I’ve had Honest Company dish soap for a long while now, and it was on my list of things to share with you about that I would NOT recommend. And then I realized that others must have felt similarly, because the bottle design AND the formula changed.
So I ordered the new Honest dish soap, and have been using it for a few weeks. The price went down (actually, I think the price, itself, stayed the same, but the number of ounces in the product increased). I’m going on memory so somebody correct me if I’m mistaken about that.
I really like the improvements made to the formula of the dish soap. I think it cleans great now and the scent is also really nice (I tried lemon verbena).
The packaging is another story. Aesthetically, it is also a big improvement. I love that the bottle is tall and also clear. It has a really fresh, really pure look and the graphics are better than the old design. The problem lies with the hole where the dish soap comes out. It’s too big, and so dish soap pretty much spews out of it every time you use it. I have more dish soap than I did with the old design, but it’s getting used at a faster rate because every single time I use it, even now that I know to be careful, more comes out than I want or need.
So would I buy the product again? It’s hard to say. Again, I think the formula works great, but in order to not be dissatisfied overall, I’d need to move the contents into an entirely different container. And if I’m going to go through all that hassle, I’ll probably just buy something different altogether. But that’s just me.
If you want to try the Honest Dish soap, I recommend that this item be one of the + 3 items in your bundle due to it’s low cost. You can have up to 3 +3 items included with your order, and those items get marked down by 25%. This is the place to put your lower cost items.
I had a commenter once advise me not to always think that anything cheaper than $7.20 (that’s the per item cost for your budle items) needs to be +3, and I think she was really on to something. She said that she adds up the total cost of the items in her bundle and if the total cost is greater than what she is paying for the bundle (bundles are $35.95) then she is satisfied that she got a good deal. With more and more items available that are under $7 retail, I actually think she’s on to something, because I have quite a few of those items that I love…more than the +3 spaces I usually have to offer.
But with all of that said, at $3.95 the Honest Dish Soap is one of the very cheapest items on the entire site. So I would firmly say that this one should go in your +3. If you need to put some low priced items into your bundle, at least save those spots for items that are $6.95 or even $5.95. You’ll get a better overall value. 🙂
