Everyone knows Dawn is remarkable or cleaning dishes, but find out how useful Dawn can be in pre-treating laundry stains. You’ll be amazed.
Dawn is a product that you probably have in your kitchen, I know I do. Did you know though that you can use Dawn for more than just cleaning dirty dishes? You sure can! Sharing with you today one of those “life-hacks” that will help you in your everyday life.
Who needs multiple products when one amazing household product like Dawn can multi-task? Using Dawn as a laundry pre-treater is an awesome life-hack that will save you from: 1) tossing clothing that is too stained, 2) buying additional products and 3) convenience of grabbing the bottle and pre-treating immediately. Amazing what this product can do!
I found my bottle of Dawn to be useful for pre-treating stained laundry just last week. Have you ever had one of those days? You know the one…where everything, and I MEAN EVERYTHING just went wrong. From coffee-overflowing in my cup first thing in the morning to stepping on a spiky toy on the way to get a shower, yeah we’ve all been there. My day got a little messier as I was transferring that nights dinner leftovers to a plastic container to place into the refrigerator. I had made a gigantic pot of CHILI, yup a tomato filled dish that was saucy and oh so good! The problem occurred when the spoon I was using slipped out of the pan and KERSPLOOSH it landed in the plastic bowl splattering chili all over my shirt, it was a mess!
Luckily, I knew what to do, and that’s what I’m sharing with you today.
Apply Dawn directly to any cotton/polycotton fabric*, covering the entire stained area, and rub it in using your fingers.
Then wash it normally with Tide in your washing machine**.
Do not reapply Dawn to the same spot and wash again.
* For best results, use a little less than two teaspoons (9.5 mL) of Dawn in a top-loading washing machine – be sure not to use too much, and don’t use on delicate fabrics like silk. Spot test with a small drop in a less visible area to make sure the material will not be damaged.
** HE washing machines can be sensitive and cycle times may vary.
