Cheap Tuesday – Pump Bottle Dosage

Cheap Tuesday

Welcome to another Cheap Tuesday tip.  This one relates to pump bottles like hand soap, bulk shampoo, body wash, dishwashing liquid and the like.

Often depressing the pump will give you more product than you actually need. If this is the case you can wrap an elastic band under the pump head and slide/roll it up or down the stem of the pump so that it creates a “stop” point for the depressing of the head.

This is a small saving per dose, but over time it will add up. Additionally there will be less product in the waterways that needs treatment.

Sounds like a win:win to me!
