Growing up one of my least favorite chores was washing the dishes. While most teenage girls were into caking on makeup, I was all about caking on nail polishing and adorning my fingers with as many rings as possible since my mom didn’t allow us to wear makeup with the exception of special occasions. If you know anything about having to wash dishes by hand, you know it can really take a toll on your hands. I’m talking about chipped manicures and over dried skin. Not a good look or feel at all.
Fast forward to the present and I’m back to washing dishes by hand because our current place doesn’t have a dishwasher. And with two kids and a husband that likes to drink out of a new glass with every refill, my sink fills up fast. So, I’m roughly washing dishes two to four times a day! And I’ve tried gloves but they make hands sweat and I’ve broken my share of glasses because wet gloves make for a slippery grasp. What’s a woman to do y’all?
Cue my friends at Influenster. They me two bottles of the new Palmolive® soft touc™h dish detergents-Vitamin E and Coconut Butter- to try out. Let me say that before trying Palmolive® soft touch™, I was a tried and true Dawn user. That was the only detergent my mom trusted in our household as kids. But let me tell y’all, after using the Vitamin E formula the YUMMommy household might be making the switch to Palmolive® for real!
Seriously, my hands have never felt softer and not overly dried out after washing dishes. Plus, it’s just as effective as Dawn at cutting through grease and grime and the scents are divine. Now I know why their slogan is “Tough on Grease, Soft on Hands.” I’m truly loving the fact that I paint my nails and not have to worry about my polish chipping the same day. This dishwasher has definitely been made a fan of Palmolive® soft touch™ and will be heading to Walmart to pick up some more bottles! I do recommend that if you haven’t tried Palmolive® soft touch yet, that you buy a bottle and see how it compares to your current brand.
