dawn powerwash dish spray

Ever been excited about dish soap before?! 😆

Ya, me neither! I mean I’ve been impressed by certain seasonal scents and always seem to switch between different brands, but this new Dawn Powerwash dish spray soap has been on my list of favorite things to talk about lately and I can’t recommend it enough. I’m fairly certain that is the definition of adulting – getting excited about cleaning products!

P.S. Dawn is NOT paying me for this honest product review, and they also didn’t supply me with this dish soap. I bought this myself and was so impressed by this product that I had to share.

But seriously, this Dawn Powerwash spray is my jam! 💃

And I know I’m not alone as lots of us on our team and so many close friends and family member of mine are now on team Powerwash, too! HA! The smell is so fresh and clean, and of course, it cuts grease like a champ.

I find the spray form to be super convenient and logical when quickly washing dishes by hand throughout the day as well.

Turns out Dawn Powerwash dish spray has many other household uses:

My husband found it to be super effective when scrubbing out our stainless grill. Dawn Powerwash is a great stain remover on clothing, too. I have removed chocolate, grease stains, and even sprayed it on my son’s baseball pants. I’ve also used it for quick clean-ups on our upholstered couch, and rugs as well.

Here are the main reasons Dawn Powerwash dish spray has quickly become my new favorite cleaning product:

  • It does an impressive job at cutting through grease and getting dishes clean even with just one spray of foam. The spray function is so convenient and actually makes washing dishes go faster.
  • Dawn Powerwash smells awesome! It sort of lingers after washing dishes and makes the kitchen smell fresh and clean after cooking.
  • There are other helpful uses for this versatile soap spray. As I mentioned earlier, it’s an awesome stain remover for clothing, upholstery, and rugs.
  • It’s a refill system. Instead of throwing the entire bottle away, you can simply use refills for the bottom portion.

Where can you buy Dawn Powerwash spray?

I personally buy it at my local Costco in-store as there’s a starter set with 2 additional refills for as low as just $9 if you can get it on sale!

Prefer to shop online? You can pick Dawn Powerwash up at the following online retailers:

Could you hack this idea by adding Dawn liquid soap to a water bottle?

Well… possibly. I actually tried this idea by adding the last tablespoon of Dawn dish soap I had on hand to a water bottle, filled the rest with water, and tested it. The result is that it did work, but not exactly the same.

You could maybe play around with the amount of soap used. I noticed right away though that the fresh scent I love isn’t the same. But this could be a more frugal option to consider in a pinch!

washing dishes with Dawn Powerwash dish spray

Dishes are not my favorite chore, but this makes it better!

I feel like I can never keep up, but I’ll take anything that can make washing dishes by hand easier, more manageable, and pleasant. Between my favorite dish spray, my beloved Scrub Daddy sponge, and the best ever roll-up dish drying rack, my dish washing game is STRONG! 😂

    I find my air fryer gets really greasy and even though I hand wash it with regular blue Dawn, it just doesn’t seem really clean. Definitely buying this as it seems to cut through grease. Thanks for the tip Lina!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes, I clean my air fryer with this and works great. Thanks!

  2. Evie

    Does everyone know they can use a clear spray bottle you can buy at the store and make their own blend with dish soap and water,add a little bleach or vinegar if you want. We have been doing this even before this was invented.

    • James A Stiner

      Yes indeed, reuse a spray bottle, add 2 tablespoons of Dawn, one tablespoon of bleach and fill with water. Then you actually save money,

      • anareads09

        Don’t ever mix bleach and Dawn! It creates a toxic gas that can literally kill you.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing! I did try something similar and mentioned it in this post. Adding vinegar is a great idea!

    • Lana

      We have been doing that for years with Seventh Generation free and clear. We don’t want a fragrance on our dishes.

    • Susan

      If you read article she said she tried that way too.

  3. cwescott54

    It is the best!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing!

  4. Leavesbegintofall

    This cleaner and the power mr clean are my absolute favorite cleaners!!! They do such a good job!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing!

  5. Em C

    I love using this soap in conjunction with my silicone scrubber. The scrubber doesn’t hold soap on its own, so it’s great to be able to spray it directly on the dishes. The only downside is the price, but I might try the DIY version when my current bottle runs out.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh good idea, thanks for sharing!

  6. Michelle

    We use this for camping! It’s great to spray and set then wipe it out. This way I am not gun king up our camper sink.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh thanks for sharing michelle!

    • rocme

      Oh, that’s a great idea for our camp stove!

    • Katibell

      Good idea!

  7. Kathryn

    I think I am the only person who does not like this spray! We tried it but it’s too chemically for me. I also feel like I can’t get it completely off Of some surfaces good enough. I used it on my air fryer and after rinsing for what seemed like forever… I could still smell the soap when I cooked things for over a week. Yuck!

    • Ka Rena

      I am with you. I do not like the smell. It does linger but not in a good way. The smell is overpowering and gives me a headache. Honestly, I do not notice much of a difference compared to washing with regular Dawn. I really wanted to love it like everyone else.

      • Jody

        I don’t like the smell of the regular one either. The Apple scent is a little better IMO.

    • Bunny

      Yikes Kathryn. I wanted to buy this because my air fryer gets so greasy and I find it hard to get really clean. But the idea of my food smelling like soap turns me off. Maybe I’ll try a DIY version and see if that works.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh darn, thanks for sharing your thoughts on it!

    • JackieMN

      You are not alone! I don’t particularly care for it either, I don’t think it does anything differently than using just plain hot water and dish soap does. It gets used up faster and is more expensive too. I also feel like I can’t get it off as well and it leaves a film, as soon as I would heat up a pan, it is all I could smell. I have the apple scent, which can be really over powering when you spray it but it doesn’t smell a lot like chemicals. I’m not a fan.

    • Steph

      You are not the only one. I purchased it after it first came out and rarely use it. Only if I have a pan or something where it is baked on. But even then I would rather put dishsoap and hot water in the pan and soak it.

  8. Jackie

    Second the airfryer thing! Mine did the same and I figured it was me not rinsing enough or just spraying too much but after reading this now I know it wasn’t just me. Yes, the heat of the air fryer made it more potent and it did lingered for a few days. I even turned the airfryer but it self to dry with no food and still it smelled

  9. Casey

    I love it! We have the green apple scent and it smells very nice.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks Casey – I haven’t smelled that one yet!

  10. heartwood78

    Works great for cleaning my white converse or Sperry shoes. Just spray them and let sit a couple hours, toss them in the washer and they come out so sparkly white!! Love it

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh I love that! Thanks for sharing!

  11. K

    I hope you all know that Dawn charges more for this product just to add water.. which you can do yourself with any dish soap product and a spray bottle. Just saying don’t waste your money, just do it yourself

  12. RabbidBunny14

    I re-purpose old bath and body works foaming pumps for almost everything in my house years. I fill about 1/3 with soap and the rest with water. Works great! I’ve used it with dish soap for easy one-off dishes (or when I don’t want to have to sick my hands in the water). I also refill them with normal hand soap for the bathrooms. Soooo much cheaper than buying new every time. I even reused the foam pumps to make it easy to wash the baby with shampoo and body wash!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Great ideas! I love that idea for baby body wash. That’s so smart! Thanks for sharing <3

  13. Tia in FL

    Did a home test (sponsored by Dawn) for this a few weeks ago. Gave it a thumbs up for performance and a thumbs down for price, $5 in Walmart. Too many other things I already buy that can do the same thing.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing Tia!

  14. laby

    I got this on sale at Costco a few weeks ago. It is a bit strong smelling but not too bad for me tolerate. I don’t want to waste so I only use it on the worst, most stuck on things that would normally take a lot of scrubbing to clean, like the starchy mess left behind after boiling potatoes.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing!

  15. Reggie

    Too expensive for convenience. You can make same with Walmart brand (3times strength of Dawn) for significant savings, but rinse after use.

  16. Kathy

    I love this spray bottle and I too have the green apple. It’s quick and easy and saves on using the actual dish soap for quick washes.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes exactly! Thanks Kathy!

  17. Ziggy

    I LOVE this stuff, but haven’t used it on dishes. I use it for the stubborn air vents, and the kids’ tub. They half clean it after baths, so when I go in for a weekly clean or biweekly (lol) it’s a little ew. This gets it right off. It’s so strong, I may even try it for the oven.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh interesting thanks Ziggy!

  18. Sam

    If you make it your self, like some have mentioned, how often do you replace it? Do you dump it every day?

    • Jackie

      Just like the store one you use it until it’s gone then make it again

  19. JMMPA

    I use it to clean the metal filters in my stove hood. Works great!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh good one!! Thanks for sharing!

  20. Sara

    Yaaasssssss!! I love this too. I still have my regular blue dawn but this is now always in the kitchen also.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ya same! Thanks for sharing Sara!

  21. Sallys

    I also used this for greasy air filter and to clean 20 years of grease buildup on cabinets over my stove. No other product ever cleaned the grease buildup so well, I am very happy with the product. I told my family and friends and felt crazy for being so excited about soap. I have done refilled bottles of foaming soaps and nothing works for me like this stuff. I got the 3 pack at sam’s. Thank you for the post. I am going to try it on my daughter’s make up covereded masks!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Haha! I can relate to randomly talking about soap with my friends and fam 🤣 I agree it’s similar but not the same!
      Oh and great idea on the masks 👍

  22. Carolyn

    I agree. I love it. At first I balked at spending extra for watered-down dish detergent, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. It works well, and I love the convenience. In addition, after I’ve used my sponge to wipe what I’ve sprayed, it holds enough soap to wash two or three more items. I did try filling the bottle with some regular Dawn and water, but I didn’t get the foam the way I can with my foaming hand pump soap. Soooo – I’ll pay a little extra foe the refills. I really enjoy it.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes!! So agree thanks for sharing Carolyn!

  23. KarenB

    I love it!! It last awhile as well!! I buy at Sams Club!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I agree a little goes a long way. Thanks Karen!

  24. Court!

    Aldi had their own version of this like a year or two ago and it was so cheap and I loved it! Such a bummer they don’t carry it anymore

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh interesting!

  25. Selma

    Hated this stuff. I actually returned it. Such a strong chemical smell.

  26. Ana

    On the topic of cleaning air fryer, try cleaning it with disinfecting wipes . They work like a charm for me.
