    You've made me think now op, I've always assumed Fairy Liquid was mild detergent and use it for nearly everything. (Because one bottle really does last about ten times longer than ownbrand).

  • I've been reading a bit about saving money on cleaning products recently and keep seeing something along the lines of, "clean using a solution of water and mild detergent."
