Stretching That Soap

They have been getting smaller and smaller - those bottles of dish soap.

But the prices have stayed the same or gone up a bit.

They are supposed to be more concentrated so you get more for the money out of a bottle.

That would probably work if everyone used less instead of the same amount.

So, a few years ago, I started keeping a separate bottle, and mixing some of that dish soap with water.

It certainly went a lot farther, and the same amount was being used just the same by everyone.

And it didn't affect the suds in the sink - there were always enough.

This small trick has saved us money, and I still buy the good brands as they are the best latherers.

But I only do so when they are on sale - and a coupon is always a bonus!
