Save on Soap

Save money by spending less on dish-soap. The less soap you use, the less often you have to buy a new bottle.

How to do it: Instead of squeezing soap directly onto a sponge, spray your dishes with a soap-water solution from a spray bottle. Put a small amount of soap into a plastic spray bottle, then fill the bottle with water. Experiment by spraying some soap onto a dirty plate to see if your solution is strong enough. If not, add a little more soap and repeat until the mixture is strong enough to be just noticeably soapy. When you wash dishes, simply spritz them with the solution in the spray bottle and use a wet sponge to rub them clean.

To help you remember to use the spray bottle, put your old soap container away and leave the spray bottle in its place. This idea is also great if you have kids as they tend to have difficulties rationing soap.
