I hate having streaks of detergent running down my detergent bottles. It will then drip onto my dryer. After it dries, I have to scrub to get it off.
I started saving a cap from a previous detergent bottle. When I pour the detergent into the cap to measure it, I just drop the cap into washing machine. I replace the cap with the one I saved and alternate the caps.
No more drips down my bottle and one less thing to be irritating! It is a simple thing but it saves time and energy. I no longer have to scrub dried detergent off my dryer.
When you use the laundry cap from the big shelf bottles and the cap has to be rinsed, don't bother. Fill the cap as needed, when done slide the cap forward so it scrapes the dispenser of any dripping.
I don't get "slide the cap forward so it scrapes the dispenser of any dripping". Slide it forward on which dispenser? What I do is rinse the cap under the water that is filling the washer. The cap is always clean.
Liquid laundry detergent bottles unfortunately seem to routinely develop leaks, whether from the easy pour spout or the actual seams on the bottle. This is a page about storing laundry detergent without the mess.
