This tip is more indirectly frugal because, hey, time is money right? And the time it takes to clean up a mess could be better spent making a meal from scratch or shopping the sale rack at the local grocery store. So on that note, here's my Works For Me Wednesday tip for this week.
Do you use liquid laundry detergent with the little dispenser cup? I make a homemade version and a use a 1/2 cup scoop to dispense it into my laundry tub. But that little cup gets gooey and drippy and gross after just a few uses. Plus I can never get every drip of laundry soap out.
So one day I dumped the soap in the laundry tub and the cup slipped out of my fingers and into the path of the water as it filled up. I decided to just leave it there rather than fish it out. And you know what? The dispenser went through the wash, used every little drop of soap, and came out clean when it was all over. No sticky goo. No wasted soap. No slimy fingers.
So now I do it on purpose.
That's what Works For Me. Anybody else have the same problem?
