It has been a while since I've reviewed some of my favorite products. Maybe that's because it's been a while since I've been super impressed with something. Normally, I'm a Seventh Generation or Method dish soap girl. However, every now and again, propaganda works on me and I branch out and try something else. This is one of those cases. About 99% of the time, the product is never as good as what it says on TV. I know this, yet I keep seeming to fall for it (after all, Diet Dr. Pepper really does taste more like regular Dr. Pepper!) I saw this commercial, maybe over a year ago, but this stuff sticks in my brain, for Dawn Power Clean. It promises overnight soaking power in 5 minutes....see really it's ingrained in my brain and I can recite slogans from years ago. I don't know why, but I just had to try it. But, being the green cleaner I am, I kept putting it off. Finally, a coupon plus a sale got to me and I bought it. Wow! This stuff is awesome! I do have to say, the first couple of times I used it, the smell got to me because I normally get scent free products, but now I don't even notice the fragrance. The amazing cleaning power of this stuff makes up for the fact that it has fragrance in it (also, there may be a fragrance free one, but not where I bought it). This stuff cuts through grease like magic. It also really does have the power of overnight soaking in 5 minutes. My baked spaghetti dish was it's true test. I use a glass casserole dish for this meal. Normally, even after soaking overnight, I really have to scrub to get the burnt stuff off. Not with Dawn Power Clean. I added one little squirt and hot water. I probably actually let it sit for 30 minutes because I got involved in other stuff, but when I came back to it, one quick wipe with the sponge got everything off! I was seriously amazed. I also, being the cynic I am, thought it was a fluke. A few days later, I tested it on our old scrambled egg pan. Now, when I cook scrambled eggs, I can make it so barely anything sticks. When Husband cooks eggs in the particular pan, well, let's just say it needs soaking action so I'm not scrubbing for hours. Again, a little squirt and hot water. About 5 minutes later, the pan wiped clean! Anything that cuts down on my cleaning time and makes my life easier, I'm all for! Definitely worth buying!
