I've had great results with this; it isn't Dawn, which is what I'm used to, so there's a bit of a learning curve on how to best use it, but so far it's cleaning well. As far as the "uglies" part, It's soap, and at the reduced price from the regular bar I was perfectly willing to give it a try. Glad I did!
Love this dish soap bar. It was a gift from my son. Easy to use with a sponge or to make a whole pan of suds. Will continue to purchase
