I almost called this post 'Just a Squirt' and then stopped myself at the last moment ... I don't want any unsavoury characters dropping by!! 😆
I took these photos the week before Christmas when I was refilling the dispenser bottle and they have sat waiting to be used. I started using these pump dispensers when I moved into the Lodge and they have worked out brilliantly well for making the contents last far longer than they ever have before.
I fill them up from whatever washing up liquid I have in stock, last time the Fairy liquid was on special offer so I bought two of the larger ones, but I'm never averse to using Aldi's or a supermarkets own if they are cheaper. I think it was either the end of October or right at the start of November when I bought the bottles and this is still the first of them, so as you can see it's lasting well. Just two or three squirts into a bowlful of hot water gets all my pots nice and clean twice a day, and I always leave the water there for soaking any pots that I've used in-between washing up sessions. Doing my pots just twice a day means less washing up liquid used and less hot water wasted, thus keeping the bills down too.
It's a similar story in the bathroom with any shampoo I have decanted into a dispenser bottle, just two presses and I have the perfect amount of shampoo for my short hair. The little dispenser actually holds over half of this seemingly large bottle of shampoo.
So once I've filled the dispenser the bottle goes upside down into the shower caddy for use in there, and this of course also makes sure that every last drop of the shampoo gets used from the bottle.
Waste not want not, and I have two more bottles of this shampoo also bought while it was on offer before Christmas, it will be interesting to see how long I can make it last. 😀
