Do you use liquid laundry detergent? Does it make a mess everywhere? Do you feel as though you are wasting detergent (and wasting money) because the liquid soap runs everywhere or the cup that it comes with sits on top of your washer collecting a big puddle of soap?
Here’s a helpful tip that can help save you money and keep your laundry room nice and tidy:
You will need a small container of liquid detergent. Make sure it is the kind with the lid that is the dispenser, not the kind that uses a separate cup to measure out the soap. I bought a small (25 loads) container of liquid Tide at Family Dollar. It was on sale for $4, but with my .50 off coupon it was only $3.50.
I used the detergent in the smaller container for laundry as normal. Then, when the container was empty, I simply refilled the smaller container, using the liquid from the Large (120 loads) container of Kirkland liquid detergent that I bought at Costco. Every week or so, I just refill the smaller container.
I now have a cleaner laundry area and I am saving money by not wasting any of the detergent.
I’m going to attempt to make my own laundry soap one of these days… but for now, I am happy not to waste the stuff I bought.
