Don't waste your money on this product!
This Morning Fresh doesn't even deserve 1 star. This product doesn't work at all. Try to wash Decor containers and non-stick pan to see what I mean. The containers will still be as oily and greasy after rubbing, rinsing 3 times in a row. Totally garbage!!!
Used to be good but now is RUBBISH
I have used this produt for decades, but not any more! Sick of the liquid getting weaker so you need to use more and the bottle going down in size to 900ml. And they treat their customers like idiots by putting "just one squirt is enough" on the bottle. One squirt could mean a teaspoon or half a cup! You would be far better off buying Woolworth's (or Coles') homebrand dish liquid at 99c per litre. Yes, you need to use more, but at that price, you still come out much better off. Earth Choice is another good buy at $2 per litre. It's not quite as...strong as Morning Fresh, but it's less than one third the price. So good riddance forever, Cussons, with your lousy dishwashing liquid and dishonest marketing tactics. Have you never heard the saying 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'? OK - I just dicovered from the Reject Shop a 675ml bottle of Morning Fresh, it says it's the original, and I highly recommend that. It's only $2.50 so you really can't go wrong.
Morning fresh used to be a brilliant product , but somehow somewhere things have gone seriously wrong. Absolutely no suds and no grease cutting power. Couldn't help but notice the product is now made in Indonesia, is this a factor ? , one of the main ingredients seems to be totally missing , morning fresh now has no cleaning power whatsoever.
My advice is to stay well clear of this dishwashing liquid, if you use you will be literally throwing your money down the drain.
Crap no more
I had the experience of the quality of this product going downhill - when I bought it from a cheap shop (Reject shop or similar) quite a few years ago and stopped using it for a short while however I bought it again, by accident, and found it was back to what it was - the best on the market only needing a couple of drops in the sink. I have to water it down as my husband has suds everywhere otherwise! I have used it when I have been caught out with no laundry detergent and it does a great job on that too, just a bit too sudsy for the purpose....I don't know where all these other disgruntled customers have been shopping. I just get it from Coles, Woolies or big W, whoever has it on a good special at the time. Maybe make sure it doesn't have anything but English on the labelling? Sorry Nunya, Rob B etc I think you may have a cheap copy!
I use it as hair shampoo as well
I've been using morning fresh to wash dishes and to wash my hair for about 30 years.
The first time I used it for washing my hair when I ran out of shampoo. Everyone was commenting on how shiny my hair was, that night. Ever since then I haven't used anything else.
Listen to the reviews! Waste of money!
Pros: Once had a good brand name and reputation!
Cons: New and improved formula is absolute trash, feels heavily watered down and cannot cut through grease.
Verdict: Save money and DON'T buy this product, otherwise you will have trouble washing plastic containers. Real let down.
Bring back the good old original!
I agree with everyone else. The product has changed and I'm sure it's due to now being manufactured offshore. I found another type of Morning Fresh on sale "Morning Fresh Ultimate" made in Poland which is like the Morning Fresh of old. But of course it's that little bit dearer than the others. I dislike all these new fragrance types as well. Not necessary to have so many different types of perfume in a dishwashing liquid. Just bring back the original...
No longer the best, how sad.
I used to tell all my friends to use Morning Fresh only to find out most of them already used it. Not any more. It just isn't as good and the nozzle gets clogged. I bought the new concentrate which was the same price as the regular but I got 50 mls less. This is still not as good as it used to be. So dissapointed.
HOT to NOT
Another formerly great product that changed their winning formula. Morning fresh was always a superior dishwasher liquid and I used it exclusively since I married 32 years ago because my mum always used it before that. It was a bit more expensive but everyone who used it knew a little went a long way and its grease cutting power was second to none. As soon as I saw the new packaging and different fragrances with the dreaded "new improved formula" stamped upon it is knew that it would be inferior to the original as is almost always the case. I ...bought the new improved formula anyway hoping for the best but it was as I thought. A dud. It's now watery, using at least 4x the amount for half the suds. It must have some kind of thickener in it now because the detergent dries to a lump of gel on and in the nozzle so you can't use it as a squirt bottle. I have to screw the top off and either pick at and rinse the nozzle or just pour some in and replace the glued up lid. Why do companies with a winning product do this? I would have gladly paid more for the original but have now for the first time ever ever bought something else. I'm trying the aldi one. It's not as good as original Morning Fresh but it's heaps better than the new formula. I'll probably try something else next time I need dish detergent.
I've been using morning fresh for ages now, but recently I found that it does not have any suds, and you have to use more of it and of course the bottle doesn't last. I told my husband this and he said he didn't notice, but I did, I'm a woman. I feel as if they have watered the detergent down, as it's not as thick as the old morning fresh. SHAME on you for doing his to us. You make a smaller bottle and make us pay extra, it's just a joke. Do the right thing for everyone and bring back the OLD MORNING FRESH. The public deserve a better quality dishwashing detergent, otherwise how are we suppose to get our dishes clean. NOT A HAPPY CUSTOMER
What ever happened to MADE IN AUSTRALIA.
Take it from me I have used Morning Fresh Dishwashing Liquid for many years, and found it to be a winner in the dishwashing stakes. That was until I found the same product (Morning Fresh) purchased from Coles Supermarkets, that my daughter was using had some sort of a problem, it refused to wash a normal size stack of greasy dinner plates, and they were not squeaky clean like they do at my home. I noticed that the product was now being made offshore in Indonesia the same cheap and nasty product that Farmer Jacks, Reject Shop and the like impo...rted direct from Indonesia and were selling at very slightly reduced rates to the unsuspecting public. So how does the manufacturer remedy this situation. They immediately stop manufacturing the product in Australia and have it produced off shore in Indonesia and even worse they then had it made to the Indonesia third world standard. These people are nothing more than blood sucking parasites that think that profit becomes before prestige and that people will still use this rubbish. There are plenty of more worthwhile dishwashing liquids available in the Supermarkets and I recommend that to all Australians do not purchase cussons morning fresh dishwashing liquid. You will be sorry if you do. PS. I still have quite a stock of the MADE IN AUSTRALIA product but once that is gone so will Morning Fresh it is bloody rubbish.
