Palmolive Pure + Clear Giveaway!

It's time for another amazing giveaway! I was very lucky a while back I saw a post about being and agent for BzzAgent! I thought what the heck, so I hoped on and signed up (let me know if you want to be one too, I get points for friends). Now it took a while to get my first product to try but well worth the wait!


I'll admit I'm a thrift shopper and usually buy whatever brand of dish soap is on sale at the time. So I thought I'm up for the challenge to try a new soap thinking what they're all the same. I am here to eat my words (and if you know me that was hard for me to type). Now with the cheap soap I end up squirting 3 to 4 times to finish 1 sink of dishes. Now when I squirted a little on my sponge I thought ok I wonder how many squirt this will take. I was surprised to find 1 1/2 half times did the job. Now if I was like my mom I would have put one squirt and filled up the sink with water, but not my style. Now I went to the store to price out Palmolive vs the cheap one I usually buy. It was about in the middle of the price range, but when I sat down and figured out how many squirts I use of the cheap version vs what I did for the Palmolive it was actually cheaper. Yes I actually sat down and did the math, hello I'm OCD you haven't figured that out until now?? Plus I'm so excited about the smell I'm like that silly commercial smelling things, except I was smelling my hands and the clean dishes ... LOL. I always thought it was a joke that it kept your hands smooth, but take it from this girl with the worst skin (thank you grandma for passing down that gem) it really was silky smooth and my hands we're very soft! You want you can come over and smell ... Ha-Ha.

Now for the fun part what you get to win! I actually have a few prizes to share, I'm really excited to share with you!

1st winner ~ Gets 3 samples of Palmolive Pure + Clean in Spring Fresh, + 2 coupons for $1 off
2nd winner ~ Gets 3 samples of Palmolive Pure + Clean in Spring Fresh, + 1 coupon for $1 off

  1. Thanks for the comment and visiting my blog!!

    I'll never forget the time my mom went to do the dishes, turned the water on and the little sprayer came on, too! My brother had gone the night before and put a rubber band on the sprayer so that the button was depressed when she turned the water on. LOL. Needless to say, he ended up with dish duty that day.

  2. First off, there is not a DARN thing funny about washing dishes, I hate it. HA!

    Anyway, I have, on several occasions, put my water running to fill the sink up to wash dishes, forgotten about it, walked out of the room, only to come back and find the water overflowing to the back of the sink and over onto the floor beside the cabinets. Grrr!

  9. Dishes story:

    When I was young my brother and I had to take turns washing the dishes. Every other day kind of thing. Well I would always wish my brother would get stuck doing the dishes on the holidays. That was the worse day you were stuck in there cleaning away while everyone was out have fun with everyone else. My brother got is a few times and I was happy those times. Mean I know.

  14. ME! I want to win!

    Okay...a funny story about dishes???

    When I was a newly married (teenager) and just learning how to do the housewife stuff, we lived in a place with no A/C. That summer I was pregnant and VERY hot. My mom asked how I was holding up, and I said "fine...I just go do the dishes to cool off". My mom was like WWWHHaattt? She said "Becky...you can't wash dishes in COLD water. You have to use HOT water to get them clean!" Who knew????

    ReplyDelete
  15. I am actually out of soap and down to rinsing the bottle and to lazy to go to the store...and you know I will have dirty dishes by the end of the night...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Girl, don't make me lick the dishes clean, LOL

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ok, you have to tell me about the Bzz Agent stuff. Sounds like fun.

    I don't have a funny washing dishes in the sink story, but I do have a funny dishwasher story.

    When I was about 15, my mom and I lived in this condo that had the worst dishwasher. The wheels on the bottom rack were bent so everytime you pulled it out, it would come all the way out, and then it wouldn't go back in. So this one day, I'm loading the dishes and the rack goes flying as I pull it out. I was so angry I said "G-d damn this dishwasher!!", and I kid you not, 5 minutes later it started leaking rusty water all over the floor. We of course got a new dishwasher which was cool, but my mom told me not to "G-d damn" any more of her appliances, and I don't think I've used that phrase since.

  18. Let's see a funny dishwashing story.. so its technically not about me but about my uncle... while he was living in North Dakota he went over to this lady's house for dinner. He told me the food looked iffy so he didn't really eat a whole lot. ( the house was way scummy) Anyway after they were done and chit chatting after dinner, she had the dog lick the dishes clean and then put them back into the cabinet!!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I would love to try the Pamolive with Aloe. I have such sensitive skin from working with all the Costco chemicals that I break out every time I do dishes.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I have a funny dishwasher story also. My husband decided to run the dishwasher for me one night and instead of using the dishwasher detergent he used normal dish soap. We were upstairs and our dog kept running up and looking at us and then running back downstairs. After the third time I decided to see what was wrong with her since she never does that. I followed her downstairs and saw that the enitre kitchen floor was covered in bubbles!

  21. I am a follower and I would like to hear more about BzzAgent.

  22. And I have your cute button on my blog!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ohhh snaap!
    I did that too Melissa! NOW I don't feel so bad...Except,I used Tide in the dishwasher and HOLY COW! I had suds rolling out of the dishwasher!lol My daughter was like "Whe'heee mom!! Bubbles"!!
    Here's one that I bet alot of Moms identify with...I done it...so when my kids tryed to pull it on me,I was already on top of the game.
    Once I got so tired of having to do the dishes,I INTENTIALLY left them in the drainer dirty,so I would get put off of kitchen duty.Instead,I got in twice as much trouble....got grounded and STILL had to do the dishes every night.
    My daughter thought she would pull that same move,and it didn't work with me either.LOL
    Ok--I'm officially getting my name in the hat.I tell everyone the exact same thing about Palmolive..I've used it for years...the same goes with Tide,you seem to use ALOT more of the el-cheap-o stuff.
    Ummmm...the button?? Gotta go find that and then check back to see what else I need to do to get my name in the hat. ;-}
    This is fun!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Am I stuttering,or just repeating myself...?LOL

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh,I almost forgot...I think another Palmolive product I wouldn't mind trying is the Palmolive Crisp Cucumber Melon...I bet that one smells good! I'd prolly wanna eat the dishes while washing them w/ that smell! HA Yummm!

    My funny dish story... I'll have to link this back to my Da he'll LOVE me going public with this one!!! My chore growing up was dishes, feeding the animals, keeping my room clean, dusting, sorting laundry.. oh wait I said "chore" huh? Nope it was my stinking little brothers who had "chore" I had "chores". So every night after dinner I KNEW it was time to get BACK to work. I'd make a trip to the ladies room before starting the soapy sudsy fun.. stay as long as I could.. maybe mom would forget that the dishes needed to be done. I did this so much that my father felt the routine fitting of a title all it's own.. DISH-a-reah!! He LOVES telling my kids this one.. nice Pop nice!

  41. Great story for you! My sister was catering my mom's company Christmas party and needed some extra help. Of course I went to help and so did my sweet husband, John. Well John was in charge of dishes while my sister cooked and I served the dinner. When I went into the kitchen I noticed that it was REALLY clean! John had cleaned everything so far and had already started a load of dishes. I was 7 months pregnant and was so excited to sit for about 10 minutes while they ate. All of a sudden I look across the room and I see bubbles EVERYWHERE! My sister, John and I all grab bowls and we are trying to keep the bubbles off the floor. It turns out that sweet John couldn't find dishwasher soap, so he used regular dish soap. I had seen this happen in the movies, but I didn't know that this could really happen. I'm telling you bubble were all over the floor. Just writing this is bringing it all back and I'm laughing so hard(tears and all)!

  47. My funny story is about fighting to do the dishes! When my boys were small my husband and I used to play fight about doing the dishes--"No I'll do the dishes" because the other one would have to watch the kids. We were reminded of this while watching our 3 year old granddaughter this weekend when we both said "I'll do the dishes". We love our kids and our granddaughter but sometimes you just need a break!

  55. I love Palmolive Dish Soap, rarely buy anything else, I have a few things that I just won't cut corners on and Palmolive is one of them(Heinz ketchup, Hunts Tomato Sauce are a couple of others). I have even been known when I am out of bubble bath to have taken a bubble bath in Palmolive, Heck Madge soaked her hands in the stuff for years made them feel younger, I am waiting for the palmolive magic to happen.
    Thanks for this wonderful giveaway.

  56. One time I was doing the dishes and my husband decided to put a rubber band around the spray nozzle, and when I turned on the faucet I got water all over me. I told him to do the dishes then!!!!

  57. I had a pot on the stove that was dirty. It had caked on mac-n-cheese so I put soap and water in it to soak. Well hubby saw the pot and the mac and cheese and thought I just made it runny so he put it in a bowl and started eating it. He nearly gagged when I told him about it. Now he asks about everypan ont he stove, lol.

  71. Ok, first things first, I love your blog, the frogs, monkeys, and adorable boys.. So cute.
    Bzzz Agent, I just became an Agent my first campaign is on the way and I am excited to get going.
    My funniest dish washing story happened to a coworker. I was the manager at work waiting for a employee to arrive so I could Go HOME!!
    The phone rings, late employee, Why will you be late I inquire...Ummmm well I was getting ready to do my dishes about an hour or so ago, and started the water running and um this girl called that I have been wanting to take on a date, Um I took the phone out on the porch to talk to her, we talked for an hour... and Ummm my house, well my kitchen, living room, they are like Ummm flooded...
    Goodness, thankfully the phone conversation must of worked because they have now been married for 6 years and have 2 little boys. Wonder if he does the dishes.
    Also I love Palmolive, have not used the pure and clean yet, my new favorite is the Oxy... it works great.

  73. Hi, popping over from SITS!

    Believe it or not, I have a dishwasher but I do handwash my good knives, big pots and most plastics, so I still seem to ALWAYS have a sink full of dishes MUCH worse than your's!!

    That first story by Amy actually happened to me too, but it wasn't dish washing related, it was at work! I went by the coffee machine to rinse out a cup and when I turned on the water I got sprayed. Now get this, of course I turned the water right off, but not realizing it was coming from the sprayer that someone had wrapped with a rubber band, I DID IT AGAIN!! Yep, turned that water right back on AGAIN and sprayed myself AGAIN!!! I don't think the prank was intended for me, and I admit, I got a laugh out of it once I realized what it was.

    My mom was always a believer of Palmolive. I usually use Dawn, and did not even realize that Palmolive had a new line! I hope I win because I'd love to try it.

  76. Stopping by from SITS and I love your blog.

    I don't have a funny story about washing dishes, but I do have one about the dishwasher. I'd had left a pan soaking in the sink overnight and of course I had soap in it. Then being in a hurry the next morning I quickly poured out the water not even thinking about the soap that I'd put in there the night before. I put it in the dishwasher and started it up then left the room. A little while later my puppy comes into the office with white bubbles all over her face. She was running around like a nut. I followed her concerned that she'd somehow gotten into something only to get to the kitchen and see all the bubbles coming out the side of the dishwasher. Now that I think back on it, it is actually funny, but at the time I was just very angry at myself.

  80. lol...no I'm not blonde! I forgot my story, good thing I'm also a follower, so I will just leave it with this post...
    My most memorable dishwashing experiences...watching the pistons basketball games from the reflection in the microwave while I washed dishes. My father would watch the games doing his book-keeping bookwork at the kitchen table. I on the other hand had to do the dishes..every night. So for me, I would sneek a peak at the game behind me. I use the cheap stuff right now, not proud, but trying to cut corners...but now I may have to take your "report" into consideration. thanks again,
