We Love Dawn
Bathroom and kitchen counters and sinks
Woodwork, like baseboards, shelves, and wainscoting (Make sure to dry as you go; wood doesn’t like prolonged contact with water.)
Tubs and toilet seats.
For icy steps and sidewalks in freezing temperatures, mix 1 teaspoon of Dawn dish soap, 1 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!
Keep Insects Out
Stop insects from coming in your house: Generously rub or brush soap along the edge of your doors and windows. The insects will get stuck in the soap, preventing them from coming indoors.
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!
De-Grease Your Tools
Protect yourself before a painting project: Rub soap on exposed skin and let dry. Paint will easily wash right off when it’s time to clean up.
Wash paintbrushes: Soak brushes in warm water and soap for 20 minutes, then rinse them out.
