Growing up I can only remember ever seeing dawn dish soap in our house. It is awesome for washing the dishes, clean them the most easily especially if you soak. But dawn can be used for a lot of other purposes. I use it to get out grease stains around the house and in clothing, I use it as a cleaner, wash dogs, and mix with vinegar to make a cleaner. Dawn and vinegar with some water is the PERFECT way to clean your make up brushes!
