Your choice of soap will depend on the object you intend to clean. Soaps like Dawn or Ivory, as well as baking soda, are good mild cleaners for dishes, worktops, cabinets, and ovens.
To use dish soaps for cleaning, combine one spoonful of soap with one cup of water. This mixture is ideal for common surfaces like countertops and cabinets. If using baking soda, dilute it with three parts warm water for one part baking soda. This can be used to scrub burned-on stains, such as those seen on ovens, with the resulting paste. When searching for mild dish soaps, look for products that do not contain artificial fragrances and that feature skin-soothing elements, such as aloe vera.
