How to Make DIY Dawn Powerwash Refill

Dawn Powerwash is a spray dish washing liquid that is used for washing dishes and for general cleaning. It is more than just dish soap and water, and it is great for dishes, general cleaning, and even pretreating laundry. The refills are pricy, but this hack is easy to do with just three ingredients and costs pennies per refill. You can make as little as 2 cups for one refill or a gallon to save for later.

OR Take your empty 16 ounce Powerwash bottle and pour about an inch of Dawn dish soap in the bottle. It’s about 1/4 cup, if you want to actually measure it. But seriously, there is no need to. I then added about a tablespoon of rubbing alcohol. Now this is the tricky part, very slowly add water to fill the bottle. If you fill it too fast, the soap solution will make a LOT of bubbles. If that happens, just let the bottle sit for awhile until the bubbles break up. Once the bottle is full, put the lid on and gently swirl to combine the dish soap and water. I think if you added the water first, then the dish soap, it wouldn’t foam up so much in the bottle. The problem doing it that way, is you’d have to measure out 13 ounces of water in the bottle first, then add the alcohol, and top it off with the dawn dish soap.
