Why don't you use car wash to clean your dishes?

This soap is gentle enough to use as hand soap or shampoo.

It's fine as long as you don't use it every time you wash your car. I used to do that first and last details of the year. When I do my first and last detail of the season. I mix Purple power 50/50 with water and mist down my entire car soaked keeping it wet with the car hose set to mist. Once I'm done I let it pre soak for about 10 minutes then rinse it well. Then wash my car as usual. Purple Power is awesome cleaner. It's very slick. Just don't let it dry on the paint.
