You will rue the day you EVER got diesel fuel all over everything- do not use it! The smell is obnoxious and permeates everything- including your skin. And forget dishwasher soap. IMO it dissolves too slow/hard and is gritty.
I'm with ya 100% on this cobalt . Can't beat Dawn , if they have it in Puerto Rico . Worked heavy equipment 20 + years . Cannot get rid of diesel fuel smell . Wash clothes 3 or more times and smell is still there .
