Keep Diluted Dish Soap By Sink

Several years ago, I was using up the last of a bottle of dish soap, but the last bit was stuck on the bottom of the bottle. I added water and used a bit, then thought about how nice it was to have diluted dish soap on hand. It's great for doing just a few dishes without filling the whole sink or to wash greasy hands without having to rinse and rinse to get the thick stuff off.


I implemented this at my parent's house, and they loved both the convenience and the fact that it encouraged my tween sister to wash her hands more. I dilute my hand soap too, but only by 1/2, whereas with the dish soap I just put a thin layer of soap on the bottom of the bottle and fill the rest with water. Also, I buy giant refill bottles of dish and hand soap at my local Costco to save money too.

P.S. I always buy Dawn dish soap because Dawn is biodegradeable and helps save wildlife affected by oilspills.

Natalie, I always loved Dawn. However, hubby insists on buying Joy.


With your tip, I have the ammo to argue for a switch back to Dawn, thanks!

Hi Natalie and Jo and Everyone,
The original blue Dawn Dishwashing Liquid is also the best soap/shampoo to use on a pet that is having trouble with fleas or tics too. Dawn kills them instantly without harming your fur babies.

Dawn is the best grease-cutting dishwashing liquid on the market today as well. I add a little immediately to a greasy pot or pan, and rub it all over, then use hot water to wash it or allow it to sit for a little while if foods are baked on, and it's fast-acting too.

The folks who live in the areas that were affected by oil spills wouldn't think of using anything else because the company (Proctor & Gamble) has been so generous about "giving back" to their communities wherever and whenever they are needed.


If only other companies were just half as good as Proctor & Gamble and our
own Thrifty Fun people.

Think about it!
