    28 ways to use Dawn Liquid to make your life easier

    These are great!

    16. De-Grease Your Tools

    After you have finished your automotive repair project, soak your dirty tools in Dawn soap before you put them away to remove all the oil and grime. This also helps prevent rust from forming on the tools.
    17. Pre-Treat Oily Stains on Clothes

    For oil-based stains such as lipstick, grease, butter, motor oil, cooking oil, and some pen inks, simply apply some Dawn dish soap directly to the stain and scrub with a small brush or toothbrush until the oil is removed, and then launder as usual.

    18. Non-Toxic Lubricant

    Apply Dawn dish soap to sliding glass doors, door knobs, hinges etc. It lasts much longer than any aerosol type spray that I have tried, and it’s non-toxic. It does a great job of cleaning the parts that it’s lubricating as well!



















    19. Ice Pack

    Partially fill a strong zip-type sandwich bag with Dawn dish soap, close and freeze. The liquid soap stays cold much longer and it can be re-frozen many times. It will conform to the place you need an ice pack.

    20. Remove Paint and Grease from Hands

    Dawn soap combined with corn oil makes for the perfect paint or grease remover. Simply combine a little bit of both in your hands then rub it over affected areas. The corn oil and the dishwashing liquid both help to dissolve the grease and paint – yet leave skin soft, unlike harsher paint removers.

    21. Keep Fruit Trees Aphid-Free

    Mix two tablespoons Dawn soap to a gallon of water and put in your sprayer. Try to get spray both sides of the leaves, branches and the tree trunks. Let sit for about 15 minutes and then rinse the trees THOROUGHLY!


    22. Tub and Shower Cleaner

    Take a spray bottle and fill it halfway with white vinegar. Heat in the microwave. Fill the rest of the way with Dawn dish soap. Put lid on and shake to mix well. Spray on your tub and shower walls. Allow to sit for a few minutes and rinse away. It will totally melt all the gunk, slime, sludge and other stuff that builds up including a bathtub ring.

    23. Repel Ants

    Spray counter-tops, cupboards and any other area where you see ants with a solution of Dawn soap and water. Wipe dry. The slight soapy residue that remains will not be a problem at all for kids or pets, but ants hate it. Should you see a trail of ants, go ahead and hit them with the Dawn soap spray.

    24. Stripping Cloth Diapers

    Add a tiny squirt of original Dawn dish soap to your washer and run a hot wash, then rinse until there are no more bubbles. (Be careful not to overdo it with the soap, we don’t want any sudsy flooding incidents!) Dawn is a degreasing agent and helps to strip cloth diapers by removing oily residue. Be sure to rinse, rinse, rinse until the water runs clear!



    25. Unclogging Toilets (careful with this one)

    Clear out a clogged toilet by pouring a cup or so of Dawn dish soap into the toilet bowl, and allow it to sit for 15 minutes. Follow with a bucket of hot water poured from waist height, and your toilet should be clog-free!

    26. Oily Skin Cleanser

    Dawn dish soap makes a surprisingly great facial cleanser for oily skin. A drop or two combined with warm water will do the trick.

    27. Shower Floors

    Cover greasy footprints on shower floors with a coating of Dawn soap; let sit overnight. Scrub away the gunk in the morning with a stiff brush.



    28. And Finally…

    Here’s a brilliant idea! Need a hostess gift when visiting friends and family? Print off this post and include it with a bottle of Dawn dish soap! Talk about USEFUL ! :-)

    I once had a professional window washer tell me the ultimate window wash solution. It had Dawn in the recipe. I used it one time and my windows sparkled like jewels!

    There were a couple other ingredients in the solution but I have since forgotten them. Iwish I could remember the solution.

    Forgive me for I am a guy who's memory is as long as his . ..

    @Rickity Plumber 5. Sparkling Windows

    Try this recipe from Merry Maids: mix 3 drops Dawn dish soap in 1 gallon of water and fill a spray bottle with the solution. Spray and wipe as you would with any window cleaner

    Washing your tools is ok but be sure they're dry if you want to prevent rust.
