Palmolive Divine Blends Review and Giveaway: Washing Dishes Never Smelled SO Good!



The Mummy Hearts Money household was sent a big bottle of the Palmolive Divine Blends to trial this month. Thanks to a small accident, my first experience with the Palmolive Divine Blends involved a broken bottle and a counter top covered in detergent. My kitchen has never smelt so pretty before, and I couldn't wait to get some of this stuff into a sink full of dishes.

How Did It Perform?

I'm not a fan of a sink full of bubbles, so I put my detergent in after the water and swish it around. Palmolive detergents are nice and thick, so only the smallest dob is needed in a full sink to clean dishes. We washed a pretty disgusting and greasy pan that had been used for sausages in the sink, and had no issue with residue afterwards.

While there was no soap scum on any glassware that we washed, we find we need to use this detergent sparingly if we don't want it to need excess rinsing after wash. Which is actually a good thing as the less detergent that needs to be used per wash, the longer it lasts! I'm fairly picky with the clarity of the water when I am washing up as well, if it starts to look cloudy at all I tend to start a new sink pretty quickly, and I did find that I only refreshed my water once per full counter of dishes instead of 3-4 times which is the norm for me when using cheaper detergents.

This would probably be the most aromatic detergent I've ever used, with my my sink, my dishes, and my whole kitchen wafting the fragrance of Vanilla and Berries for some time after each wash, especially when the water is hot.

How Much and Where?

The large 700ml bottle of Palmolive Divine Blends Vanilla and Berries variety that we tried retails for $4.99 at leading retailers. I've spotted it on sale already in the last month at Woolworth's for 20% off, and I wouldn't be surprised to see another in the near future. The 375ml Violet and Apple Blossoms variety retails for $3.49.
