  • So, what is a dish soap?

    Dish soaps are formulated to facilitate the removal of greasy baked-on food from dishes (glasses, plates, utensils, pots, etc.). They also suspend (emulsify) the grease in the wash water to facilitate rinsing.

  • Is there anything I should not wash using Ajax® Ultra dish soap?

    There's actually several things you should not wash with Ajax® Ultra. It's not supposed to be used on carpet and rug stains. And please, never think about using it for bathing or shampooing. Also, don't use it as a replacement for Laundry Detergent. Never use your dish liquid in an automatic dishwasher (the suds will overflow), and never ever mix your dish liquid with bleach or ammonia.

    For best cleaning results on all surfaces, follow the manufacturer's cleaning instructions. (They're there for a reason!)

  • Is Ajax® Ultra dish soap safe for septic systems?

  • Can I mix Ajax® with bleach?

    No. Dish soaps should never be mixed with bleach or products containing bleach. The dish soap goes through an ammoniated process, whereby ammonia is introduced to the formula. Although it is not used as an ingredient, there could be traces of ammonia remaining in the product after manufacturing. Ammonia mixed with bleach can cause toxic fumes. If fumes occur, open the window and leave the room immediately.

  • Can I reuse my wash water on my plants?

    We don't recommend it. However, check with local ordinances and Health Department regulations. If regulations allow the use of wash water, the following should be kept in mind: Wash water should not be used on or near edible crops (fruits, vegetables, or herbs). Wash water should not be continuously used in the same area. Alternate fresh water use should take place.
