These are eight things you can do with dish soap besides washing up
Dish soap: everybody owns a bottle of it, no doubt. Even if you own a dishwasher, you can’t do without some dishwashing liquid in case you have to do some quick dishes or have to wash something that isn’t dishwasher-proof. But did you know there’s so many more things you can do with this soap? Dish soap is amazing for degreasing, which makes it very useful for other chores in the house as well.
Here’s a list of eight things you can do with it.
1. Kitchen cabinets
Sometimes, when you’re cooking, you might spill or splatter something onto the kitchen cabinets. When this happens, you can just grab a microfiber cloth with some dish soap and water on it and wipe away the grease and filth very easily. This is especially useful for wooden kitchen cabinets, because this way you won’t ruin the finish on the wood.
2. Stains in clothes
When you’ve spilled something greasy on your clothes it’s important to remove it as quickly as possible. Drip some dishwashing liquid onto the stain and lightly rub it in. Leave it to soak for a little while and then put the item of clothing in the washing machine.
3. Stains in car seats
It’s not unthinkable that your child is eating something in the back seat and spills something on the car upholstery – this simply happens from time to time. As with tip #2, drip some dishwashing liquid onto the stain and clean it with a damp cloth. The soap will remove dirty and greasy stains without damaging the fabric.
4. The stove
Instead of some expensive cleaning product to clean you stove with, you can just as well use a few drops of dish soap to remove food and grease from your stove. Drip some of the soap onto a sponge or cloth and use this to clean your stove.
5. Fruit fly
You can very easily get rid of fruit flies by mixing together some dishwashing liquid and vinegar. You can read all about this particular trick right here.
