So what's so special about dish soap? Thanks to its grease-cutting power, our dish soap can be your secret cleaning weapon that is sitting right by your sink! We've said it before, but we'll say it again. The more you minimize the need for multiple products at home, the less waste you create, the less clutter you make, and the more you can spend time on things you love.
Here are 5 clever uses for dish soap that we love:
1. Clean Patio Furniture.
Add a few drops of dish soap to a bowl of warm water, and use it to wipe down your patio furniture. Rinse clean with the hose.
2. Protect Your Plants
Put a few drops of liquid dish soap in a spray bottle with water. Mist house plants to kill and repel aphids, mealy bugs, and spider mites. Spray and wipe kitchen surfaces to repel ants.
4. Shower & Tub Cleaner
Fill a spray bottle halfway with warm vinegar. Fill the rest of the bottle with dish soap and shake well. Spray on your tub and shower, allowing it to sit for a few minutes before rinsing away. For tough grime, let the solution sit on your shower floor or tub overnight and wipe away the next day.
5. Laundry Stain Remover for Oily Stains
For oil-based stains such as grease, butter, lipstick, motor oil, cooking oil, etc., apply dish soap directly to the stain and gently scrub until oil is removed from clothing.
