"Look. Can't you see how lovely it leaves your hands?"
"Oh, yes. They are so smooth and soft. It's like you haven't been doing dishes at all!"
I shove my hands into the hot, soapy water. "And you won't believe how quickly it removes grease from all your pots and pans."
Maria takes the pan I just finished washing and rinses it off under the faucet. "My goodness! Look at that shine!" she exclaims.
"Wait until you see the last glass. This soap will work until the very last dish is done," I proclaim.
"You don't have to replenish the water and soap at all?"
"Oh, no! Dawn does the work and keeps on working."
We proceed to show our customers exactly what we mean and finish the dishes. Of course, we are at our own kitchen sink, and our only customers are whatever insects are passing by the kitchen window.
We stand on stools as we clean each fork, pot, and plate. Our commercial for the support of Dawn dish soap continues until we are done.
What an accomplishment! All the dishes from supper are clean, we didn't have to refill the sink with new water, and our hands are still soft. Aren't we amazing for choosing the right dish soap?
Hey, wait a minute....
Did we just get suckered into doing a chore? Why, yes. Dumb-dumbs....
