Are there any retail outlets for Dawn detergent in Queensland Australia?
By Lee from Palm Beach, QLD Australia
Dawn in Australia is called Fairy. It is made by the same company.
Costco in Australia now has Dawn blue liquid soap. I've been trying to get the Pink Dawn Pomegranate Scent with Olay moisturiser but I can't find it here and getting it from amazon is only about $12Au but the postage would be $75. Not exactly what I want to pay for Dawn of any colour
Can I buy Dawn soap in Newcastle N.S.W.?
By Judy from Newcastle, N.S.W. Australia
I recently bought a bottle of Dawn dishwashing liquid from Cheap as Chips in Adelaide, it was $3.50. Do you have a Cheap as Chips shop in Newcastle, if not perhaps try a Reject shop or similar.
Where can I buy Dawn dish liquid in Australia, Queensland?
Dawn is a brand name. The closest equivalent to Dawn in Europe - and I'm assuming Australia too - is Fairy washing up liquid or Texol if you can find it. Since it's a concentrated degreaser to remove fats, etc. from dishes, it has a lot of uses for other things too. Hope this helps.

Can you tell me where to buy your Dawn soap in Australia? I have no contacts there. I have very stubborn blood stains on a beige carpet on which I've tried everything, but it won't shift at all. I have just read about your Dawn soap, but haven't heard of it in NZ. So can you help please?
By Betty from NZ
I tried dawn-dish.com and they had a section of where you can buy their product.
But they asked for the zip code and I didn't have yours.
Try the site, maybe they carry it somewhere near you; good luck! (05/05/2010)
Did you try hydrogen peroxide on a small area of it?
There's a product in America called Incredible and it gets out literally anything. They sell it through Amazon.com.
Also, a site called ehow.com is supposed to tell you how to clean things.
I only googled to get this information.
Good luck! (05/05/2010)
I worked in the nursing field for years and we used hydrogen peroxide, the kind you use for disinfectants, it will not take the carpet dye out. Good luck:) (05/05/2010)
A very close substitution for Dawn dish soap is a product called TEXOL, if you can find it in Australia. Also Fairy Washing Up Liquid is an excellent substitution. (05/07/2010)
I was wondering where I can get Dawn dish soap in Australia? It was mentioned in a tip.

Not sure, but here's the DAWN website, maybe you can contact them and find out. It is great. A real miracle worker. On their commercial here in US, shows scientists cleaning birds who were caught in oil spills and the Dawn dissolves the oil. http://www.dawn-dish.com/en_US/home.do. (04/03/2010)
I think I would just try any basic soap for hand washing dishes. Dawn is not that different from a variety of other brands, like Joy and Palmolive. I usually use a generic yellow dish soap and it works good on stains. (04/05/2010)
You could also try here:
It's drugstore.com, and they ship internationally.
I tend to disagree with the poster who's satisfied with the generic dish-washing stuff, only because I've used them too and seem to find that I need twice the amount of those to do what the Dawn does the first time...for me, it's more cost efficient to use Dawn, even though the price is higher.

Try Fairy or Texol if you can find it in Australia. They both are very similar. (04/08/2010)
