Dawn dish detergent is an amazing product. The grease removing property is great for dishes, but it really shines as a delicate wash for clothes. This product saved a white cashmere sweater which had been caught in a machine door. - I put the Dawn on the sweater straight from the bottle -- in 20 minutes it had lifted the oil out of the sweater - I removed the mess with paper towels and the black oil was gone. I then washed the whole sweater to remove all the Dawn: It came out good as new, super soft and no trace of the oil and grease -- which was a blessing as it was a very special Christmas gift!
