Using even household goods up
Fast forward and as I was recovering from shoulder surgery, I returned to using dishwasher tabs that I also had on hand, as I could fill the dishwasher cup with one hand. I am recovering nicely, and need to use my shoulder/arm to help it return as fast as possible to prior to surgery strength and range of motion. One of the small ways I can do that, has been to go back to using the old dishwasher powder up.
I decanted it again, tonight, this time into a quart sized, former yogurt container. It is about 2/3 s full, indicated by the line where my finger is against the plastic container.
So, using what I had is a good thing. It was languishing previously and it kept dish washer detergent off of my NEEDS grocery list. I did, however, acquire a Freecycle bottle of Aldi's liquid dish washer soap, several boxes of dishwasher tabs, and I did buy a box of Sun D/W soap at Dollar Tree, based on the recommendation of a fellow blogger.
Austerity August means use it up August, get creative, and this spills over to household goods such as D/W soap, laundry detergent, health and beauty aids, cleaning products, etc. My recycling bags are once more filling, so I know that we are using it up.
