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.
Is it ok to use shampoo to wash your 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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hair shampoo is awesome for mild cleaning. Not too harsh, breaks down protein.
Great for cloth car carpet and seats.

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!

Most soaps and cleaners are interchangable. I was out of shower gel last week, so I used CLR. ....no lather, but it was fine.

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