We do a lot more dishes around the holidays, what with all the extra cooking and baking and entertaining going on. The premium dish soap companies have caught on and have started offering limited-edition holiday scented dish soaps so that we can carry on with our holly-jolly even while we're standing at the sink, up to our elbows in batter bowls and cookie sheets. Do you switch to holiday scented cleaning products come December?
I confess that I look forward to the holiday release of Mrs. Meyer's Iowa Pine. I love how they've managed to capture a clean pine scent that somehow isn't like Pine-Sol. Apparently I'm not alone, for I just checked the Mrs. Meyer's website and Iowa Pine, as well as their other holiday scent Orange Clove, have sold out of their special cleaning sets and candles (although you can still buy the items separately).
I like having a special dish soap for Christmas. For me scent is very evocative, so the minute I smell Iowa Pine, I just start feeling in the holiday spirit. Do you switch to a holiday scent? Do you have a favorite to recommend?
