NOT RECOMMENDED FOR DIRECT USE IN THE WASHER BUT PERFECT FOR CLOTHES THAT HAS TO BE PRESOAKED. Here is how to use Dawn dish soap for laundry purposes.
1. DAWN MAKE WHITES WHITER
Just washing your whites will not maintain their colour. After a while, they will start taking on another colour. No one likes wearing a white shirt that looks yellow. To make your white bright, refresh, and smell great. try doing this brilliant trick.
Gather all your whites, Toss them in a bucket, turn the tap on the warm water. To this add 1/4 cup liquid bleach. Then here comes the miracle worker, Dawn.
Pour Dawn into the bucket, the amount you pour should be based on the pile of laundry you have. You will be surprised at the amount of sud it forms so just a dab will do just fine.
This makes it easy for the washing process. Allow soaking for 10 minutes before washing in the washer. You can also do this process with soiled coloured clothes.
2. PUT YOUR HANDS TO WORK IN A BUCKET
We all know about the vintage way of washing. This is a great method of washing especially for whites. Washing with your hands prevents clothes from damages like shrinking and stretching and best of all maintaining their colour. This is the way the Amish make their clothes so beautiful and clean.
After soaking is complete. Get your hands in and start rubbing the linens together with the palm of your hands. Do this for a few minutes. Your whites should be looking much better by now.
PREFER TO USE A WASHER?
At this point, you can toss them in the washer (AFTER SOAKING). I must confess, I love the old vintage way but the washer is just faster.
You will not need to add any other detergent as this will cause excess sud. Simply toss the clothes in the washer. Do not pour Dawn directly in the washer unless measured carefully which should be 1 tablespoon for large loads.
Put the cycle on rinse. When that is done, place it in the dryer. For best results, hang your whites on an outdoor clothesline to dry.
Sunlight makes whites stay white longer. Isn’t nature wonderful? This clever no dryer drying trick will not only make your clothes fresh and clean but will make your next electric bill way lower.
The summer is a perfect season for outdoor clothes drying. Why not give it a try.
3. REMOVES FOUL ODOR FROM TOWELS

However, you must have tried many expensive fabric softeners, trying desperately to bring back your towels to when it was new. Here is a simple way to clean your towels.
