Did you know Original Dawn Blue isn’t just a dish washing liquid? I’ve been using Dawn for years to wash my dishes and also to clean our windows and mirrors (for just pennies), but what I didn’t realize was that Dawn can also be used to control dog fleas, clean soap scum in your bathroom, remove spots on your laundry, and make amazing bubbles. And that’s just a few of its uses.
And bonus, these new uses will also cost much less than the store bought version.

Apparently, there is a difference in effectiveness between the non-concentrated Original Dawn Blue (in the picture above) and the Dawn Ultra (in the picture below)? I didn’t even realize there were two variations until I read the comments of one of these posts and a reader claimed that the non-concentrated version works better than the Ultra.
Personally, I don’t know. Unknowingly, I’ve been buying the Ultra version and it’s worked just fine on my dishes and windows. I did search for the non-concentrated version and the only store that carried it was Walmart. It is much cheaper per ounce than the Ultra, 6 cents per fluid ounce vs. 11 cents per fluid ounce, but whether it is any better, I’ll have to test it out.
