Soap Squirt Bottle
I have been putting my liquid dish washing soap in a spray bottle for years.
Most any spray bottle will work.
I bet the average person uses way too much soap for that clean up chore if he (she) pours it from the regular bottle.
One "squart" from the bottle I use is less than 1/4 teaspoon. I have used less than 1/4 bottle of DOVE since October last year.
My experience has been one "squart" is enough soap to clean an average combination of dishes, pots and pans.
The secret is to not dilute the soap with a lot of water.
Every one should try the amount of soap they feel will do the job.
The whole point here is that the "squart" bottle will save you lots of soap.
