Am using Bio Homme (not sure about spelling). it's bio degradable and not that expensive - about $3 plus a bottle from NTUC.

I use UIC dishwashing liquid detergent. Both my helper and my hands are allergic to soap, so I usually stick to UIC which is not too soapy when rinsing. It does not make my hands itchy, like some other brands, even when I use my bare hands to wash. Occasionally, I do switch to Mama Lemon to try other brands.

Using ultra Joy bought from HDB provision shop, recommended by the shopkeeper for non biting on hands. Mama Lemon is too strong for our hands, it causes the fingers to peel badly. Ultra Joy is very concentrated but it does not bite the fingers. A bottle can last a long time because we will mix with water and put into another bottle. Then we use the bottle mixed with water instead and keep the concentrated one.

I'm using mama lemon due to sensitive skin too but mama lemon is rather concentrated - kids sometimes say smell detergent in cup, so I set aside another bottle of diluted mama for washing non-oily stuff.
Am trying out UIC now.

After using many types of dish washing liquid, I am now using UIC lime scented dish washing liquid.
My maid also likes this brand as it has a nice smell and washes of easily.

I'm used to Mama lemon too.....but I do find it a little too harsh.
Ever considered changing for a better one but because of the different habits between MIL and myself, gotta drop the idea cos' too wasteful.

I like to rinse away all dwl from the sponge after washing. Before washing, I'll rinse the sponge once (to clear off any dirty stuff first) before putting fresh dwl on it. But my MIL loves soaking the sponge with dwl after washing, ends up it stinks due to the dampness.....guess gotta wait till she stop meddling in my kitchen :shrug:

Hmmm....but seems like quite a few others are using UIC.....maybe can try.
