I seriously hate the dishes. Really and truly. I love to cook and I hate to wash up. Furthermore I despise when the kitchen is a mess. It’s not just the heart of the house, it’s also a reflection of my brain. If the kitchen is messy, my brain gets all messy too and I get really cranky.
When I was offered the new Palmolive dishwashing liquid range to review and giveaway I thought, how am I going to make this exciting? I mean, seriously, dishwashing liquid is not something that really floats my boat.
But as I washed the dishes I started wishing someone else was doing them. More to the point, I wished my HUSBAND was doing them. And then I thought of all the ways I could use this Palmolive review as a way to get him to do some washing up. Here is what I came up with…
One: Talking to my husband through the child. For example: “I think Daddy is going to do the dishes tonight Tom! Isn’t he such a good daddy?” Always looking at the child, and never making eye contact with the husband (but making sure he is in earshot)
Two: Telling him he is conducting a scientific experiment for my Blog. For example: “Do you want to try using this amazing liquid? Apparently all these cool chemical reactions start happening right in front of your eyes!”
Three: Bribe with…well, you can use your imagination.
Now, I’m not that lucky. He did them for the sake of this Blog post. And he decided to try the Palmolive Ultra Antibacterial Dishwashing Liquid with Lemon Extracts because it claims to fight germs on the sponge for at least 24 hours. And he knows he never cleans the sponge after he’s finished cleaning the dishes or wiping the bench. So after he did the dishes, I gave the sponge the ‘sniff’ test the next day, and it was pretty good! A success. What’s the point in washing dishes with a sponge full of bacteria!
I’ve been giving the Palmolive Ultra Pomegranate liquid a try for a while now and I have really noticed how long the Pomegranate has lasted. I’ve been using it for 2 weeks now (my dishwasher is broken too) and it is so beautifully bubbly, that you don’t need much to get your evening dishes done. I also love red so it looks perfect on my kitchen bench. It leaves all my dishes nice and smooth and sparkling. As a Morning Fresh kinda gal, I was really happy with the results and am thinking a change of brands might be in order! I don’t bother with gloves either and I found that it didn’t dry my hands out like other dishwashing liquids can.
