    The hardest tools I have to clean are in the kitchen – my pots and pans. I have used nothing but Dawn for years. It’s the only one that works!

    We have been using Dawn for years. It’s great on oily or greasy stains in clothes.

    I don’t use a lot of tools, but my scissors come to mind. I just asked my husband and he said his sockets. He said that it’s not that it’s hard to get off, but they are always the dirtiest. And we’ve never used Dawn for anything other than dishes or for greasy stains in the laundry. You’ve opened our eyes to new ways to use it.

    the yard tools and the garden hand tools, those need a real deep clean, we use them quite often

    My hardest tool is the garden pruners, they always end up with tree sap that’s hard to get off.

    I think the tools that get the dirtiest are the garden/pruning sheers and the shovels.

    I would say my dishes are the hardest to clean but my husband would have lots of tools to clean.

    all of my husbands tools seem hard to clean. they are both greasy and dirty. there are small parts that are hard to get into to clean. some are electrical so I have to be extra careful cleaning.

    our hardest tools to clean are our wrenches, they seem to pull gunk from other objects and keep them.

    Many uses for Dawn, I am going to try it on the rims of my car!

  23. Julie Wood
    November 17, 2014 @ 2:22 am

    I never thought about using Dawn on cleaning my rims on my car. It is gentle enough and made your tires look nice and clean! I will do this and use dawn next time! I would use Dawn on my rims.

    I love Dawn dish soap and am constantly learning more uses like these. Why buy any other dish soap?

    I use Dawn, Vinegar and hot water as an all-purpose cleaner everywhere in the house.

    I use Dawn and vinegar and water in a spray bottle for my go to bathroom/shower cleaner…..

    Sockets are the hardest for me to clean. I find that using dawn straight from the bottle without any added water is the very best for cutting grease.

    My garden pruners are a pain to clean. They get covered with tree sap and stuff. I’ve never thought of using Dawn dish detergent. I’ll have to try it. Thanks!

    With six kids ,I would say the hardest thing to keep clean would be the laundry.

    November 18, 2014 @ 4:42 pm

    This is perfect- I am a huge Dawn user! It is my go-to for carpet stains! I sprinkle baking soda on a stain, let it sit 10 minutes or so, vacuum it up and then mix 2 Tbsp. vinegar with a couple drops of Dawn in warm water and scrub the stain- it hasn’t failed me yet!

    It seems like scissors are the hardest to keep clean in my house- they are always getting used for sticky purposes!

    I’ve been using Dawn soap for years, I was hooked whey I saw the commercial on tv when they were cleaning oil off of ducks, my husband uses it in the garage, uses it to clean oil drops on the driveaway and I use it to take stains out of clothes and everything in the kitchen.

    I used Dawn to clean my CATS! My indoor cats got fleas really bad, and after we gave them their medicine, I carefully sponge-bathed them with Dawn, then combed out all the dead fleas. Magic! And non-toxic!

    I also am an avid fan of Dawn. It is the only dish soap I will buy. It cleans through Everything! I use it to get stains out of clothes all the time. I love that it works so hard on stains and dishes but it isn’t to hard on my hands.

    Dawn is the only dish washing liquid I use – my mother-in-law used it and taught me to, as well – 35 years ago, and I love it.
