Secrets of Success

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 !

More Information:

I use this rule with:
dryer sheets
dog flea stuff
paper of all kinds
Use your imagination and try things out and see what works just as well if you onnly use 1/2 as much !

    Absolutly true! Especially the laundry detergent- the appliance salesman I dealt with recommends using half what the package says and 1/4-1/8 for front loaders. Same results, and the package lasts forever! - by SUGAR1999
  • Absolutely agree - I have been doing this with laundry detergent for years!! The only time I use the full amount is for my husband's greasy work clothes. - by BBRADBURN
  • I saw this on the news as a whole family downsized half of everything; even their house! That's a tad extreme for me but I like your idea, thanx! emoticon - by SUNSET09
  • Never thought of it that way, but I like the idea. Am going to do this. Thanks - by VRACHAL
