12. Toilet Unclogger
If your toilet is clogged, you won’t have to get an expensive de-clogger. Pour a cup of dawn dish soap into the toilet bowl and let it sit there for about 15 minutes. Hold a bucket of hot water a few feet above the toilet seat and pour it into the toilet bowl. This tip should surely do the trick.
13. Eye Glasses Cleaner
With a clean cloth rub a small amount of dawn dish soap onto the glasses, and wipe it clean with a microfiber cloth. Never use rough fabrics or paper towels to clean your glasses. These items might scratch your glasses, thus making the situation worse.

In a big garbage bag, put about a gallon of water and 1 cup of dawn dish soap into it. Place your cooled greasy grill racks into it and sealed tight. Leave overnight, and the next morning, use a wire brush to scrub your grill down. Give the grill racks a thorough rinse, and they will be so clean again.
15. Concrete De-Icer
In a bucket, pour a gallon of water, 4 tablespoons of rubbing alcohol and 4 tablespoons of dawn dish soap. Mix thoroughly and pour the mixture over the frozen concrete driveway. This method is much better for your concrete than using the salt.
