I have to admit, I am a bit of a snob when it comes to dish soap. I have tried many brands, but find that Dawn is the only brand of dish soap that has the best grease-fighting power on pots and pans. I also like that the bubbles stay in the sink longer, so a little bit of soap goes further than other brands.
But what are some other uses for Dawn that go outside the sink? It turns out that Dawn dish soap can be used for MANY things. Things such as grease stains on clothing. When pre-treating an article of clothing, use a button sized amount of Dawn on the stain and then gather the material together and rub briskly to allow the soap to penetrate the stain. You don’t want to use more than that though because it will suds up the washing machine! Then just wash normally.
Dawn is also a great hand tool cleaner. Simply add a small amount, scrub away the grease on the tools and then rinse. Dawn will also help prevent rust build up on the tools.
Dawn has been used to make an ice pack as well. Partially fill a strong zip lock back and put in the freezer. Dawn will stay colder longer and can be re-frozen many times.
And Dawn has also been instrumental in saving birds and other wildlife that have been affected by oil spills or other disasters.
Dawn is tough on grease, gentle on skin, making it a perfect choice in the home.
