Dawn Dish Soap Hacks

1. Make a Gel DIY Ice Pack with dawn

You can use different size baggies to make different size ice packs. Fill your baggie with dawn dish soap, squeeze out as much air as you can and seal it. Place it in the freezer for 1 hour or more. The longer it’s in there the more solid it will become.

Pull out and use as an ice pack for aches and pains or put it in your cooler. If used as an ice pack be sure to place a cloth between the pack and the skin. These are reusable too, so just put them back in the freezer when you’re done.

2. Use Dawn as a Paint Remover

Have paint on your hands?

Use Dawn soapy water and it’ll clean your hands right up. You can also just squirt a little soap directly onto your hands, rub it in, and rinse it off.

3. Clean Oily Tools with dawn dish soap

Dawn cuts grease and oil. Mix Dawn and water to make a sink of bubble solution.

Wash your tools, rinse, and dry off.

4. use Dawn to removed Burned Food

Sometimes you wash a pan or run it through the dishwasher and there are still some tough stains that you can’t get off. Got burned on food? No problem…

Soak your pots, pans, and bakeware in soapy water. Let soak for 30 minutes or overnight for tough burned on food. Wash and use a scrub pan to get the grime off.

5. Lubricate and Clean Door Hinges to get rid of squeaky doors

Put some Dawn on a washcloth and rub the hinge to lubricate it and get rid of squeaks. You can also clean up the black grease around the door hinges as well.

6. Get rid of Driveway & Garage motor Oil stains

Squirt a little Dawn directly on those oil spots in your driveways and garage floors. Let it sit for 15 minutes.

Use a scrub brush to brush it into the cracks and crevices.

Rinse with water. You can get rid of excess oil stains this way too.

7. Use Dawn as a Grill Cleaner

Make a multipurpose cleaner of 2 cups clean water and 3 Tablespoons Dawn, and add it to a spray bottle. Use this to clean your grill grates by spraying it on the affected area and your grates and letting it stand for 15 minutes.

Scrub with your grill brush and rinse. The left one is the before, the right one is after…

Got build-up and grease stains? Place your grates in a tub of water and add half cup of Dawn. Let soak for 8 hours and scrub and rinse off.

Other Blue dawn dish soap hacks include:

You can use a small amount of Dawn for some of these hacks as little as a teaspoon of Dawn dishwashing liquid.

One thing to keep in mind is not to mix white vinegar and a little bit of Dawn dish soap. The cleaning properties cancel each other out and you’re not achieving anything. You can mix baking soda and Dawn dish detergent as they’re both a base and clean well with each other. This mixture makes a great soft scrub. Dawn also works well with hydrogen peroxide. Dawn is an easy way to remove so many things and it’s a great way because it’s inexpensive.
