Dish Detergent Substitute


You thought you had another bottle of dishwashing soap under your sink, but alas, your supply is completely depleted! Here’s what to do…

If you have a sinkful of dirty dishes and no dish detergent, use shampoo (make sure it’s the nonconditioning kind) to clean them. If you have oily hair and use shampoo specifically formulated for it, all the better. It will cut right through the oily pots and pans and greasy dishes.
