Don't forget to wash your soap bottles too.

When cleaning your kitchen sink area, don't forget to clean your hand soap, dish soap and/or lotion bottles too.

Tick removal - People or animals

Unless someone is allergic to soap, apply a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball. Cover the tick with the soap-soaked cotton ball and swab it for a few seconds (15-20), the tick will come out on its own and be stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it away.

Rule of 1/2

Practice doing everything with 1/2 of the product you would normally use. For example: 1/2 the normal laundry soap ! Clothes will be just as clean and laundry soap wil last 2x as long with means you spent 1/2 as much on laundry soap !

Soap bar slivers

When your soap bar has worn down to a little sliver, press it to the next bar of soap and "glue" them together with a bit of water. Once it dries, the soaps will be fused into one bar, and you don't waste anything! Works even with two different kinds of soap bar.
