Dark Side of the dish soap #Cleaning#dishes#kitchens March 4 | Caroline drechyng This idea — dish soap in a decorative bottle with a bar pourer — was apparently Martha Stewart's very first "good thing" — and it really Speak(s) to Me. I saved this awesome Pink Floyd wine bottle and used it to replace the ugly plastic bottle of soap on our counter. The result is a real Eclipse of the former bottle. The colours even tie in to our multi-coloured theme for the kitchen, eliminating any worry that there'd be an Us and Them battle between decor schemes. Don't have a cool Pink Floyd wine bottle? Don't worry — you can use any bottle, of Any Colour You Like. And bonus: the bar pourer regulates the speed at which the soap flows (it takes more Time). So I ultimately use less than I did with the plastic bottle and save a bit of Money! Join our community! Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here.

Show/Hide comments [ 9 ] I totally thought this was going to be a post about how dish soap is bad for you in some way! So glad to find out that it is just a Pink Floyd reference. Your bottle is great. I use a had soap dispenser for my dish soap and also find that I use less than I used to. 13 agree Reply I'm not sure what kind of label this bottle has, but a lot of wine bottles have paper labels. Thoughts on sealing those so the ink doesn't go On the Run? 6 agree Reply We can Breathe a sigh of relief: I think some acrylic sealer should do the trick. Reply Wow I couldn't trust myself with a glass bottle near the sink. I can't count how many glasses I've broken – so much so that I relegate myself to plastic only. I'm sure there are some gorgeous plastic bottles to use, but until then I just store my dish soap under the sink. Less clutter! 4 agree Reply I was thinking about the bottles they use for the flavoring for shaved ice,the spouts they use might work well for soap also. Reply One nice thing about most quality wines is the fact that their bottles are damn near unbreakable. Reply I have my dish soap in a tall, narrow port bottle from a nearby winery. The label has gotten wet, but hasn't really run. I like it way better than the plastic bottle. 🙂 Reply love this! just poured all my dish soap in an empty bottle of Pog Mo Thoin wine I had saved. 1 agrees Reply I really want a motion-activated soap dispenser. Until then, I have something similar on my countertop. Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
