Even with vaccines going around and restrictions lifting, people still have an appreciation for cleanliness. Surprisingly, no one on TikTok or Instagram can shut up about the Dawn Powerwash Spray — but with good reason.

Doing dishes is a nightmare. However, if you look up the 36.8 million TikTok videos under #dawnpowerwashspray, or even the 164 million search results under #powerwash, you’re bound to find a new technique for cleaning with this stuff. Whether you’re the kind of cleaner who flat-out washes your dishes or does a light scrub before sending them to the dishwasher, the Dawn Powerwash is right up your alley.

Not going to hold you — it’s sheer magic. The directions on the bottle simply say “spray, wipe and rinse.” While that seems too easy to be directions for last night’s greasy pasta sauce pan, it’s true — and it works. Not only does the Dawn Powerwash Spray make washing dishes easier, but you can actually use less water than you would with regular dish soap. Plus, people have been testing its power on tires, stovetops and more. Since this bad boy’s formula cuts through grease five times faster than your everyday dish soap, you have multiple ways to cut through grime while saving water.

18,000+ Amazon shoppers give this a 4.7 out of five-star rating. Meanwhile, 2,000+ shoppers from Target and Walmart have left reviews as well.

“The soap is superior to any other,” one Amazon shopper, who left five stars, noted in a review. “I even use it as a pre-wash for stains on my clothes. There’s nothing it hasn’t removed, but the pump is kind of a hassle, especially when you’re cleaning several items. So I stopped refilling it and just kept the soap in the refill bottle.”

A shopper who left a review on Target’s website mentioned how they clean their gas stovetop with the Dawn Powerwash Spray.

“I used the Dawn ultra platinum power wash on my gas stove. My husband doesn’t always clean up after he fries bacon. This product cleaned my stove and my stove grates better than any product I’ve ever used! I highly recommend this product for this use as well as [for] dishes.”
