To start you will need a container for the powerwash spray. If you already have a powerwash container at home you can just use that.
If not amazon sells some good containers to use. The important thing to look for is a continuous spray bottle.
I recommend regular dawn dish soap (the blue kind) to use.
As far as rubbing alcohol the higher the percentage the better. I use 70% rubbing alcohol.
Lastly, if you want to make your Dawn Powerwash smell good you will want to use some essential oils.
I prefer to use lemon essential oil since it smells good and helps get rid of grease.
Making Your Dawn Powerwash Refill
Step 1: Add 2 ounces of dawn dish soap to the spray bottle.
Step 2: Pour in 1 oz of rubbing alcohol to the bottle.
Step 3: If you wish to add essential oil to the dawn powerwash put in about 10 drops. It will give it a nice citrus smell.
Step 4: Very slowly add about 12 to 16 ounces of water to the bottle. This will depend on how big your bottle is. If you add it too quickly you will get lots of bubbles and it will over flow.
Step 5: Replace your top and gently shake the bottle. You are ready to use it!
Using the DIY Dawn Powerwash
To use the powerwash just give it a little shake to make sure that all the dawn and rubbing alcohol is mixed up.
Then spray on your dishes and let them soak for a minute or two if they are really bad.
Scrub away the grime and baked on food with a scrubby or a dish cloth.
The Dawn power wash can also be used on other things like cleaning the sink, wiping down countertops or even on stainless steel.
