    Default Joy vs dawn vs professional soap which is better?

    Free SHipping @ $299
    Hey Guys

    After trying Dawn dish soap, am very disappointed it leaves streaks and white residue, even in tiny quantities. It also has no slip. The Joy I just bought is as good as my Unger Soap and cannot tell the difference. Do any of you agree Joy is just as good as the pricey window cleaning soap? I cannot tell the difference between the two. I really like Joy because it is cheaper and it does a fabulous job, as good as my Unger soap

    For the past couple of years, I've been extremely frustrated with Dish Soaps.
    I swore up & down that something has not been quite right... with ALL brands I've tried.

    Just today, I read about a 16 State Ban on Phosphates. I had no clue, but it makes sense...

    For the most part I use titan-glass-gleam-4.html">GG4/Ecover, equal parts. Having said that I also play with about a dozen different soaps, slips, eye of newt, bat guano, and fairy dust. What ever works on that window on that day is the best. Lets don't do this again.

    Honestly after using Dawn it was horrible! I only used 4 drops for 3 gallons and did not provide much slip. It also did not provide any suds. I then used about a tablespoon for 3 gallons and it left milky white residue. I then used Unger's soap from Home Depot and it works great, squeegee glides over glass easy and it does not leave any streaks. I then today tried Joy, a tablespoon and it worked just as good as unger. Lots of slip and no residue

    Must be something to do with the phosphate ban, a particular batch of Dawn or maybe something environmental on the windows because I just cracked a new bottle of Dawn and it works fine.

    Then again, NJ isnt on the phosphate ban list.

    I like GG4 with a dash of super slip.
