Original Blue Dawn: 6 Ways to use in the Commercial Cleaning Business

Sharon’s Cleaning Tips

I had to laugh when I read about the Original Blue Dawn dishwashing liquid. What a versatile product! I think it can clean just about anything, but for the moment I’m focused on how we can use it in the commercial cleaning business.

Not surprising, but use Dawn to clean the windows. Here’s a recipe from Merry Maids: 3 drops Dawn in 1 gallon water. Fill a spray bottle (or bucket) with the solution then spray and wipe your windows clean.

How can you rid your office plants of insects such as aphids, spiders, mites and mealy bugs? Easy. Use a drop of Original Blue Dawn dishwashing liquid in a spray bottle filled with water and mist the plants with it. You’ll soon be saying bye-bye to those plant insects.

Have an ant problem in your office? Dawn to the rescue! Simply spray areas where you see ants with a mixture of Dawn and water then wipe dry. The slight leftover residue of the dishwashing liquid is a deterrent for ants – they absolutely hate it!

Do the toilets ever get clogged? Pour a cup of Dawn into your toilet, let sit for 15 minutes and then follow with a bucket of hot water poured from waist height. This will clear that clog out right away!

Need a non-toxic lubricant? Once again, Dawn can be used to lubricate door knobs, hinges, and more. (And it will put a shine on them as well!)

As I mentioned, Dawn is quite a versatile multi-purpose product. Merry Maids recommends using a drop of the liquid in water to clean ceramic tile and no-wax/linoleum floors. It’s also great for bathroom counters and those woodwork baseboards and shelves.
