    I am really excited to try most of these. The only one I think I couldn’t do is replace my shampoo!

      LOL, I’ve been washing my hair with blue Dawn for over a decade. I have long thick, hair and it is super healthy and doesn’t require any conditioner! My hair is never tangled like it used to be after using shampoo. Whenever I went to get a haircut, the hairdresser couldn’t believe how healthy my hair was and she was very surprised when I told her what I used!

    What a ton of great uses for Dawn! I learned a lot reading this post. I love the bubble recipe!

    We use it for (#8) making bubbles. The bubbles last longer for the kids and are larger than regular bubbles you buy at the store. I’ll need to try #3 with the Dawn and vinegar. Thanks!

    I like some of these tips. I knew about the oil spills having Dawn to clean up the wildlife,and I think that is a part of why I use Dawn exclusively.

    I definitely use Dawn for my hair for when it gets too greasy! It works well in place of a clarifying shampoo if one is in a tight spot. I recommend using a good conditioner near the tips of your hair to prevent it from becoming itchy, though.

    I love the suds that I get when I use Dawn dish detergent. They last a long time and my hands always feel softer.

    Oh my gosh I knew about the fleas on dogs and that cuts grease but never knew you could unclog things or even use it on oily skin how awesome. thank you for sharing!

    I LOVE Dawn Dish Soap… Our Cat somehow jumped into A Barrel of Oil somewhere & We used dawn dish soap to wash Her… Bathing Her WAS NOT Easy, but Needless to away, It Worked pretty Well, also Took Her to The Vet (She Was Fine)… But, Dawn Dish Soap Works Great for Cutting Grease… Even Motor Oil…

    I use Dawn detergent for all sorts of things also. Other than dishes that is even as a laundry pretreater for greasy stains.

    Great tips! Some of these I’ve never heard of. We have a couple squeaky doors/cupboards, I will have to try use Dawn on them to get rid of the squeak.

    It’s the best stain remover for laundry I’ve found

    These are great tips! I’ll use it to prevent poison ivy next time!

    I have used Dawn on my dog for killing fleas. It worked great! I was so happy I knew about this, because my dog gets deathly sick from any flea treatments.

  27. Liz Barnett (
    July 15, 2014 @ 1:37 pm

    You can also use it to kill stink bugs! I’d capture one with toilet paper, throw it in the toilet, squirt a little Dawn on it, and flush. The Dawn disables it so it can’t swim back up and crawl out! Gross, but true.

    We use Dawn to bathe our dogs in! Vet recommended, just make sure you condition them with whatever conditioner you have on hand afterwards!

    Thanks for all the wonderful tips. I love Dawn and this even makes it better. Didn’t know a lot of these things.

    I had absolutely no idea that Dawn could do some of the things you have listed. I can’t wait to give it a try on our squeeky back door. If it works, and I’m the one that fixes it, my husband may faint.

    We use Dawn for everything at my house!! I even make a spray for the plants to kill the little aphids and other buggies

    Our household already uses Dawn but not all the products shown above. I will look for them next time I shop for dishwashing soap and give them a try!

    I like using Dawn as it works best on dirty stinky utensils. i like the way it works and all all the bad odor just gets away after one wash.

    I am going to have to try these out. Thanks for sharing!

    What a great list! Pinned! I purchased a small thing of Dawn last week. Next week husband and kiddo will be at church camp so I will be doing a lot of cleaning. I have hard water stains and white floors in the kitchen that even bleach has issues with cleaning. I have a list of things to try with Dawn and now I just added some more!

    My husband only likes to use Dawn because he says that it cleans better than other similar products.

    I just bought some today because I read that it works wonders on a whirlpool tub including the jets. I am so glad to read that it works for bathing dogs as well! All the dog shampoos I have tried in the past smell terrible, so this will be a great alternative. Thanks!

    I have always been a big fan of Dawn, mostly due to it works and its reasonable with it price. I have heard of many of these uses for Dawn and actually have used it for many things other than just washing dishes. Thanks for sharing.

    I have used Dawn for cleaning for quite a while now but you have some great tips I have never heard of! I love #7 …. when I open the dishwasher or oven it takes a bit to clear up and my kids think it’s quite funny;0)

    Thanks for sharing all of these great uses for Dawn. We always use that brand because it is so great to cut the grease on dishes and clothing stains!

    I was a mechanic on trucks came home like grease pig every night. Used Dawn because it cut Grease but after a while using it everyday it broke my skin out in to sores thought it was diesel oil but it was the dawn!!!

    I have totally done the bubbles one, however I NEVER knew it could unclog a toilet. No joke we just took our toilet apart yesterday because the kids clogged it up.
