Making Soap go farther…

My kids love good smelling body wash but if I give them a whole bottle, it usually gets spilled and then wasted.

My solution? I save the small plastic bottles that the samples come in. I just refill them with the body wash of their choice. If it spills….. no big deal.

We also refill the foamy pump dish detergent or hand soap bottles. I am able to pour in an inch of the body wash or shampoo and the rest water. The foampy pump gives the kids fun suds and I save the body wash.

We take the empty laundry detergent bottles and fill them up with water. When you shake up the bottle, there is enough residual detergent to make a great hand soap for when you are out fishing or working in the yard.

What’s your easiest money saving/ mind saving trick to help your body wash go farther?

    Use a soap foamer…and make your own solution. It is generally about 1/4 soap to 3/4 water. You really save your soap when you use one and it is just as effective! You can buy the bottles at the dollar store and just refill them with your own detergent once you run out.
