Stench in Sponge

At one I used to buy Dawn dishwashing detergent until some recent 'chemical' enhancements for cleaning proved to be an olfactory annoyance. As most who wash dishes use a sponge or sponge tuffy combination I noticed a few years ago that my sponge and consequently my hands (skin) would stink every time I was ostensibly cleaning my dish, kitchen, silver- ware. The culprit was soon identified as the new enhanced 'cleaning chemicals in Dawn.

I tested to make sure by buying some generic 97 cent closeout store dishwashing liquids and found I did not have that problem any more. Well, I have since stopped buying Dawn for even when on sale with coupon discovered the olfactory assault and life cycle of my sponges was diminished permanently by the chemical concoction that manifests itself as one of the most disgusting smells to permeate the sink area of my kitchen so No More Disgusting Dawn Dishwashing liquid.

It does make me wonder what went on in the early customer acceptance testing or the research labs at the corporate headquarters that they either didn't notice this, or did, and some management type thought no one would care? Who are these incompetent people? And microwaving the sponge after use with dishwashing liquid does not work at ridding the smell.

What Happened? Fix Dawn!!

I have always used dawn and never had an issue, but now after several years it is obvious that Dawn no longer cleans my dishes. Dawn was the best on the market, but now it works less than the no name less expensive brands.
Dawn what happened? I can wash only two dishes maybe 4 before having to change my water. It no longer cuts the grease, nor lathers. I use approximately 1/3 cup in every dish water caught in my sink ( approximately 1/2 a sink full ) and still end up catching approximately 3 sinks to wash dishes for one meal of dish cleaning. Dawn is the more expensive brand but it use to hold up to the price. Now it is more expensive and use more of it to wash dishes and sometimes I will have to rewash the dishes because of the grease film that is still on the dishes.
Unfortunately after being a loyal customer for approximately 30 years , it is time to move on to another product that will hold up better. I don't think it will be hard to find a better product because Dawn has become a disgrace.
Dawn you need to fix your product.

Dawn Dish Soap

I have been a longtime Dawn Dishwashing customer and lately I notice that I used more soap then I ever have- it is like you have "thinned" the product down so you have to use more. I am constantly adding more soap while washing dished. I thought I was the only one with this problem but asked 2 Dawn user friends and they agreed that they are having to add more soap as it does not seem to hold up or cut the grease. Please go back to the age old formula =it was much better.

Dawn Dish Soap

I have been a Dawn Dish soap user for years and lately I seem to be adding more soap during my dish washing- it is like you thinned out the formula and it does not cut the grease and I am constantly adding more soap. I checked with 2 of my friends that have used Dawn for years and they are finding the same situation. Please go back to the age old formula - not happy with the new one. Thank you
