While we don’t advocate using dish soap as a substitute for laundry detergent, Fairy can be a very helpful pre-treater for clothing stains like tomato sauce, blueberries, and grease. Here’s how:
- Apply Fairy directly to any cotton/polycotton fabric*, covering the entire stained area, and rub it in using your fingers.
- Then wash it normally with Daz in your washing machine**.
- Do not reapply Fairy to the same spot and wash again.
When stains happen, pre-treat them with the power of Fairy.
*For best results, use a little less than two teaspoons (9.5 mL) of Fairy in a top-loading washing machine-be sure not to use too much, and don’t use on delicate fabrics like silk. Spot test with a small drop in a less visible area to make sure the material will not be damaged.
**HE washing machines can be sensitive and cycle times may vary.
Dishwasher detergent is specifically created for use in the dishwasher. One of its most important features is suds control. Dishwasher detergent also helps give water the properties it needs to loosen stuck-on food particles and greasy residues without leaving water spots behind. It even has ingredients that protect your dishes from the effects of heat and water over many cycles! Too much foam from washing up liquid could weaken the washing action and cause the dishwasher to overflow, which could damage it. Try Fairy Complete Pacs. They combine the best of Fairy powder and gel into one pac that can power away stuck-on food.
