Contains bleach Based on the package ingredients list and other package claims, some detergents include bleach in their formulas. While the presence of bleach has not seemed to act on the baked-on soils in our tests, it might help with tea or similar stains.

I used it for hand washing dishes, but nothing came clean easily. Plastics were so heavily scented after washing, I threw them away. Ended up using it for washing the countertops, light mopping the floor, and things like garbage cans. Did leave a nice scent.
