It appears that the vote was a tie to a certain degree. Both Palmolive and Clorox are decent commercial line product brands. Personally speaking, I love Clorox’s toilet bowl cleaner and Palmolive’s dishwasher detergent.
A lot of people complain that they have a lot of residues, etc. left by Palmolive’s dishwasher detergent even though they are using brand new high-end dishwashers. I don’t own a new high-end dishwasher, just a regular one that I’ve had for many, many years. I’ve been using Palmolive’s dishwasher soap for roughly 6 months and have not experienced anything like residue, etc. A while back I did notice that someone online mentioned they added a little vinegar to the dishwasher soap, and that helped out greatly. My apologies but I don’t know who provided this tip online.
