Full Answer

Joy Dishwashing Liquid, first introduced in the United States in 1949, is manufactured by Proctor & Gamble. It helped start the trend of using citrus scents in cleaning products when it was reformulated to include lemon fragrance. It should not be used in dishwashers because it is designed to be used for hand-washing dishes. Joy Dishwashing Liquid contains emollients that protect one's hands from drying out. Currently it is available in a variety of fragrances such as lemon and orange. The product is also offered as an antibacterial formula in both "ultra" and "non-ultra" strengths.

Joy Dishwashing Liquid sponsored many soap operas including "Search for Tomorrow" and "Guiding Light." It is famous for the slogan "From grease to shine in half the time." In Japan, Joy Dishwashing Liquid was introduced in the 1990s and became the market leader for awhile. Proctor & Gamble also manufactures Dawn Dishwashing Liquid and many other household products.
