    Dawn soap

    Hi
    Not sure if this is the right spot to post this or not. If not, I'm sorry in advance. My wife was reading tonight about the many things you can use the original Dawn dish detergent for. One of the things said to squeeze it in the middle of the pool and it will cause all the old sun screen and fine dirt that's in the pool to go together and move the the edge of the pool for easy clean up. It also said "plus it will leave the pool extra sparkling". Has anyone ever heard of this before and if you have, has anyone ever tried it?
    Just wondering before I tried myself.

    Re: Dawn soap

    I know this was discussed a few years ago. I think the general consensus was why would you want to put soap in your pool?

    Soap is not good to add to the pool.

    Re: Dawn soap

    The OLD formula of Dawn dish detergent was useful for many things. It was actually kept in the Emergency Room to help wash gas and motor oils off patients. BUT....its not the same anymore. Probably since they removed all the phosphates.

    I say you're too late to test the idea. Sorry.

    Wow, think with the pool store could have been telling us back in the day. Here add this Dawn soap to your pool. Oh no now your phosphates are too high in your pool. Here buy this $50 bottle of potion to get it back down

    Re: Dawn soap

    Thanks. I was thinking as such. I remember my grandad years ago would buy loads of bottles of dawn (the old original) when ever he visited America as they didn't sell it in Canada.
