How I got my boys to do the dishes!

Hands up those of you who just LOVE doing the dishes!

Come on, let's see some enthusiasm!

No?

Yeah, me neither...

Mostly I palm it off onto the Grumpy Old Man. Here's why. I don't like getting my hands wet and I especially don't like how my hands feel after washing the dishes. Before you start on about using gloves, I loathe gloves!

I have to say though that this past week or so, washing the dishes has actually been kind of nice, no really! I kid you not! You see, I got to try out this new product from Palmolive...


Palmolive have just release a new range of dishwashing liquids and I had the opportunity to try out their Palmolive Divine Blends Vanilla & Berries dishwashing liquid - which retails at $4.99 for a 700ml bottle of the ultra concentrate. This is a really luscious dishwashing liquid and it smells heavenly! In fact, the smell of it brought the boys to my kitchen - that'd be Lukas and Bryn, I'm talking about. They thought I was baking something! (in their dreams, it's been a while since I had time to bake)

So, guess what happened next?


Yep, that's the boys washing the dishes for me! Bonus, hey?

Of course, you know kids - they love bubbles, but you have to ask yourself, did the dishes actually get cleaned? Well, yes they did! This liquid is powerful stuff, and even though it they were washing pots and cups together (argh!) all the dishes passed inspection because the liquid actually did 'cut through the grease' and left my dishes sparkling - exactly as it promised to!

Palmolive also have a smaller 375ml bottle, in the scent of Violet & Apple Blossom, it retails for $3.49. I haven't had the pleasure of trying it yet. 

The Palmolive Divine Blends range is available in all leading supermarkets, but if you're lucky, you could win your very own bottle of Vanilla and Berries blend to try at home! I have three to give away and all you have to do is answer one simple question:

Q: Which unique aromatic experience did the kids and I have while washing with Palmolive Divine Blends?

Who knows, maybe the Palmolive Divine Blends Vanilla & Berries will work it's magic* on your kids as well!

* Palmolive makes no claims that their dishwashing liquid is magic, but I cannot put the enthusiasm of my kids wanting to wash the dishes of their own free will down to anything else!
