Over a whole year it can cost quite a lot of money to provide handwash at sinks and basins. Since it really is quite literally ‘money down the drain’ it makes a lot of sense to cut the cost of it if possible. I found a way that works for us.
Take one empty liquid soap container…
Purchase one bottle of ‘economy brand’ bubble bath. Mine cost only 18p for a Litre bottle. It says 21p on the bottle, but even that was reduced (so i bought 3 or 4 more!).
Slowly pour the liquid into the empty bottle.
Fill as many empty liquid handwash containers as you have!
A 1 litre bottle of bath foam’ fills 2 x 500ml bottles, so whereas i would ordinarily pay £1 per 500ml bottle of handwash (minimum), the 1 litre of bath foam fills 2 x 500ml bottles for only 9 pence a bottle each.
Now that is what i call economy! It might not be everyones cup of tea, faffing around like this, but it suits me fine and helps me to cut the cost of expenditure on toiletries/cleaning products, so i thought i’d share it with you.
