!970 ,s or 1980's TV commercial
Pretty certain it was Palmolive Dish soap. You're soaking in it. I remember the commercials.
Palmolive ... they have always been about softening hands while you do dishes.
The soap dish you are talking about could be Palmolive Dish soap. The commercial was very popular during the 70s and the 80s. You can buy one of the product at http://www.colgate.com/app/Palmolive/US/EN/HomePage.cwsp.
Palmolive... Do as Madge says and I still do... Enjoy your day
