Dish Soap

Recommended Posts

This is not a "is there gluten in dish soap post". With that said, between my lovely elbow DH and scars and my bleeding hands from Dawn dish soap. (I do a heck of a lot of dishes and this stuff takes oil off of wildlife so it must be harsh) my arms don't look very pretty.

I bought some Palmolive Pure+Clear Dish Soap. It says no unnecessary chemicals ..to try. I was wondering what you other DH'ers use?

Thanks!

I have been allergic to Dawn since it first came on the market. I have for years used Palmolive Soft Touch w/ Aloe for dry skin. When the store is out of that I use regular Palmolive but the Soft Touch is gentler on my skin & still does a terrific job. I have not seen the Palmolive Pure & Clear but when I do I will be buying a bottle of it!

I think the real solution is that someone else should do the dishes! :D

Unless I can get Aidan (my 85 pound greyhound) to do them, it's all me! :lol:

I like kareng's suggestion! But I bought a large bottle of Dawn at Costco, and since it's so concentrated I have a smaller bottle that I refill about 1/3 to 1/2 with Dawn and add lukewarm water and turn the bottle around (upside down) several times until it mixes together. When I'm doing a LOT of dishes, my hands do get dry, so I sometimes use rubber gloves, and I found some Suave hand lotion that seems to work fine so far.

Great topic!

We've used Dawn for years since we do not have an automatic dishwasher. We usually use the "Hand Renewal" version (the pink, non-see through kind). Not too long ago, my hubby came home with the blue see through version. After that, I started having eczema problems again on my hands (mostly by my wedding ring) AND strangely enough, my finger tips started burning and hurting horribly when using the touch pad on my phone and laptop. I even went so far as to purchase a stylus since my finger tips hurt so badly that I couldn't even use my phone very well. I was so frustrated thinking that I'd discovered yet one more "weird thing" about my system.

Nothing had changed in my diet or anything else so all I could attribute it to was that version of Dawn.Whatever is in there was NOT making my poor hands very happy. So, when we finally finished that bottle, we went back to the hand renewal version and all is well. No more skin problems on my hands. So, keep in mind that the version of the dish soap might be a factor (as I'm sure many of you already know all too well). I don't know if it was gluten in there or not but there was definitely something in there that my hands reacted to.

Happy Dish Washing!!

I've noticed with the blue version that it is more harsh than any of the others. I had a large patch of skin that was cracked and irritated and it took some time to clear up.

Yup. That's what happened with me. At least we could identify it and remedy it.  :-)

I found Dawn free and clear a few weeks ago at Walmart, but I am even reacting to that, so only Palmolive free and clear for me. Weird thing is when I was younger, maybe 11 I reacted to every dish soap as well as body soap out there except Ivory.
