Dawn dish soap was introduced in 1973 by Proctor & Gamble Company. My Mom started using it then and never looked back. I have never found anything that removes grease better and most don’t come near. The owners at the compounding pharmacy bought one of those “Compare to Dawn” cheapo brands and it was awful. You would have to wash twice as much and it would never really be as clean as Dawn.
