Dawn is a very versatile cleaning agent, and you can clean almost anything with it, even your dog if you want to. It may be a little bit more expensive than the other cleaning agents out there, but it’s worth the extra 2 or 1 dollars that you would pay.
Most time, supermarkets will have a day in the week when they have sales going on, you can always check to see if they have it on sale. Other than that, I will prove to you and show you in this article why you need to have it in your house and the many ways you can use it.

After a big dinner, the stove will be really messy, and you cant just use water to wipe the stove off; that will only leave marks and make it even worse.

Make Your Own Insect repellent
If you see you have insects coming in your house, and you know where there entering from, just create a mixture of hydrogen peroxide with the dawn. You can buy a spray bottle, or if you have a and empty bottle, just use that one. Spray it where ever the insects are, and if you see the insect, just spray them.
Clean your driveway
If you’re a do it your self person, that means you will work on your car yourself. We might spill oil on the garage floor or on the driveway, and we know that will leave a mark for days if its not cleaned up properly. Get a brush and a bucket with some dawn a brush it away.
It might take a few tries, but dawn is the best thing to use to get rid of the oil without using a power wash on the floor or driveway.
Poison Ivy blisters
If your kids or anyone is playing outside one day and they start to complain that their skin has blisters and stuff, it can be that they have made contact with poison ivy and had no idea.
You may not have the correct treatment at the time to help them, but if you have dawn, you can quickly wash off the skin with it to prevent it from further spreading deeper into the skin and preventing more discomfort.
Stickers and Labels
If you have bottles that you want to re-use but the labels are hard to come off, and you don’t want to put things inside it with the wrong label on because someone can use it for the wrong and bad thing may happen.
Here is what you need to do, just wet the sticker with some dawn and leave it for about 5 minutes, then go back and just wash it off with a sponge. The dawn will break down the glue.
Wash Your Car
Grease will be on your car all the time, but you might not see it, but its there.
If you like to wash your car at home, then you need to use the best product that removes grease, dawn dish soap.
Especially those rims will need this to make them look better and remove that awful brake dust from the rims.
Not all of us will have icepacks in our fridge just for emergencies.
You can make your own with dawn and a ziplock bag. This will even work better than what you would buy and place in your fridge because it will hold the temperature longer and relieve the pain better till you can go to the hospital or till whatever pain stops.

Clean Kitchen Backsplash
If you love cooking, then the backsplash behind your stove will be really greasy.
Wiping it with just water and a paper towel won’t work, You can use a multipurpose cleaner made with the dawn.
Clean Grease Off Hinge
If you use wd 40 on your door hinges, you will see some grease marks on them.
As I said before, you can use dawn Instead of the wd 40. You don’t have to scrub the marks off your hinge, just apply some dawn to a cloth and wipe them down.
This will break down the marks on the hinge and have them looking new again.
Clean Work Tools
The way your tools look and how you keep them tells a lot about a person.
I was going through my tool bag and didn’t like how some of the Allen keys and wrenches look plus some other stuff.
If we do not use them for a while they will get stuck and cannot work properly, so we usually apply WD 40 to them.
The WD 40 will leave grease on them, and it will cause a build-up over time.
Soak them in a container with water and 1/4 cup of dawn. This will clean them and also make them work better.
Remove Paint Off Your Hands
I just recently build a fence in the back yard so when the kids are playing outside, they won’t go on the street.
The raw wood didn’t look that great, so I decided to pain it. I’m a messy painter even if I wear gloves. It still gets on my hand, and it’s hard to remove without the right chemicals.
I said to my self, dawn is great on removing grease so it most can remove the paint.
I pour some on my hands and wash it off under some hot water. It came off in one go.
Unclog your toilet
Whenever you have a clogged toilet, or want to clean your toilet, pour some in it.
Dawn is excellent with degreasing stuff; it has powerful de-greasing agents in it. Just pour a half cup down the toilet and give it a few flushes.
Use like Wd 40
If you have a squeaky door and you don’t have any Wd 40, don’t worry if you have dawn at home it can be used to do the same thing, and it doesn’t leave any grease behind. You can also use it to loosen old screws that are hard to get out.
