Is it ok to use shampoo to wash your dishes ?

I'm out of my normal dishwasher tabs and have to be somewhere in a few hours and don't have time to run to the store. I have shampoo. I'm assuming since shampoo is designed to remove oil from hair, it will remove the grease from my dishes.

Sure, and when you come back and mop up the suds and water that have leaked out of the machine, you'll have a clean floor too!

It will give your dishes volume and bounce!

Didn't I once see this on The Doris Day Show?

You can wash your dishes by hand with shampoo, but you would have a hell of a mess on your hands if you used shampoo in your dish washer.

Why don't you just fill up the sink with a bit of hot water and let the dishes soak a bit until you can get some dish soap or something.

I bet you are the same person who posted, "if its ok to use hair shampoo for the face?"

It's way too foamy for the dishwasher, but it works wonderfully in small amounts when you wash clothes. Go ahead, try it!

If you're going to try substituting a different detergent in your dishwasher, try a small amount of laundry detergent. It's also a low-sudsing, degreasing product.

of course its fine OP, put lots in there. Do not, really do not use the leave in conditioner.

Do your dishes have dandruff? Might need head and shoulders

Well I use Dish washing soap in the bathroom when I am out of liquid soap in the bathroom. I just dilute the dish washing soap and it works fine.

Just lather, rinse, but DON'T REPEAT!

You should be alright I use it to wash clothes when I run out of detergent, works for me.

Not only can you wash your dishes with shampoo, you can dry them with your hair dryer.

I use shampoo to wash my anus, which is a bit hairy, by the way. I find that it helps keep the musk under control all day, compared to soap. The leftover water I use to wash dishes.

by Anonymousreply 2004/10/2010

Yes. Make certain you rinse well. Sodium Laureth Sulfate is the key ingredient in any soap based product it reduces cohesion in between the hydrogen and oxygen molecules inside water thus making water wetter than normal. Shampoo is no different from laundry detergent except for perfumes , oils and chemicals used to control ph balance.

Isn't the entire idea of dish detergent that it is non-toxic if some of the residue is ingested? I don't think you can say that about shampoo.

Hysterical, R28. I needed a good laugh, thank you!

R1 All over the kitchen, out the door and into the living room. It took an entire box of salt and three hours to get rid of it all. Ah, those 70s phosphate suds!

Gee, Your Dishes Smell Terriffic!

It's not "Leftover water", R20; it's gray water and it's the wave of the future in sustainability.

Soon, you'll be serving termite fondue to your guests on bamboo plates washed in gray water. Once you're done, you'll use the same water to mist your plants, which will be fed by your fish.

Oh, and you'll wipe your ass with cloth rags and wash them, too.

We won't talk about the waterless toilet you have to crank after each dump, but the takeaway is pungent compost for your living area's vertical garden.

Why not? My former barber used to use dish soap to wash hair, so it's only fair!

Hair shampoo is awesome for mild cleaning. Not too harsh, breaks down protein.

Great for cloth car carpet and seats.

by Anonymousreply 4112/05/2013

yes, its fine! I have done it before! you might need to add extra shampoo though. it isn't as strong as dishwasher detergent. so add maybe a 1/8 cup extra. don't forget to turn it on right before you walk out the door! clean dishes are the best!

Ugh... You don't have a maid or housekeeper to do that chore?

This is in reply to virtually all of those who replied to your question: You sound like a group of juvenile buttholes! "if your dishes have dandruff...", "left my glassware smooth and silky..." Apparently you've never needed real help or been that low on money. Sarcasm was very helpful, thank you!

Oh definitely. However, since it is a shampoo, you will need to use 3 cups worth.

Good Luck!

I use Breck.

It softens the grease and gives my fine china a lustrous shine. You should see my Bob run his fingers over it.

Most soaps and cleaners are interchangable. I was out of shower gel last week, so I used CLR. lather, but it was fine.

by Anonymousreply 5402/20/2014

You can use hand soap, too. It cuts grease the same as dish detergent.
