    Is there any dish soap out there that is not bad for the environment?  I was looking at some articles that were saying all sorts of terrible things about my favorite soap Dawn.  Read one article that told me how to make my own.  No I don’t think so.  So what do you folks use??

    Dawn is used on wild animals in oil spills to clean them up.  Pretty sure it’s safe.   Aileen and the gang

    Hey Slim, I agree with Eddie. That’s why we use Dawn because of the use on oil spill animals.

    Interesting.  I use Dawn to clean my mountain bike because of the sudsing action that it haves.  I don’t know if the use on cleaning up oil spill animals is a real indication of it’s effects on the environment.  Might be that it’s just because it cuts oil and grease well.  I don’t know????  Plus they are dumping it down the sink into a treatment center and not into a septic system or the like.  Not trying to be contrary or anything just wondering.

    Are you concerned with the residue, packaging or effects on your body? I can’t find anything negative about Dawn.

    I think you would be safe to use it.

    Kimberly, did you plug Dawn into their search box?  I tried and didn’t get any results.  Just thinking about being as environmentally friendly as I can.  We have used Dawn in the house kitchen for years but with all the talk of bio friendly tank treatment I was just wondering.  I know that there are some available and not much more expensive then anything else.  Amazon has a brand called Planet Ultra.  Ginie brought the subject up when we were discussing Wale X Bio-Pack, RV Digest IT and such for the BW tank.
