It doesn't clean very well and super strong fragrance

This is a terrible dishwashing liquid I never had, it doesn't clean very well. Another one called "Divine Blend Lotus Flower & Sea" has a super strong fragrance that stays on the dish, you couldn't rinse it off and transfer the fragrance to your food, I have to tip the meal to the bin, just disgusting!

Not good anymore

Used be good now it's useless. Used it for years and so did my parents. Clearly the product has changed because it does not clean anything and does not remove grease at all. Will never buy again. Have just tried a competing brand that works very well. Show details

Hopeless, not worth a cracker , worst I have ever used, must have changed the ingredients, never purchase again

Won’t suds up, won’t remove grease , use twice as much for a terrible clean Show details

Have been using palmolive for at least 30 years and I always thought it was great but now it seems to be liquid without the detergent. Does NOT cut through grease. Won't be using anymore. Show details

Need to look around for another soap detergent for washing up

I have always used Palmolive for the dishes for decades. My mother used it before me. Recently, I have noticed that it doesn't suds up. The soap remains flat and dispersed on top of the water. I find that I have to use double the liquid just to get some bubbles/suds. I wonder why they would mess with something that people have always used and is obviously popular? Need to look for alternative. Show details

Quality degraded

We have used Palmolive for a long time but at the latest stock up we noticed quality has changed significantly. Perfume is different and it's so diluted. Clearly Palmolive is cutting corners. Not happy. Need to find a new brand now. Show details

Perfume change

I noticed the perfume change and decided to look and see if it had changed... seems it has. I noticed the change because it is now making me feel ill, it is genuinely awful. Show details

Not for sensitive skin

Nice soapy smells nice does its job overall but its not for dry or sensitive skin it irritates and breaks the skin so if you have either of these skin types wear gloves or buy the purple one which is a bit more kinder to those with dry or sensitive skin Show details

New scent

I have been using Palmolive green washing up detergent for over forty years. But you have changed the scent! I do not like it al all it makes me nauseous, it smells like Woolworths home brand liquid which I hate, it works as in it cleans the dishes but it smells awful. I am sorry but I will not be buying yours again until the scent returns to the original

Nozzle keeps clogging up

The only thing to stop me from from giving this a 5 star rating is that every time I have ever bought this product the nozzle tends to clog up with the build up and I have to clean it with a tooth pick all the time. Very annoying I think you need to work on a solution for that one cheers

same as the normal liquid

not so strong, had to use a lot to clean dishes. i feel that its not so different to the normal dishwashing liquid. would have bought the generic brands rather than paying for this one. smell also not somstrong compared to other brands in the market. would not buy it again

about average

I sometimes buy the Palmolive dishwashing liquid when low on dishwashing liquid supplies and found it does a good job to do the dishes though have to use extra amount of liquid to make the palmolive dishwashing liquid lather up compared to the super concentrated dishwashing liquids / I totally recommend this dishwashing liquids for the budget conscious

Questions & Answers

No questions yet



  • This dishwashing liquid is twice as concentrated as a regular formula by Palmolive. As a result, you only need to use half the amount of dishwashing liquid that you’d normally use.
  • Made from 100% recycled packaging.
  • Costs around $5.50 for 750mL, which works out to be 73 cents per 100mL.

Feedback from reviewers

There were mixed opinions from reviewers about the quality of this Palmolive dishwashing liquid.

While some reviewers were happy with the effectiveness of this dishwashing liquid to cut through grease, others stated that a previously effective formula has since been changed, reducing the quality. A few reviewers mentioned that the top nozzle often becomes clogged.

The full ingredients list is also not easily available. Ingredients are described as a mix of anionic and non-ionic surfactants. This isn’t much help to those who prioritise having natural ingredients in a dishwashing liquid or household cleaning products, especially since dishwashing liquid makes contact with the sensitive skin on the hands.
