Dine & Dish with Dawn #PGMom {#giveaway}

One June day, (on the streets of Toronto), folks were invited to enjoy some free poutine, in exchange for agreeing to wash their dishes with Ultra Dawn dish detergent.


Some fellow P&G Moms even got in on the fun!

My kitchen is a bit of a Dawn dish detergent snob - it is the only brand which I'll use.  I've even converted my mom, who was loyal to another brand for decades.  Our favourite is Mediterranean scent.   Dawn dish detergent not only smells fantastic, it gets the job done.  

Ultra Dawn Giveaway!  
Canadian readers can enter to win a Dish Giveaway Package valued at $50, including plenty of Ultra Dawn and Dawn branded dish cloths.


 Disclaimer: I am a P&GMom and as one, I receive special perks. Please understand that by entering this giveaway your information will be shared with a PR agency in charge of prize fulfillment should you be a winner. Opinions expressed are mine, yours may differ. Remember that you may enter at multiple blogs, but only win once. Good Luck!

Don't think it is a secret but I like to rinse the dishes first before washing and some with food stuck on I will soak in warm soapy water before washing so it is easier to clean.

No secret really, just elbow grease and dawn!

For really stuck-on food/grease, I will fill the pan/pot with hot, water and some Ultra Dawn and then put in a dryer sheet and leave to soak. Usually works well!
