Are the perfumes in dish soap safe? Can they cause allergic reactions?
The safety of the perfume, along with all of the other materials in our liquid dish soap, has been thoroughly assessed to assure that the product is safe to use as instructed on the package.
Also, the perfumes in dish soap should not cause allergic reactions. If you don’t suffer from a pre-existing allergy with perfumes, you should not develop an allergy from our products.
However, if you have a pre-existing allergy or suspect you have a perfume allergy, we recommend that you talk to your dermatologist.
What happens if dish soap gets into your eyes, or is swallowed accidentally?
The product can cause serious irritation upon prolonged contact. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately and thoroughly with plenty of water for several minutes. If symptoms persist, seek medical attention.
If you accidentally swallow dish soap, immediately drink water to dilute the product. Do not induce vomiting. If symptoms persist, seek medical attention.
Can I wash my hands with Dawn?
Washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds is recommended by the WHO as an important practice for maintaining hand hygiene, which can help control stopping the infection. If you don’t have any hand soap, you may use Dawn. Dawn is formulated to wash dishes, so if you suffer from dry or cracked skin or any redness, avoid using the product.
Can I wash my surfaces/doorknobs/bathroom etc with Dawn?
We would recommend the use of products specifically designed for surface cleaning (such as Microban, Mr. Clean, Swiffer), however if you don’t have these to hand, Dawn will do a great job of removing dirt and grease from any surface.
Can I wash my food/toys with Dawn?
Whilst Dawn is not designed for washing fruits, vegetables or toys, it can be used to clean these items. We recommend using a small amount of product and rinsing thoroughly with water before consumption or providing toys to your children.
Can I combine Dawn with other cleaning products?
We understand you have creative ways to clean around the home, and know Dawn’s grease-fighting power can have many great uses besides cleaning the dishes. No matter what you’re using Dawn to clean, please remember never to combine Dawn with other cleaning products. Combining two cleaning products together can cause reactions that can be harmful, so like all cleaning products, please use Dawn by itself to get the job done.
