Eco Tip of the Week: Dilute to Save Money & Resources

Eco tip submitted by Winkydinks

Here’s an easy, simple trick to stretch your dollar – and have an impact on the environment.

Use a foamer bottle for your hand soap dispensers. (You can buy them online)

Fill 1/3 with liquid soap, and the rest with water. It produces a great foamy lather (which kids love!).

Buy soap less often! (which means fewer trips to the store, fewer bottles to throw away, less $$ spent on soap, etc.)
My favorite is Kirk’s Castille liquid soap in Peppermint.

Other things you can dilute and stretch your dollar –
– Fruit juice
– Shampoo
– Dish soap
– use less laundry detergent (did you know you actually need much less than the manufacturer recommends?)
– other ideas?? Share them!
