Saving on Cleansers, Dishwashing Liquids and Cleaning Sprays

To save cleanser that comes in cans, I never peel off the entire covering over the holes. I only peel off to expose one-two holes. You use less and there's less waste. Kids just love to shake, shake, shake.

To save on cleaning sprays, I use tape to cover a few of the holes or don't unscrew the opening only slightly. This way I use only what I need, where I need it.

Pour dishwashing liquid into a smaller personal sized bottle (used for travelling) and you'll use less each time you need to wash dishes.

Great tip on using a smaller bottle for dish washing liquid. I do this as well. I use FULL strength hydrogen peroxide and borax, sometimes baking soda for most all my cleaning needs. It's great on Glass. No streaks! It doesn't harm your lungs, hands or septic system. I can't deal with all the harsh cleaning products on the market today. My alternative Is much cheaper, and works just as well If not better, when compared to all the pricey cleaners available.

Because of arthritis I use a pump dispenser leftover from liquid shower soap. Easier than lifting and squeezing/pouring a heavy bottles.
