|Dawn versus Fairy
||[ Sunday, 13 Apr 08 | 19:12 ]
Ordinarily I don’t think there is much difference between detergents, especially when produced by the same company. This past week I’ve washed a few sinks worth of dishes here in Alameda using Dawn which is marketed by Procter and Gamble. In Spain I use Fairy, which is also marketed by P&G. Fairy consistently seems more powerful than Dawn in that I need to use less and it seems to clean quicker.
When I have some really greasy stuff to clean in Spain, I use KH-7. It’s more powerful than similar cleaners in the US. For some reason I always thought it was made by a German-based company, but their website reveals something else:
Today, KH Lloreda is the Spanish market leader in kitcken cleaners and stain-removers, with the products KH-7 Quitagrasas (Grease Remover) and Sin Manchas (Stain Remover), and it works with the firm commitment to continue offering its consumers and clients highly efficient professional cleaning products, while respecting nature and the environment.
It currently sells its products in Spain, France and Portugal. The company headquarters are in Canovelles, Barcelona province.
