For anyone that doesn't know, Crystal had her sweet baby last week. And she's already hosting Frugal Friday again. Amazing.
My Frugal Friday tip this week is really simple. We like good smelling liquid hand soap. I'll buy it at B*ath and Body when they have a great sale. But we have 2 bathrooms that need hand soap. A half bath/laundry room that needs hand soap and then, of course, the kitchen. So buying 4 hand soaps can add up. Especially when you wash your hands often, and we certainly do.
So I've finally found something that works really well for us.
When our soap dispenser gets empty, I give it a quick wash in hot water.
I've found these D*awn Dish soaps to be VERY inexpensive when they're put on sale at C*VS or Wal*Greens. I rarely pay over 50¢ for one of these small bottles. This one is Apple Blossom and it smells really good. It's one of my favorites. But there are all different scents if this one isn't something that your family would enjoy.
I'll fill the dispenser about ¼ full of the dish soap.
Then gently add water to fill it the rest of the way full.
I then gently slosh it back and forth to combine the dish soap and the water. I've found that it stays pretty well mixed, though you may have to give it a slosh every now and again if it's not used often.
One bottle of the dish soap makes about 4-5 bottles of hand soap. Paying 50¢ a bottle for the dish soap, that's appr. 10¢ - 12¢ per bottle of hand soap.
I'd especially recommend this in the kitchen if you, like me, have a dishwasher and don't normally keep dish soap on the kitchen counter. It's so easy to use your hand soap as dish soap to wash the occasional dish. No more pulling your dish soap out from under the counter.
