After I wrote my review about [Ultra Dishmate Natural Almond Dishwashing Cleaner][1] yesterday, I was a bit taken aback to discover that I had never bothered to do a review about an old friend, ***Dawn Original Dish Detergent***.  Shame on me, because ***Dawn*** has been a faithful friend in my kitchen almost dating back to the bright blue product's introduction in 1973. 

**Many Reincarnations**

***Dawn Original Dishwashing Detergent*** is one of the signature products of Procter & Gamble and contains no phosphates.  It has even been used extensively by international organizations of dedicated rescue-workers to give gentle, lifesaving baths to poor, frightened aquatic creatures who have been the victims of marine oil spill disasters.  Many other alternate household uses have been discovered for this wonderful dishwashing detergent which has been reincarnated in other forms including:  ***Dawn Direct Foam, Dawn Plus with Power Scrubbers, Dawn Hand Renewal with Olay Beauty, Dawn Plus Bleach Alternative, Dawn Plus Baking Soda Alternative, Dawn Plus Vinegar Alternative, Dawn Plus Odor Eraser, Dawn Plus OXI, Ultra Dawn, Dawn Pure Essentials, Dawn Botanicals***, and ***Dawn Power Dissolver***. 

**A Good Value**

Prices may vary from region to region and deals are available through sales and coupon promotions, but ***Dawn Original Dishwashing Detergent*** is so efficient and does such a good job that it almost always is a bargain.

**MY VIEWPOINT:**

***Dawn Original Dishwashing Detergent*** is still a good cleaning option that we can use with a clear conscience.  In its 37 years on this planet, this product has become a classic.  The name ***"Dawn"*** on dishwashing detergent is like "Sterling" on silver.

I have used the original Dawn dish detergent for many, many years. It was the first and only dish detergent I had ever used until about a month ago. and it should've been even before a month ago. For the last year, maybe two, I've noticed that Dawn has changed. The suds go away not even halfway into my washing dishes. I am left with just plain water, no suds whatsoever. So I decided to write the company and ask if they changed the formula. They didn't respond to my email. After about four or five weeks I got a letter in the mail from them saying that their new formula is proven to work just as well as it always did, but we might notice less suds, but not to worry, it does work just the same. I had told them I wasn't going to use it anymore after years and years of buying it. They sent me a coupon for a free any size bottle of Dawn. Nice of them yes, but I just told them I wasn't using it anymore. I did go ahead and get the giant bottle and figure I will use it for other cleaning projects but I already have switched to something else. Very disappointed in their new change!

    Comments about Dawn Original Dish Detergent:

    I use Dawn dish soap for more than dishes and it never disappoints. No other brand compares when it comes to cutting through grease. Washing dishes is never fun but at least it's easier with Dawn. I also use it to get grease stains out of my clothing before laundering them. I have even mixed it with water in a spray bottle as a safe way to kill pesky beetles that were killing my plants. I love this stuff.

        Consistently strong degreaser. Mild scent. Not a lot of product is needed to clean a load of dishes. Definitely my go-to dish detergent.

          I have used Dawn Dish Detergent for many years now. It cuts through the grease and leaves my dishes clean. It doesn't dry out my skin at all. I also use it when I am washing my car.

                My favorite brand of dish soap. It can be used for ANYTHING. Not only does it clean dishes to my standards, but it cleans my dog to my standards too! Powerful cleaner yet gentle on animals. Its a MUST HAVE in my home. Forget all the other brands!

                    Dawn takes grease out of your way...even on the toughest, nastiest, god awful grills. We use this in a spray bottle mixed with viniger and it cuts right through the caked on mess. This is the only thing that indeed comfortable using on our grill. I will not use oven cleaner as I do like like having all of the chemicals near/in my food.

                    The picture shown here is the clear Dawn but it says Original. The original blue is in darker not clear SO I will review both. The darker blue in the hourglass bottle is my favorite. Both are great for dishes but the old dark blue is great for so many other things. Both will remove grease stains from clothes equally well. The old hour glass bottle does so much more. Add just a drop or two added to vinegar and water will permanently remove so may stains from clothing and carpet especially good for pet stains. One or two drops added to a spray bottle full of water , will remove aphids from your garden along with a lot of other pests. Get too much color in your hair? If you color your hair and it's a little brighter than you want , wash with a little dawn it will dim the color just a little. Hit face book or pinterest to find a dozen different uses!

                    Comments about Dawn Original Dish Detergent:

                    I have used original dawn for as long as I can remember as it is what my mom always used as well and I have found out as I have tried all of the good smelling and lotion type of dish washing soap, that well, it really does work better than any of the others, no matter what they try to claim. The bottom line is, if you want your dishes clean with a small amount of soap and you want some serious grease fighting power so that there is no nasty feeling greasy residue left on any of your dishes, well then the original dawn blue soap is the one that you should go for. The slogan always says one drop of dawn and grease is gone and this is completely true. You can do a whole tub of dishes while using so little amount of soap, so you really do not have to go out and buy it all of the time which is great for the pocket book. It is easy to rinse off all of your dishes and nothing else works like it, it is the only soap that I will ever use in my house again.
