I guess, if there were no other options and money was severely tight, then have at er, but not a chance I'd do that to any vehicle of mine. I even hate the thoughts of running engine flushes with the correct products, let alone running a household cleaner!

I haven't seen it for 15 years or so but some dealers did interior cleaning of engines. They would drain the oil, then run a heated solvent through the engine while it was running on the lift for 5-15 minutes, drain it, refill with new oil. This was supposedly done to improve both performance and emissions especially if you failed. I had it done on a 1990 Honda Accord and noticed neither.
That stuff is very very powerful. I had iron stains on the tiles in my place due to some water problems and that basically got 80% of the deep stains out. CLR got nothing on it and it's from a dollar store lol

Its at Dollar Tree, Dollar General and Family Dollar.
Back when i had dump trucks it was my go to degreaser for the engine and suspension that would be caked with oil/grease/dirt that i had to clean to service or replace parts. Also it removed oil stains from concrete.
I would like to see a dirty piston soak like they have done with other products to see if its just as or more powerful..its dang good stuff.
