I recently saw it back in stores again, perhaps because so many people clamored for its return.***
After many years of using different dish detergents I decided to try Dawn dish soap in the Hawaiian Pineapple Scent.
I tried it because I had a coupon, and with an in-store sale, the 10.3 FL OZ bottle was free. I figured how different could it be?
The first time I squirted it into a sponge I was taken aback by the strong sweet scent. It was so strong and sweet that I winced and began rinsing out my sponge.
Realizing I needed to use this dish soap I began hand washing my dishes, quickly, more quickly than I normal do. This task, that I normally find relaxing, was something I wanted to finish, if no other reason than to get away from the smell.
It lathered up like any other dish soap I’d used before. It cleaned my dishes relatively well, with the exception of the greasy pots. For those, the soap just didn’t get them clean enough to suit me. Therefore, I opted to put those in the dish washer. Otherwise the soap was fine, except for the smell.
I would most likely purchase Dawn again, especially with a good price, as long as I have a coupon, but this time in unscented.
Thanks Ashley for your review of this scent. I don't think I've even seen it in stores, but I'm not sure.
This scent is apparently part of Dawn's "Destinations" scents, which seems to be relatively new. I would be interested to hear from other readers who have tried Dawn dish soap in any of these exotic scents, to say whether you like them or not. There are some people who love variety and interesting scents, and those who like the tried and true, or something less powerful.
It is interesting that you mentioned you would only by this product again in an unscented version. I looked, and at this time I don't believe they have an unscented version. Instead, even the Dawn Pure Essentials line, which is advertised as hypoallergenic, has scents. That seems incredible (in a bad way) to me, since I always advocate for an unscented version of just about every cleaning product.
I loooooove the Hawaiian Pineapple scented Dawn dishwashing liquid!
I, unlike Ashley, love its amazing smell and it actually makes me WANT to wash dishes!
And trust me, I have a litter of wee ones, so there's ALWAYS a buttload of dishes to wash!
I also find that it cleans everything well & cuts grease just fine.
I pray that Dawn never discontinues this scent! For surely if they do, I shall wither away and dishwashing will severely suffer within my humble abode. Becoming nothing more than a lost art... somewhat of an urban legend if you will.
Once I got the review from Ashley above I got quite a few comments from other readers discussing this scent of Dawn dish soap, which appears to have now been discontinued.
Here are the comments, which I've compiled into this submission.
I love the pineapple scented dish liquid. It smells wonderful. I always use Dawn dish liquid.
Donna Cunningham asks:
I like the original scent but not any others until this scent was introduced. Now I can not find it on any of the three grocery store shelves in my town. Was it taken off the market? I sure hope not!!!!
Taylor's response to Donna:
Donna, I actually just saw this scent the other day in my Walmart, in the small bottles, that are almost trial size.
Therefore, as far as I know they do still make it.
Unfortunately, I haven't found any great sources for purchasing it online though.
Does anyone else have any resources to suggest for buying this scent online?
***Update: Since writing this, this scent has disappeared from the Dawn website, and there is no mention of it, plus I haven't seen it in my stores in quite a while either. This leads me to believe it is now discontinued. ***End Update

My Mom & I love the scent of Hawaiian Pineapple dish detergent. The problem is we can't find it now.
Please do not discontinue it. Can you tell me where we can find it?
Lynne from Pennsylvania says:
I loved it, but I too, cannot find it in the local supermarkets. I hope Dawn has not discontinued it.
Don't you just hate it when you really begin to like a product and then the manufacturer takes it off the market?
Well, that is what apparently happened to this scent.
If anyone knows where you can still snag some of the bottles for sale, please tell me about it. Otherwise, if you've found another pineapple scented dish soap you enjoy that might take its place tell me about that too, for those who'd like to try something similar.
You can share your dishwashing soap reviews here, or read other reviews that have already been submitted to hopefully find another brand or variety that you can enjoy as much as this now discontinued version.
