encouraged you to get rid of your dish soap bottle before. There are three good reasons for this:
- Aesthetics and functionality: You can replace a big, heavy, or ugly bottle with something more squeezable, something more beautiful, or just more functional.
- Frugality: When you have a standard bottle in your kitchen you can just buy bags of generic dish soap, or buy it in bulk.
- Water it down: Most dish soap is much too concentrated. In fact, it's so concentrated that it doesn't do a good job cleaning the dishes. This is counter-intuitive but true; it takes a lot more water to lather it up and wash the slick, heavy soap off the dishes. I dilute my dish soap with an equal amount of water, and it actually works better (and lasts twice as long too).
