Reusing Containers for Portable Laundry Supplies

We sold our 3 bedroom home and moved into a 2 bedroom apartment. I'm now using the laundromat in the complex. Every Friday when I did my wash, I had to carry not only the laundry basket but heavy bottles of laundry detergents as well.


Now I found a use for the coffee creamer bottles that I so frugally saved. I'm saving a third bottle to hold my liquid fabric softener. I also saved the old caps from the bottles so I can measure the amount in each washing machine.

I just have to make sure that I refill the bottles when they run low.

When I used an apt.'s laudromat, to avoid carrying all of those heavy bottles, I would just refill a smaller laundry bottle in the apt. before using the washer. So if I knew I'd do 3 washes, I'd bring that much detergent, softener...
