Did you know Dawn dishwashing liquid isn’t just for dishes? It cleans windows and soap scum, controls dog fleas, removes spots on laundry, and so much more.

I’ve been using Original Dawn Blue for years to wash my dishes, but just discovered it is capable of so much more. It cleans our windows and mirrors (for just pennies), controls dog fleas, cleans soap scum in your bathroom, removes spots on your laundry, and makes amazing bubbles. And that’s just a few of its uses.
And bonus, these new uses 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.
