Alternative to dish soap, can I use body wash or shampoo instead among others?

HI,
I have bunch of body wash and shampoos but am getting low on hand wash and dish soap (not much deals for those). I was wondering if I can use shampoo or body wash for washing dishes? Has anyone done this?
What other method do you use to wash dishes?
Thank you.

Never tried it on dishes,(curious to what answers you will get on that one) but I use all my free mens body wash to refill my handsoap dispensers and also use it to remove soapscum from the sink and clean out the bathtub and have even used it on the toilet brush to give a quick clean-up to the commode. Shampoo would probably work just as well for those jobs.

Hand wash/body wash would be interchangable, except if you need antibacterial.

For Dish soap don't think I would try the shampoo because of the additional things that could be in it esp. conditioner, hair shine, etc....but what did they use to wash dishes before there WAS soap in the bottle? Homemade Bar soap and very hot water. My only concern would be if there were things in the body wash or shampoo that would make a film on my dishes. Try it and let us know!

I tried using either body wash or shampoo on dishes ( I don't remember which) when we were out of dish soap once. I don't recommend it. It didn't clean as well and there was more rinsing involved to get rid of the soap. I don't want my dishes to smell pretty. I don't want them to smell like anything at all.

This was a fascinating read......why do we wash dishes with soap. There were also several links for even more info.

Google Answers: Why do we wash dishes with soap?

That being said, I remember my grandmother putting hot hot water in the sink (added boiling water) and soaked with a touch of bleach. When it cooled enough to touch she finished washing the dishes with a bit of lye soap on a dish rag (or another soap).

I'm thinking that body wash or shampoo might not be food safe for your dishes?
