Just use less . .

. . of shampoo, laundry detergent, dish soap, etc. It is not necessary to use more. Plus you'll save some money in the process.

I usually use only the amount that I need.  I also use my dish soap in my hand soap dispensers and it works fine.

I try not to, but I probably use too much.  More is not always better.

I agree less is more. I use very little detergent in my wash and dish washing. My kids use too much dish liquid and hand soap.

    Buying less is 'more money in your bank account'.
    Many people use disposable paper plates and cups.
    Less messy places. Keeps your home clean all the time.
    Some use public restrooms. Saving on 'expensive items'
    like soap, tissue and paper towels.

I agree with you. A few years ago I started mixing my dish soap with water and putting it in a foaming soap dispenser. I use much less soap that way. A regular-sized container of dish soap should now last me at least a year!  :peace:

How are disposable plates and cups less expensive than real plates and cups? You have to keep buying more when you run out. That's so wasteful.

That's a good idea to use the foaming soap dispenser for your dish soap that you dilute with water.  I don't know how long a bottle of diluted dish soap in a foaming dispenser will last, but a year sounds extreme.

I find skimping on dish washing liquid just means I run out of bubbles and have to add more. Laundry detergent though, I have been putting less and less and I don't see or smell any difference! That's definitely a place I can cut corners

Sounds like a good Idea.  I don't use much any way.

There is only 2 of us here so we don't go through stuff very fast.  I found that buying the less expensive version of dish-washing liquid that I just had to use more, so now I always buy Dawn  and it seems to last a while.
