Dawn Dish Soap Tips

Last night while I was chatting with a neighbor we started discussing laundry.

Boring. I know.

However, we were talking about whites (I hate the dreaded whites) and I mentioned that my hubby's whites could really use some extra love - and she told me "Just use a degreaser."

A degreaser? I was thinking that I would need to go out and rummage through home depot looking for a big ole' bucket of something or other to add to my laundry - until she said

"Just use Dawn!"

Duh. Amanda. You have it under your sink. You use it on all your dishes and they are all grease free. And it is simply fabulous!

Of course I did have images of my washing machine bubbling over...


Eager to try it out - I put in a load of whites last night - added detergent, Clorox and a double swirl of Dawn and what do you know - it worked! They look a little better already! After a couple more go arounds in my washer they should be in good shape! You can also use dawn to clean out any black gunk you may have in your washing machine - just run an empty cycle with hot water and some Dawn.

I also learned that you can use Dawn to make an ice pack! Just fill a sandwich bag halfway, double bag it and freeze. The Dawn will get really cold but won't entirely freeze making it super easy to bend and fold over those achy joints. Brilliant!

So go do yourself some whites, make some emergency ice packs, have a coke and don't forget to email me about the Fall Exchange! I would love to see you all there. I am getting more and more excited as more people enter!


ps. Dawn did not pay me anything to say all that awesome stuff -
I just really love them!

Good to know. I've had several conversations lately about the inability to get 'man sweat' out of the sheets and pillow cases. I will definitely have to try this. :)

oh wow! Thanks for sharing the tip. I have a huge pile of whites that desperately need some whitening!

This sounds great; however, it says on the Dawn bottle not to add bleach. Dawn contains ammonia and dangerous fumes are released with an ammonia and bleach mixture. Just an FYI.

You KNOW I have to smile at this one. I'm just the answer to everything. =) Great tip though... I'm going to try it out with the white load this weekend.

This also works great for grass stains. I put it directly on my son's white football pants and let it sit overnight then toss in the washer and 9 times out of 10 they come out near perfect. Never thoguht to use just to help bright the whites! Thanks,\.
