Ways to Use Dish Soap Other Than on Your Dirty Dishes

It helps with so much more than just cleaning greasy pots and pans

Dish soap (also called dish detergent or dishwashing liquid) can always be found next to the sink, but its cleaning power is incredibly helpful all over the house. It contains a mixture of surfactants that act particularly well as a foaming agent and are chosen because they do not irritate the skin. Because the liquid is so mild, it is often preferable to more aggressive chemicals. This special blend of surfactants makes detergent so effective at removing oil and grease from plates and pans. Next time you give your house a big clean, think about these new ways to use this foaming product. Look at the next page for some of the many cleaning applications for the good old detergent. This makes cleaning a lot easier and also saves you money.
