Saving Money on Dishwashing Liquid

My helpful hint on dish liquid for your sink. I buy 1 large bottle of whatever is on sale and I save the old bottles, When I get a new bottle, I fill 3 bottles with just a 1/4 of liquid and the rest water, I end up with 4 bottles of liquid detergent.


This is especially good if you have a dishwasher or not, because all you are doing is rinsing off the dishes. If you don't have a dishwasher, you would be so surprised when you squirt some liquid on a scrubbie sponge and start scrubbing, it works just the same.

I hope this helps someone! I always hated that thick feeling of dish liquid, and thought I was not getting it all off my dishes. I still wash a lot of things by hand, so I only use my dishwasher once a week.

I add a few drops of essential oil to Free and Clear (hypoallergenic) dish soap to mimic the expensive all-natural soaps without the possible allergens, since even all-natural soaps can have natural ingredients I'm allergic to.

When you buy dish washing liquid, pour half in an empty bottle you've saved, and fill each bottle with warm water. Turn upside down a few times to mix. Works just as well and you get double for your money.

I never throw out my dishwashing liquid bottles, all of which always have a little liquid at the bottom. I save them until I am running low (on both cash and soap!) and pour them all into one bottle, sometimes making another entire bottle!
