One of the biggest ways I learned to save on expenses was to “foam” our soap. When the children were just tiny tots, the full pump of soap was so much for their little hands, especially with soft water. Some people also think if a little is good, more is better, so it was easy to go through alot of soap. I purchased foam soap, then started reusing the containers to make it myself. You use about a 1:6 ratio (more or less, depending on your water). I keep a full strength antibacterial soap on hand for those times when it’s needed,(raw meat,etc.) but use foam soap for everything else. Saves us ALOT!
