Great stuff for a number of uses. Always have a couple of bottles on hand.

They use it to take the oil off of birds after an oil spill.

Love the stuff - it has so many uses! Here are some more:

- a capful added to your car's gas tank improves fuel consumption
- good substitute in recipes when you are out of eggs
- 1 drop in the charging port of electronic devices improves the charging speed
- 1/2 teaspoon in alcoholic beverages lets you pass breathalyzer tests
- great firestarter when you don't have tinder

Don't do those. I was just joking.

I try and keep about 10 bottles in stock all the time.

Use one, get another one, and keep them rotated.

I saw the news story on that, I think it was the Exxon Valdez oil spill. They were cleaning the sludge off the ducks with Dawn, wouldn't use anything else. That was the best commercial ever.

I use orange Dawn as bodywash/shampoo/hand soap/stain remover. Use it on the dogs, too. I used it to cut grease when I worked on cars. I used a dilution of it to kill mites on plants. Dilute and add vinegar to clean animal accidents from carpet or as an all-purpose cleaner.

Dawn is awesome.

Just don't use it for the dishes or dump near a drinking well; use as a gun cleaner OK then dump in a safe area. That's if there is any truth to this link.

Dawn is added to the water in my pin tumbling. Cuts all the old case lube and really gives good results in the cleaning.

They use the same antibacterial ingredient as found in virtually all dish soaps, bath soaps, and many, many other products including trash bags. You'd have to become a hermit to avoid it.

Dawn is the best, I like others besides just the blue. My current preference is the clear Pure Essentials.

In my industry, it is used for PCB decontamination and cleanup.

Dawn is great for Decon. In hazmat and WMD training that is what we use to wash off the ickies. When it comes to forensics it is what is recommended when cleaning equipment for the collection of evidence. The stuff just works.

I have used it to remove oil from oil soaked birds due to a oil spill. Also used it on birds that have been trapped on glue traps that people set out to catch mice. It is a life saver.

Yes, I do save wildlife

If you read the article, that is in the anti-bacterial soap, not the original. Solution, don't by ANY anti-bacterial soaps.

There are some products, like WD40 and Dawn, that have a multitude of uses, other than for what they were intended. Dawn is great. More expensive to buy but for everyday dish washing, you only need a teaspoon. Great for washing ducks too. Windex makes a great muzzle loader cleaner solvent and bathroom cleaner.

We buy it by the big pump jug. As others have said, it's great for getting grease stains out of clothes. If I've got to paint metal that hasn't weatherd, I use it to clean off the oil film.

Used it for washing greasy clothes,scrubbing garage floor,as a shampoo and hand washing,a small drop on wood screws..think I even used it to was dishes once

In all this time,for the price,I can't think of anything else that even comes close.Even used it my my resturants over the commercial products available.
I use original Dawn to wash out my vehicles coolant system. Works awesome.

First released in late 1973, I was living in St. Pete, Fl in early 1974 when Proctor & Gamble had people hanging small sample bottles on everyone's front doors. Been hooked on it ever since.

Another good use is for all you mechanics out there. If you happen to be working on your cars and don't have hand cleaner, Dawn works great for that. Straight out of the bottle, put a small amount of water and work into a thick lotion like mixture. Rinse and repeat if necessary.
