Is toilet paper really necessary?
How can that little piece of leftover soap be of any use?
If you like challenges as I do then this is right up your alley!
You could also save up the slivers and make a new bar of soap. I have not tried soap making before.
3. When washing hands rinse them under the tap and turn off water to lather hands. Then turn water back on to rinse soap off.
4. Buy a cheap soap dispenser and buy refills of liquid soap. Fill the dispenser with one third soap and the rest with water. Shake until the soap is well dispersed. Now you have foamy soap that will go a little further.
5. Buy yet another cheap soap dispenser. Only this time use it to fill with toothpaste. If there are kids around the home it is likely that toothpaste is being wasted when squeezed from the tube. Take the tube and squeeze the toothpaste into the clean soap dispenser. Easy dispensing and less waste thus saving money.
Note: A pea sized amount of toothpaste is all that is needed when brushing as recommended by the dental association.
6. When brushing teeth fill a small cup with water to rinse toothbrush and mouth instead of using running tap water.
10. When down to your last bit of shampoo/conditioner add a little water to the bottle and shake. There is usually enough product around the insides of the container to get a few more washes.
11. Don't throw in the towel after just one use. Use at least two or three times before throwing them in the laundry.
12. Do not waste money on expensive toilet bowl cleaners. Instead pour in some baking soda followed by some vinegar and leave for about one hour. Then use a toilet brush to wipe. For really tough stains repeat and leave baking soda and vinegar overnight before wiping with brush.
Happy saving :)
