Since I may have been guilty of starting this silly subject by stating that I
use Dawn to wash my car here is some of what is said about Dawn soap on
Don't put the Dawn away after the dishes are done. Dawn is great for all sorts
of other chores. Try it diluted in water to clean appliance exteriors,
chandeliers and light fixtures, painted woodwork, and more. -- -- Note:
Painted, as in what is used to coat sheet metal and plastic automotive parts. In
this case they recommend it for some of the toughest, appliances, and weaker,
woodwork. Automotive paint falls in between those finishes.
Dawn Complete is a breakthrough dish liquid that delivers excellent tough-food
cleaning technology while improving the look and feel of your hands with a
formula that contains vitamin E- and B5-enhanced microgels. Who ever thought
doing the dishes might lead to more beautiful hands? -- -- Might be gentle
enough to wash your Ford.
Make Dawn Dishwashing Liquid/Antibacterial Hand Soap part of your routine
handwashing. It's great every day and is always ready for those greasy
challenges. Tough on grease—and bacteria on hands! -- -- Should be safe enough
to kiss your car goodnight.
Dawn is the product of choice for major rehabilitation organizations to clean
oil off birds injured in oil spills. -- -- Come to think of it I haven't seen
any ducks that shine like they have any wax on them. Must be gentle or the duck
would squawk about it to the news media.
Ingredient information (other than what's on the label) is confidential. You may
want to visit the Soap & Detergent Association's website at
http://www.sdahq.org . They provide a list of general ingredients commonly used
in hand dishwashing products. Once you arrive at their site, choose Dishwashing,
Fact Sheet Notebook, then Hand Dishwashing Products. Scroll down the page a bit
and you will find the ingredient list.
Does Procter & Gamble recommend that it be used as a car wash soap, no, can it
be used to wash a car, yes. Why would they if it cut into the car wash soap
industry they are connected with? Surfactants are the main active ingredients in
dish washing soap along with oil, sometime vegetable oil, and both are used in
liquid car wash soap.
As a side note even though Dawn also contains alcohol you should not drink it,
just a thought, Windex has a higher quantity but still not drinkable. What I'm
saying is the kind of ingredients makes the product, how much dictates its use.
