If you asked me to recall scents from my childhood, Palmolive dish soap would be on the list. I don't remember if it was my mom who used it, or another close family member, but the smell of original Palmolive brings up nostalgic feelings in me every time. With it's deep emerald green color and memorable phrase, "Tough on grease, Soft on hands," Palmolive is a classic---and for good reason, too.
There are lots of uses for this timeless household product: from making bubbles for kids to ridding your dog of yucky fleas, Palmolive is great to have around the house. I like to use it as a beauty aid. My friends and I have really been getting into vinyl nail wraps lately, so I like to use it when I'm prepping my hands.
I found Palmolive at Walmart on Rollback---yay! Just an FYI, the original Palmolive may be in a different spot than the other scents of that brand. As you can see from the photo, all the other scents are at the right of the picture, while original Palmolive is at the top left.
Speaking of Walmart, make sure to enter the Palmolive sweepstakes where you could win a $2,000 Walmart gift card and other weekly prizes!
Since Palmolive is tough on grease, it's a great product to use to prepare my hands for nail wraps. It's important to wash off the oils from my skin and nails so the wraps will stick better.
I can be assured my pretty manicure will stay on for a couple weeks when I prepare my hands first. I've never really been a nail girl---with nine kids, it's sort of hard to keep your nails nice. However, with these great vinyl nails, I'm able to do all kinds of homemaking tasks without ruining my nails---even dishes!
I also like to keep Palmolive in the bathroom for washing liquid makeup off my hands. I like to use a really good quality foundation, but the drawback to that is it's hard to wash off! Palmolive attacks it and softens my hands in the process!
