Saving on Dishwashing Liquid

by StephBuckwalter on May 19, 2010

I came across this tip quite by accident. One of my sons could never figure out how much dishwashing liquid to add to the water when doing dishes. After a couple of years of this, I took a pump from a shampoo bottle, washed it out, then put it into the dishwashing liquid bottle. After some experimentation, we learned that it takes three squirts to get just the right amount of soap.

 The results were amazing. Since doing this, a bottle of dishwashing detergent lasts about twice as long, maybe even a little longer. An added bonus is the water is never slimy from too much soap or bubble-free from too little. Try it!
