Unexpected Uses for Dawn: Garage Edition #DawnBeyondtheSink

This is a sponsored post with Dawn and Double Duty Divas.  All thoughts, opinions and efforts that went into cleaning are my own.

Dawn is my go to when it comes to washing dishes but it has also become my go to for so many other items including clothes. However, today I am going to share with you 2 unexpected uses for using Dawn Dish, Beyond the Sink and in the garage. I’m a do-it-yourself gal and as much as those tools belong to my husband they also get used a lot by me. I prefer to keep them without all that lovely grime.

Unexpected Uses for Dawn: Garage Edition

Wheels and Tires

Use Dawn on tires.

Remove grease and oil from your car or bicycle wheels by adding a teaspoon of Dawn to a gallon of hot water. Dip a soft sponge into your bucket, squeezing out any excess water and suds, and scrub the hubs until all the grease has been removed from the surface. Rinse with clean warm water and dry with a soft towel.

Greasy Tools

Use Dawn on tools!

Add a teaspoon of Dawn to a gallon of hot water. Use a dishrag or sponge and scrub away any grease or oil from your tools. Rinse them under running water and dry with a towel right away. Note: Do not allow them to soak!

I love Dawn and how well it works on SO much more than dishes! I've used it to wash my car, and my dog! (not at the same time of course lol)

You can use it for SO many things! Thanks for sharing these ideas. I didn't know the tire one.
