Is Laundry Soap safe to use for Car Washing?
No, according to Consumer Reports, soaps made for household uses (such as laundry or dish soap) can strip protective waxes and coatings. They can cause eventual harm to your paint job.

NO but i do anyways and the paint on my bumper is peeling off now lol....so i wouldn't. it may be because the bumper is made of plastic tho ANSWER: Dishwashing detergent is …a low level caustic detergent and is probably the best thing you can use as soap for your car. RULE #1 for washing cars is using "car soap"... NOT DISH WASHING DETERGENT. it may make your car germ free, but who has the money to re-wax their car every time they wash their car. it's made to cut through grease so you better believe its going to take the wax right off (even with a poorly done wash job) then your car is unprotected, so i think it's safe to say that it's NOT safe on your car...if you're like me and don't wax or care about your cars paint job because its not a Benz or BMW then go ahead and drizzle it all over your hood to get the love bugs off lol but don't come crying to me when your paint starts bleaching because you took the wax off that was protecting your clear coat which was protecting your paint.
yes you can i wash my dads truck and my moms suburban all the time with it when we run out of car wash stuff...
Absolutely not. It will foam up and start leaking out around the seals of your dishwasher door.
If you wash a lens cloth with normal laundry soap will it harm your eyeglasses in any way when you use the cloth to clean the glasses?
Not if you rinse out all the detergent residue from the cloth before drying and using it.
Babies have much more sensitive skin than adults. A strong laundry soap might leave residue on clothes. THis residue could be uncomfortable or dangerous for a baby.
That is because a very small residue of soap can remain in clothing after it is washed, and this can irritate sensitive skin, such as that of a baby, if the soap is too strong….
yes. It's only clumped by moisture, and you are adding it to even more water.
Yes! I use borax in the homemade laundry soap that I make. Here is a link on how to make it. http://sarahsworld-sarahsworld.blogspot.com/2011/04/how-to-make-all-natural-laundr…y-soap-at.html
A good car wash soap, it doesn't leave spots, dish soap will.
They may not be rinsed out thoroughly and could there could still be a residue on the baby's diapers, which could be irritating to the baby's skin.
yes you can but it will stip off the wax, best to rewax your caragain afterwards
I first need to say I have been OCD about car detailing for 30years easily.The real truth about what soap or type of soap to washa car are all over the place.In a complete hon…est opinion the carwash soaps sold at any auto store or department store are a JOKE!Over priced and telling you how safe it is and it smell's prettyare just well annoying.Hand's down the only product that is quoteby me(Safe for you hand's it is safe for your paint)! is Ivorysoap.Yes dish detergent washing soap.I have used ivory soap for 30+years and will not strip any polish,wax,or harm your paint nomatter how high tech the paint is on your vehicle period!In shortthis soap whips up the suds,cuts thru dirt,grease (and I meanliterally on the grease) and as you use this washing your vehicleyour glass over time will bead water like rain x all day long.Somesuggestion tips is squirt the ivory into a bucket and addwater,then I apply a bead of ivory strickly to the glass on thewindshield and back glass and wash with bathroom towel for yourhands.On the side windows doors or coupe's apply a bead of ivory tothe glass only and wash the side's of your car.If you wash your carweekly and do this application your windows over time will beadwater and prevent water spotting and improve rain driving andinclement weather visibility issues.I will say I do not apply ivoryto my glass every week washing as it is not required because Iclean all the time.My modo for ivory is simple.If it is safe foryour hands it is safe for a cars paint and anyone I suggested thisto Never complain's period! I in short will say this is the bestcar wash soap and dirt cheap at your local department store's likewally world (the cheapest) or targ-t for example's.

There are many different ways to make your own car wash soap. Simply using dish detergent in warm water is one way to make your own car wash soap. Another way is to use 1 cup …of liquid dish washing soap and 12 tablespoons of powdered laundry detergent in warm water to make a good car wash soap. For a more eco-friendly car wash soap, you can use 1 cup of a vegetable-based oil soap or multipurpose green cleaner mixed with warm water. Does this help you?
