We all know that dawn is a great dishwashing soap for washing pot, pans, plates. But it can be used for so many different things. I think all the REST of the stuff it does is what makes it really extraordinary! I will outline all the best and most useful hacks that you will use daily that will make your life so much easier.



Cabinets are hard to clean. Not only does your kitchen probably have a ton of them. Grease and spills from your kitchen tend to stick to the wood, covering them in a nasty film. Thankfully, there’s no better grease fighter than dish soap, so a few drops of this in a bucket of hot water should do the trick.



For every one that wears glasses will love this. When your cooking, baking, using the dishwasher and that steam hits you, your entire glasses gets foggy and you have to stop multiple times to wipe them off which can be annoying. Simply get a cloth and put one drop of dawn on it then just wipe the lens down with it,  both inside and outside.


Grease stains

That shirt is not ruined forever. Just rub the spot with dish soap and let it sit overnight before washing as you normally would. You can also use a toothbrush to get it out if you’re in a hurry.




The rest of your appliances, both large and small, can also benefit from a simple wipe down with dish soap and water. Just mix some daw with water an spray your appliances with it and give it a wipe with a cloth.



Many people report that washing with Dawn helps reduce the severity of the rash and that it clears up faster.  You can’t get the same effects with regular hand/body wash because those soaps don’t have the oil-fighting properties of Dawn, and will just spread the poison ivy oil around as you wash.


Cleaning air condition filter

You can also use dish soap to clean the foam or metal mesh filter on an air conditioner. Soak the filter in warm water mixed with dish soap, gently scrub with a toothbrush, then rinse and dry. Clean the filter once a month during the summer for cleaner air.


Cleaning your Blender

Before you just rest the blender in the kitchen sink and leave it till later on, just pour some dawn in its and full it halfway with hot water, then use it like your mixing something for 30 seconds. You can now just wash it out with some water and you’re done. The dawn will lift any grease that’s inside if it had any.



Sidewalk De-icing

For icy steps and sidewalks in freezing temperatures, mix one teaspoon of Dawn dish soap, one tablespoon of rubbing alcohol, and 1/2 gallon hot/warm water and pour over walkways. They won’t refreeze. No more salt eating at the concrete in your sidewalks!


Clean the windows

Add a drop of liquid dish soap to a pail of warm water and with a cloth, give your windows and mirrors a good wipe down. It lifts oily fingers stains right off! Follow with a dry microfiber cloth to buff it clean


Kill those bugs

Fill a spray bottle most of the way with warm water, then squirt in a generous helping of dish soap. Shake until the bottle is foamy, then spray.

It will kill the bugs without spreading nasty poisons all over your kitchen or bathroom. You can use this mix for roaches and wasps, even spiders!
