Tropical Traditions Dish Liquid Review & Giveaway {CLOSED}

3:15 PM

***GIVEAWAY CLOSED***

Call me crazy, but I love to do dishes. (And no, I will not come to your house and do yours!!! HA!) I guess it is because I consider it to be relaxing and helps me to get my mind off other things. Being the busy mom that I am, my brain is constantly in high gear; so anything I can do to help calm me down is a good thing. Even as a teenager I could often be found doing the evening dishes...sometimes even after 10 o'clock, just so I could unwind a bit. The other night, my hubby took the children outside and I stayed in doing the dishes. I really enjoyed that! (And I did go out after I was done too. :)  ) . So, you could definitely say that I love to do dishes.
As you all have probably noticed, I have been working with Tropical Traditions for awhile now and am really impressed with their products. Recently though, I have discovered their personal care products as well as their numerous household products. I was given another opportunity to do a review with this fabulous company and am very excited about this one!!

For those of you who are new to my blog, here is a little bit more about Tropical Traditions...famous for their Extra Virgin Coconut Oil!


When I (owner Brian Shilhavy speaking here) first read about the wonderful benefits of coconut oil, I asked my wife Marianita, who grew up on a coconut plantation in the Philippines, if there was a more natural way to extract the oil from the coconut, so that we didn’t have to buy the refined coconut oils found in all the stores in the Philippines. She said there was a method the older generation used to extract the oil by grating the fresh coconut, extracting the coconut milk, and then letting the coconut milk stand in a covered container for about 24 hours. After about 24 hours, the oil naturally separates from the water producing a crystal clear oil that retains the full scent and taste of coconuts. So we started making our coconut oil that way and using it for our cooking needs with our three children. We couldn’t believe how wonderful it tasted, and how great we felt. We had been living on Mt. Banahaw in the Philippines for almost two years by that time, and in the year 2000 telephone service was provided to our rural farming community, allowing me to put up a website about our Philippine Herbs. I decided to also put our Virgin Coconut Oil up on the website, not really expecting people to order it because it was a bit expensive since we had to hire people to make the oil, and shipping cost a lot because of the weight. We were so surprised when people started ordering, and then re-ordering it because they felt so great after using it! They told us there was no other coconut oil like it on the market. (See a sample of testimonies.)
Before long we had businesses contacting us asking how to order it in bulk. So we discussed how we could mass produce this kind of oil, and almost abandoned the product because we didn’t want to lose the traditional way of making it. In the end, we decided to just keep making it the same way, by having others in our coconut community also make the oil the traditional way. Many of our producers are in areas so remote, that if they did not use their coconuts to produce Virgin Coconut oil for us, no one would buy their coconuts because it would cost too much to transport them to manufacturing plants. In these areas, the coconuts generally just fell to the ground unused until we started training people to make our Virgin Coconut Oil. We were the first ones to export Virgin Coconut Oil from the Philippines to the US market.


If you have never tried the Coconut Oil, I would suggest that you do so. It is very rich, flavorful and perfect for cooking. My favorite way to use it is in my pan when making pancakes...it adds a nice flavor to my pancakes and they turn out sooo yummy every time I make them!
So, for this review I chose to review the Tropical Traditions Dish Liquid. This product comes in a gallon jug and is concentrated.

One of the things I love about this dish liquid is that it is free of dyes, fragrances, petroleum solvents, respiratory and skin irritants. My skin dries out really easily and if I have been doing alot of dishes, you can only imagine what my skin feels like when I am done.

I tried out this dish liquid today and it really worked well for me. You have absolutely no scent and the water bubbles nicely. (I like to SEE that my dish soap is working.) It is super easy to rinse off and the dishes are left squeaky clean. If I could change anything about this product, I would love to have some sort of light fragrance. I find that some fragrance is soothing and therapeutic too...especially if I am battling a cold or upper respiratory illness.

The ingredients in the Tropical Traditions Dish Liquid are as follows...
Deionized water, coconut and sugar-based cleansing and sudsing agents, plant-based surfactants, emulsifiers

Tropical Traditions Dish Liquid retails for $29.50/gallon...which it normally costs $50.00. So if you are looking to purchase some, now is the time! It's super affordable and it goes a long way.
So, in my opinion...this Tropical Traditions Dish Liquid is a pretty amazing product! I love how it works well and contains a coconut oil base. I have some friends that are chemical sensitive and this would be a great product for them as well. I would definitely recommend this product to all of my readers.
