Dishwashing detergent is an indispensable tool for housewives and owners. Every kitchen has one, even those with a dishwasher.

Dishwashing detergent helps to quickly clean dirty plates, forks, cups, etc., but it is not the only possible use. Honey told us how else you can use it to make your life easier.


Pour a little dishwashing liquid into a bucket and fill it with hot water to get an effective cleaner that will make your floors shine.

Shower stalls

Soap suds and hard water stains leave shower stalls with dirt that can be very difficult to remove. However, dishwashing detergent can save you from this problem.


Just like your shower stall, you can clean your entire bathroom with dishwashing detergent. You'll be amazed to see how clean your bathtub, tiles, sink, and faucets will stay.

Windows and mirrors

You can save money on window and mirror cleaning sprays by using dish detergent instead. First, soap the surface with a damp cloth and then use a glass scraper to remove the foam.

Stains on clothes

Dish soap usually contains a degreaser to effectively remove grease from pots and pans. This means it's great for grease stains on clothes. Simply apply a few drops of detergent to the stain and rub before washing.

Oil stains on the road

The degreasers in dishwashing liquid also work on oil stains in the garage or driveway.

Kitchen sink

You can wipe down the sink with soap suds after each dishwashing, or add a little baking soda to the detergent and effectively remove any remaining dirt.

Kitchen cabinets

All greasy, dirty kitchen cabinets and shelves need is hot soapy water.

Stone countertops

Stone countertops are very easy to damage, so you should not use abrasive materials or vinegar, for example. Fortunately, however, you don't need to buy special cleaning sprays, as ordinary dishwashing detergent can do the job just fine.

Outdoor furniture

If you haven't wiped down your outdoor furniture in a while, you'll be surprised how well it looks after a wash with water and dishwashing liquid.


You can use a solution of water and a few drops of dishwashing liquid to clean most jewelry. Immerse your jewelry in it for about 5 minutes and then rinse with water.
