Use a Squirt Bottle for Dishes

Take a squirt bottle that you are comfortable using. Fill 1/4 liquid dish soap, then fill the rest with water. When you put a dish in the sink (to be cleaned later) squirt inside with soap mixture and leave it.


Do this with all your dishes; by the time you decide to wash them you will not need to scrub them!

This tip will save on the cost of soap as well as your scrubbers.

I use spray bottles....I put a spray trigger in a small soap bottle and works great. Just be sure to use the formula above as soap alone is too thick.

Thanks for the tip I would put a drop of dish soap in the plate etc, but this is even better to do soap.

I use a dish detergent bottle for my shampoo. I put 1/2 shampoo and 1/2 water in the bottle. When washing my hair, I just squirt the shampoo on my head and it suds up immediately and so much easier to rinse out the shampoo. My hair is squeaky clean.
