Dishwashing Soap



I buy a very large bottle of dishwashing soap then fill a small bottle with half the soap and half with water and shake. Still cuts the grease and your dishwashing liquid lasts twice as long.

    This works for liquid hand soap, too! emoticon - by KARENTOO2
  • I use this method and it reallly saves $. you use very little soap per water ratio.Works great and I reuse a foam pump too. - by HAPPINESSCOUNTS
  • Yes, this does work!
    You dilute the soap with water when you use anyway. LOL

    A long time ago I had a FREE coupon for one of those foaming bottles of Dawn dish soap. I really liked it. But I didn't like the price for the bottle for the replacement soap specifically
    for the foaming pump bottle.

    I discovered that if I pour about an inch of regular Dawn dish soap into the bottle and fill the rest to the line with water it works just great.
    This is the only way the bottle will work and turn the soap into foam. It has to be diluted soap.

    So, when people go and purchase the special replacement
    dish soap for that foaming bottle they are paying so much more for diluted soap.

  • I already buy the large bottle and refill a small one that is left on the sink. I will add water and see how that works. Money is tight now with husband not working and every penny saved counts. - by WWYOYO
