I wanted to share with you a tip I found on the Internet recently to help with your laundry. I wish that I could remember where I found it so that I could give credit where credit is due.
I have a front-load washer and this is what my laundry detergent usually looks like.
There was always some left in the little cup and if you look at the top of the detergent container you can see where I set the cup because it is gooey from little dribbles of soap. It didn't matter how hard I tried there was always soap residue left wherever I sat the cup down. Even if I used a smaller bottle of detergent it would always dribble down the side and I was left with the same mess.
Now look at this.
It is not what it looks like. I saved my empty dish detergent bottles and I filled them with my laundry detergent. Since my front-load washer already has a line showing me how much detergent to put in, I don't need a small cup to measure it out. I simply pour in some detergent and nothing drips!
I also don't have to lug those heavy bottles any more. I think this is a great idea for someone with Arthritis in their hands or someone who no longer has the upper body strength to lift those heavy detergent bottles.
I love this idea and it has been working really well for me! And best of all, no more soapy residue!
