A Liquid Dish Wash is specially designed to prevent grease and stains on clothes. It is typically a highly forming mixture of surfactants with low skin irritation and is primarily used for hand washing of glasses, plates, cutlery, and cooking utensils in a sink or bowl. It is used primarily for removing food from used dishes and tableware. Heavy soil (large food particles) is generally scraped from the dishes before using. Detergent formula can vary based on use (hand or automatic). The Liquid Dish Wash functions well on countertops, window sills and other types of surfaces like glass and plastic.
