Cutting grease

People swear by Dawn power dissolver. However, I can't buy it anywhere? Why? Is it deadly? Has it dissolved people? On the Ace Hardware website people are lamenting not being able to find it in their stores. Seems maybe I can buy it by the case? !!!

So who knows anything?

I don't use Dawn. Is power dissolver different than regular dish soap? When I shop the next time, I will look, and get back to you.

Dawn Power Dissolver is different from dish soap.

I couldn't find it in my supermarket or several others. I finally found it at Home Depot and bought a half dozen bottles.

I bought it at my Ace hardware store last year. I'll have to check it out next time I'm in the store.

Where you find it depends on where your store stocks it - if they carry it.

It could be with the dishwashing liquids, among the oven cleaners, or mixed in with the things like Comet, Ajax, etc.

And, stores move things around without notice. The first time I saw the Reynold's Handi-Vac at Wal-Mart - they were in the cookware area - when I went back to buy one a few days later I couldn't find them. A couple of weeks later I ran across them by accident - on the other side of the store mixed in among the Glad food bags ...

I use Krud Kutter to remove built up grease. Works great. Wal-Mart carries it.

Greased Lightning kills grease around the kitchen. It also leaves a streak free shine on stainless steel apliances.
