Sun Dish Soap Review: Lemon Scent Nice But Suds Didn't Last Long
I recently finished my bottle of Sun Dish Soap, in the lemon scent. I bought it because it was a lower cost option, but I have to say I was rather disappointed in it.
I purchased my bottle at Walmart, but I have also seen it available at dollar stores and other low cost big box stores.
When I first opened the bottle I liked the lemon scent a lot, it smelled very nice. I think one of the selling points for this brand is its "Sunsational Scents," since that is prominently advertised on the packaging. However, as I began to use it on the dishes I noticed the scent faded very quickly so I'm not sure if you're looking for a strong scent this soap is for you.
However, scent is really not that important to me, and I could have easily forgiven this. What really disappointed me though was that it didn't seem to last very long. I would put a little on the sponge and after just one or two dishes I would feel like I had to add more.
That was surprising to me because I had never really used a dish soap before that looked thick, like the Sun dishwashing liquid looks, but didn't last too long. I had only felt like this was a problem previously with non-ultra brands of dish soap.
The other problem I had with it is that I just didn't feel like it cut grease from my dishes well either, and I would have to add more to really remove the grease off everything.
Basically, I used the whole bottle because it did work -- just not well, and I didn't want to waste it. However, I was glad when I finished the last of it and could move on to a new variety.
Overall, I would give it a C- grade. So, my opinion of this one is that even though it is a cheap alternative, I think there are other cheaper and low cost varieties available that work better for a comparable price. (One brand I did like that meet this criteria is Ajax dish detergent).
I would like to hear from others who have also used this dishwashing liquid to hear what your opinions of it are. Perhaps you totally disagree with my opinion, or you had some other thoughts to add. You can share your dishwashing soap review here or read other reviews of other brands which have already been submitted.
Shauna shared her review of this dishwashing liquid too, and just like all the other reviews I think she was sad she tried to save money by buying this brand.
This stuff is bad, and I mean really bad. It is runny and a whole bunch squirts out.
Although, a lot goes in the water, very little suds form and I have to add a bunch more.
It says 56% more vs. Competitors' 16oz. I believe they mean the 56% more is water. I got it because it was cheap and cheap was what I got.
I can't wait to get to the store to buy something else.
Thanks so much for sharing your review, but sorry you didn't seem to like it anymore than any of the rest of us.
I'd love to hear from even more people who have used Sun dish soap, to share your experiences with it, good or bad.
In addition, everyone was looking for a cheap dishwashing liquid when they grabbed this one off the store shelf. If you have any suggestions for a cheap but better functioning soap, I'd love to hear those too.
