Think you are being frugal enough with your dish washing by buying dish soap when it is on sale and with a coupon? Well, you could be even MORE frugal!
Did you know that many women are using far more dish soap for their hand washing than they really need to be using? Think about the generous amount you squirt into your sink or that dirty pot. Next time, reduce the amount of dish soap you squirt by half, and see if the dishes are just as clean as with the more generous squirt.
And as an added bonus, super soapy water takes that much more water to rinse of dishes (since there is not only an abundance of suds, but they often keep sudsing up while you are trying to rinse them off), meaning that you will ALSO be saving on your water consumption bill as well as your water heater electricity (or gas) usage, because you won’t be using as much hot water too!
So, how much dish soap are you using? And what did you discover when you used just half the amount.
And as a bonus tip, also try using just 1/4 of the amount you usually use… you could also find that you only need that much to get your dishes clean!
