If you don't know already that Dawn is the best dishwashing liquid, then learn now. This stuff works miracles. No other dish detergent can hold up to Dawn. I've tried them all from Gain to Joy. Dawn is the only one that still has suds and cleaning power after you've washed all the dishes. You can swish your dirty water a few times and still have suds left. with other you find your cleaning power gone after a few rounds of dishes and have to continually add more. Not with dawn!

And it's the only soap that my husbands company uses for washing their greasy hands & even tools. Yes, Dawn will clean most anything and do it right the first time. even get fleas off of Fido if left on for a few minutes. Just don't leave it on too long and be sure to wash off completely cause it has a tendency to dry out Fido's skin if left on too long. But is hasn't had any negative effects on hubby's skin since he's used it daily for even a bath & hair wash for over 20 years.

Warning! If used correctly to spot treat greasy clothes this works wonders for your laundry. Just don't directly add to your washer or dishwasher for that matter. You'll still be mopping up suds next Sunday if you do. A little goes a long way!

I was so upset a couple of days ago when I went to a neighborhood supermarket and bought a twin pack of Dawn Ultra original scent. I have been buying Dawn for years and have loved how concentrated it was and how little I had to use to get all of my jobs around the house done since I've been using it for other things too, not only for dishes. When I went to use one of the new bottles, to my surprise, it was totally watered down! Not even close to the old formula. I had to use a lot more to clean and I'm so upset at the greed of Proctor and Gamble that I am boycotting the purchase of Dawn from now on. I will try other dish washing detergents that hopefully are not only interested in "making a buck" but in keeping customers for life, since I am positive that most customers will start noticing the change like I did and will stop buying this product. We are no dummies not to notice the change. I noticed it right away and you should be ashamed of yourselves Proctor and Gamble! This product now is just awful! I read other reviews from previous customers that used to buy this detergent that said the exact same thing and I am glad that I am not the only one that has noticed. Because of your greed you will loose all customers, I'm sure! You lost me!

We use Dawn to wash dishes and it does a wonderful job. It quickly cuts through the grease and helps get your dishes and utensils clean and spotless. This product is concentrated and it uses a lot less soap to get the job done than other dishwashing soap brands.

How good is Dawn at cutting oil and grease? Dawn is what environmentalist use to clean up animals to remove oil spills from their skin, fur and feathers. It is powerful enough to help clean them up and yet gentle enough to not harm the animal's skin.

I recently cleaned the outside of the windows of our home which is no easy task. Three floors and a lot of windows and despite my hard work they still looked streaked even though I was using a leading brand of outside window cleaner. Later that week I saw a group professional window cleaners working on a building and the windows were spotless. I asked them what they were using and they told me that a few drops of Dawn in water is the best window cleaner around. It cuts through the dirt and grime and removes the oils and chemicals deposited on the windows over time by pollution.

I tried it and it works wonders!

Dawn is a great soap and I recommend it as being a best in class oil and grease remover. Try it and I am sure you will like it!

Last night at work, while outside in the bitter cold I accidently splattered dirty motor oil on my Bean's Gore-Tex rain coat. Immediately, I came inside to the bathroom, spread hand cleaner all over the stains and proceeded to rinse the area clean. I figured this process had a chance at removing any visual trace of the stain because the material was Gore-Tex. And sure enough, any trace of the oil was immediately gone. But I still had to wait to be sure because the jacket was darkened where the stain was from the outside surface becoming wet. I waited for it to dry.

A while later I looked at the jacket and was disheartened to see the blotches of stain from the splattered-on motor oil.

I still had a plan that might work: In the past I have used DAWN liquid detergent to remove some otherwise impossible stains. I would try it on this. I squirted plenty of DAWN onto the stained sleeve and swirled it around the entire stain area. Then I left the coat to hang for the night.............just as I have learned to do with any other stained clothing that I use DAWN on. The next day I rinsed and rinsed and rinsed the DAWN from the area. Then I had to let the coat completely dry because of the darkness of the surface wetness.

Once it dried I looked at the area and there is absolutely no visual evidence whatsoever of any motor oil stains on the jacket.

It is a fact in my life at least..........NOTHING COMPETES WITH DAWN'S STAIN REMOVING QUALITIES. A LOT OF PRODUCTS MAKE BIG CLAIMS ABOUT HOW GREAT THEY ARE AT REMOVING STAINS. DAWN JUST REMOVES THE WORST STAINS I CAN IMAGINE........PERIOD!

Here is my advice for when you accidently stain a garment with something that you beleive will be difficult to remove: As quickly as you can get to DAWN, liberally squirt the detergent onto the stained area, swirl the DAWN into the fabric and toss it into the dirty laundry to be washed or.............let is hang overnight and rinse it in the morning and let it dry. You will be amazed.

I am a 20 year old sophomore in college, at Belmont University. I have no dishwasher, and a lot of dishes, and as I'm sure many music students can relate, absolutely no time to clean them. So, what do I do? Say for instance I eat some oatmeal out of my polished stone bowls. All I have to do is fill the messy bowl with a few drops of this, add some water, make sure that the soap is thoroughly mixed with the water, and...PRESTO! I come back a couple of hours later, and rinse out the bowl. It is SPOTLESS, SCENTLESS, and TASTELESS! This product works miracles folks, let me tell you. It makes my old dishes taste like old dishes and not last night's Easy Mac!

Dawn has a serious fan here!

I have used Dawn dish detergent for years for dishes and it's great. I've also used it for years to pre-treat grease spots on laundry. It's the only thing that works on those little spots that you get when a Chapstick goes through the dryer. It even works on them after they've been through the washer and dryer several times! It's like a miracle.

So it was the first thing I turned to when hand washing a beautiful white merino wool blanket that had a black smudge on it. I soaked the blanket first in Tide and cold water overnight, rinsed it, then doused the spot in Dawn and left it overnight. I rinsed the Dawn out the next day but there is now a pale blue spot--much bigger than the original stain--and it will not come out. I've tried many rinses with cold water, vinegar, another soak with Tide---nothing. It has not even faded.

SO--use with caution as a pre-treatment on laundry. Maybe it can't be used on wool, I don't know. Right now I'm pretty bummed.

Having spent the last several years having to buy the cheapest dish soap I could find, I questioned the claims that one dish soap could be all that much better than the other. I finally decided to test it for myself and boy was I surprised.

Often I could find Joy for a decent price, and this is the main brand I used for the last few years. Not that Joy is bad, its probably better than some, but no offense to Joy, it is certainly not Dawn.

1. I was immediately struck by the superiority of Dawn within seconds when I saw how one tiny drop of Dawn bubbled up way more than a whole pump of Joy. And I mean WAY MORE. If you're wondering how that translates into use, I probably use a third of the amount of the soap I had to use with Joy, so it goes a lot farther.

2. Logistically, this means its also cheaper (in the long run) because I buy less. On top of it the price was quite competitive when I bought it on Amazon. (See Product Info Note below)

3. I wash my dishes by hand with the hottest water I can tolerate, which at our current house is as hot as the faucet gets. Even doing that, I never really got that "squeaky clean" feeling to my dishes with Joy. With Dawn, the dishes are squeaky clean, and I've noticed it doesn't spot as much either (I tend to let air dry on a rack rather than using a towel.)

PRODUCT INFO NOTE: To those who are wondering, the product I received was TWO bottles of 24oz EACH (for a total of 48 oz). I was worried I was going to get two small bottles that totaled 24oz, as at the time the description was a bit ambiguous (for example, the price per ounce was calculated for 24 oz total, not the 48oz I received).

Overall, I would most definitely purchase this product again, especially at the price I got it for. I'm glad I decided to see if one soap could be superior to another, I was pleasantly surprised!

I've used Dawn for decades. I purchased a couple of bottles recently and find it does not get very sudsy and I have to use a ton of it to get my dishes clean. With their old formula, just a little bit went a long way and my dishes came out squeaky clean. They claim nothing has changed but they lie. My mother has a gallon of the "old" formula and I did a side-by-side comparison and the new product pales in comparison. Also their "active suds" are only better in comparison to a non-ultra competitor brand, not a fair comparison. They think consumers are stupid and for that I'd sooner buy dollar store detergent than Dawn since they are about the same quality. Don't waste your $ on what is essentially just "blue goo"

This is good soap, but I just learned not to assume amazon.com gives better prices. I paid $13.11 for this total of 48 Fl Oz and then discovered that my nearby WalMart sold 56 Fl Oz for $5.64 !
