Do you have a liquid dish soap called Fairy in the UK? I'm from the USA but live in the Netherlands and Fairy is definitely the equivalent if not the same as Dawn (I always used Dawn in the USA).

Dawn is just a dish detergent, a good degreaser that gets tomato stains out pretty well. You probably already know of something like that?

It's been suggested mix this Dawn washing up liquid with a little rubbing alcohol and water to make your own spectacle cleaner. The thing is I live in the UK and you can't buy it here so what's the equivalent? Does anyone know?

If you can find Fairy where you live, this is equivalent to the Dawn dish soap. In Europe this is the next best thing to Dawn from the US.

Both Dawn and Fairy are produced by Proctor & Gamble and from all accounts have approximately the same ingredients. Dawn in US and Fairy in UK/Europe.

I live in England and keep reading about how good Dawn dish soap is for killing fleas on dogs, but they don't seem to sell it over here! This is a long shot, but has anyone any idea what the equivalent would be?

Thank you!
