Dawn Dish Soap is Gluten Free

Dawn Dish Soap is Gluten Free and has many uses in addition to being a dish soap!

Note:  My friend, Dianna, over at Stop Living and Start Existing invited me to a Dawn Beyond the Sink Tweet Chat at 9pm EST today (10/28/2014).  She suggested we could each write a post about Dawn Dish Soap as our blog post topic for today.  Thank you, Dianna, for the invite and the suggestion!  

Dawn Dish Soap is a staple in my home.  I use it for more than just dishes!

As you can see in the photo above, there are three bottles.  Yes, I have three bottles of Dawn Dish Soap!  The two on the right are almost both empty.  (That means it is time to add them to the shopping list!)

The smallest one (far left) is the one that I keep in my shower.  (It also goes with us when we go to resorts with kitchens.)

The middle bottle is the one that I usually purchase the 90 fl oz bottle of Dawn at Costco.  As a family of six, we go through a lot of dishes.  This big bottle allows me to use my favorite dish soap for about four to six months without having to buy a smaller bottle more often.

The far right bottle is the one that gets refilled from the Costco bottle.  It’s place is next to the kitchen sink.  It gets used daily.

I prefer the Dawn Advanced or Dawn Ultra as it does a great job of cutting grease.  No other dish soap that I have tried has come close to the grease cutting power of Dawn.  We love to occasionally cook yummy goodies that are a bit high in grease.  When doing these dishes, this is when the awesome power of Dawn is most appreciated!

My friend that is a hair stylist once told me to use Dawn Dish Soap for hair as needed.  I asked her why and her reason was the grease cutting power that will actually clean the hair.  After you use it in your hair, you need to shampoo and condition as normal.  This will help to re-moisturize the hair.

I have used it in my hair – and that of the rest of the family – after a day at the beach, in the pool, after a fever breaks or bad night sweats.  I also will use it when my hair gets super greasy.

After working on one of the vehicles, both my husband and I go straight to the Dawn Dish Soap.  While there are specific products made for the cleaning of grease from automotive work, most of those products contain lanolin of which I am allergic to and therefore do not purchase.

I just found recipes No-Grate Homemade Laundry Soap and Homemade Stain Remover (“Shout”).  Both of these recipes use Dawn Dish Soap for the grease cutting properties.

As Alton Brown mentions often in his show, Good Eats, he believes in “products that are multi-taskers.”  Dawn Dish Soap, I believe, is such a product.

What do you use Dawn Dish Soap for in your home or office?  Please share so we can learn from each other.

I found this on Dawn:  “Do your hand dishwashing liquids contain gluten? Answer: Gluten is not part of the formulation for any of our hand dishwashing products.”
