Frugal Friday



I so enjoy the foam handwashing soaps in all the fragrances and attractive bottles. However at $5-6 per bottle this can get expensive, especially when you cook 3 meals per day and a couple of snacks. I discovered a way to save a great deal of money. I use dishwashing liquid. For an 8 oz bottle, put 1 tablespoon of d/w liquid in the bottle. Fill the rest of the bottle with warm water, gently swirl to mix well and there you have foaming handwashing soap. There are many fragrances to choose from. So the label doesn't necessarily match the contents, no big deal!

I do this with other soap bottles, but haven't tried the foaming soap bottle. Actually better as it stretches the dollar even more!

What a great idea! I'm making a batch today. I use so much hand soap.

I'll also be posting your Beef Noodle bake recipe on Monday or Tuesday.
