Dishwashing Liquid Life Hack – How to Use a Ton Less of it

How to use a ton less dishwashing liquid. Put a little bit of dishwashing liquid into a squirt bottle and fill it up the rest of the way with water. We use around 1 part dishwashing liquid to 40 parts water but we never measure it exactly (1 US tablespoon per 2 1/2 cups water).

We have used one ~3 quart container of Dawn Advanced Power for 6 1/2 years which shows how little you need to use. We suspect that many brands of dishwashing liquid should work as well and you certainly should try the one you have at home first.

Lastly, be sure to buy a good quality spray bottle because you are going to be using it for years and years and a lot of them are crap out there.
