Dawn Wash 'n' Toss Disposable Dish Pads with Dawn Inside\n"I washed all my Thanksgiving Dishes (for 6 people plus pots and pans) with just one pad. It is really great because you don't have the germy old sponge doing the dishes. I used to soak my sponges in water with bleach to kill the germs but wi…th these it's great because I can just use a new pad. I wash my dog's food and water dishes with these and can use a separate one for people dishes. I also find them really convenient when I wash their outside water dishes and their play swimming pool (I have 8 dogs) because I don't have to take out a dishwashing bottle and sponge outside. Also, they're great if you're traveling somewhere or for the office if you want to wash some lunch utensils or dishes without getting other people's germs. I also keep a couple in a ziplock bag at my desk and at home in my bathroom to clean the dog's water dishes I keep there and also some for the toothbrush/water dishes. They are also not too bulky and thereby do not contribute a lot of trash."\nI'm assuming it's fine, but since I haven't found much...\nIf you want to be on the safe side, I would use just a mild dish soap, like Method.

Each time causing the water bowl to get filled with mud. So, we gave her/him it's own water bowl down off of the deck to use, and… it worked. The bowl has dirt in it every morning, so we empty it and fill it with fresh water to use. It has kept the racoon from coming up on the porch and deck and even looking in our windows. ( Full Answer )
