The many uses of dishwashing liquid

Did you know that the dishwashing liquid is one of the most adaptable staples in your household stash? Because the liquid is generally mild, it is frequently a better choice as an all-purpose cleaner than other harsher chemicals. Discover the multiple uses of the dishwashing liquid, which can lend so much more help around the house than you think.


A gentle dishwashing liquid makes an amazingly effective floor cleaner. Mix 1-2 tablespoons of dishwashing liquid with a bucket of warm water. The solution can be applied on tile, marble or vinyl flooring but avoid wooden ones.

Furniture Cleaning

A dishwashing liquid functions well on counter tops, window sills and other types of surfaces like glass and plastic. Add a small bit of the liquid to a spray bottle filled with warm water, to cleanse away the dirt and grime. Next, wipe over the soapy surface with a well-wrung cloth and allow the surface to dry naturally.

Kitchen Appliance Cleaning

Appliances in the kitchen require cleaning often, as they are subject to the build-up of sticky grease and stains. Appliances such as ovens, toasters, blenders, refrigerators and griddles will benefit from the mild and friendly cleansing power of the dishwashing liquid, especially when we want to keep the finishing surfaces of these appliances intact.

Stain Buster

Oil-based stains are the hardest to remove, and dishwashing liquid which is specifically catered to remove grease may even work better than conventional laundry detergents. Dishwashing liquid also tends to be gentle enough for treating spots – even on delicate fabrics like silk and wool, which could be easily damaged by laundry detergent due to its more potent chemical composition. The method to go about this is to dissolve around 1 tablespoon of the dishwashing liquid into 2-3 cups of lukewarm water, and carefully dab on the stain with a clean cloth dipped into the mixture. Repeat this until the stain starts to disappear.

Clean Hairbrushes and Combs

Combat residue from hair grooming products like hair wax and mousse with a light solution of a few drops of dishwashing liquid combined with warm water.

Polishing of Jewellery

Our jewellery collects dirt with frequent wearing. Mix a tiny portion of dishwashing liquid with water and soak the jewellery for 5-10 minutes. If necessary, use a toothbrush to scrub out any stubborn stains.
