I was first introduced to the wonders of Dawn Dish Detergent in January of 1984. bob had a 24 foot cabin cruiser, see below..... Each week end, I laid around in the sun getting tanned and he cleaned the boat with Dawn and Clorox and the boat just sparkled. He taught me this, if it is greasy, stained, glass, or a boat.
Just Dawn It!

For sparkling glass, Dawn it!
Glass topped tables? Slidling glass doors? Oil lamp chimney? Glass animals?
Dawn It.... he even washes our cars with it, but the trick to that is two small drops of Dawn in 4 gallons or water. Swish it all off with the suds, spray it clean and wipe with an OLD, very OLD towel that has lost all its Terry... if it is a new one it leaves terry junk all over the car. (we use our old pool side towels, the sun eats the terry off really fast)
|See all the glass???|
To clean the glass doors or table top, make suds with dawn, use an OLD washcloth and wring it as dry as you can, wipe off the dust, dry with a very old dish towel OR paper towels. it will gleam.
If you have been blessed with a dishwasher, you can't use Dawn and don't need it, since you can put everything in the dishwasher and let it do the work.
(do not put the car, boat or table in the dishwasher, silly)
PS I have never owned a dishwasher and neither has Bob, except for the two legs and two arms kind, which is ME.
for those of you blessed with a dishwasher, I saw this on Misus Fixit
Mix Borax and Baking Soda 1/2 and 1/2 in a jar and shake it. Pour this in your dishwasher detergent side and add white vinegar to the rinse side and Voila. Cheap Stuff for all of you blessed with dishwashers, the electric kind.
