Daily Tip ~ Use Less Detergent

If there’s no visible dirt, only perspiration, in your laundry, use MUCH less detergent. Try an old dish soap squirt bottle, pour in detergent to 1/3, then fill the rest with water. Use only 2-3 tablespoons of this diluted detergent in the washer. Clothes get clean and they rinse better too. The same concept goes for dishes. If there is no yucky grime and you just need to quickly sanitize them then use less dish soap or a diluted bleach solution.
