    Default Dawn dish soap

    So..... I was watching a weekly regular marketing show Iíve been watching for yearssss... This week they were on about cleaning products. In Canada most product donít have to indicate the chemicals in there products Yes new law coming in this year all products will have to now.. So seems thereís Methylisothiazolinone in dawn dish soap. Now that I know as a fact Canada will be eliminate it in all products. Itís one on their list. Irritates the skin, dangerous for the lungs etc

    So definitely no more Dawn for me. Mad at myself how I missed that.

    I’m very careful about ingredients as you know. Sadly Canada is finally stepping up to have all products with full ingredients so all American products will have to put same labels as US in Canada. I know my product I indicate every single ingredient as I want people to know what they’re eating as I want to know what I buy what’s inside too. But like you said, it’s such a mess...For sure it’s up to the consumer to read everything they buy. Never rely on a front label, organic, bio, natural etc...

    Default Re: Dawn dish soap

    It doesn’t irritate my skin at all...use it every day multiple times a day. But I also rinse thoroughly, and then rinse again. I also don’t inhale it...so lung irritation is of no concern. Additionally, I’ve never witnessed any skin irritation on any of our Bulldogs that get bathed in it...but again, I rinse thoroughly, and then rinse again.

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    Pass couple years I only wash my 2 in the summer so it’s the hose. Like you I over rinse then use a good oils so it soaks in. Just trying to avoid chemicals as much as I can...

    Personally it’s more for my dogs. I use it once a year in the spring to remove all guk then I use Castile peppermint soap. But will simply use the Castile now.

    I am sure Methylisothiazolinone has nothing on the chemicals I come in contact with at work everyday and I have used Dawn since I was a kid on dishes and sometimes dirty cars before waxing them. I do not use Dawn to bathe Chunky

    What I find to work just as good on my dogs like mentioned, organic Castile soap but I do add peppermint essential oil. Peppermint will go remove all grime. But you do need to add after the bath a good carrier oil like coconut or jojoba oil. Massage in
