    Dish Soap

    I like to keep my dish soap by the sink in my kitchen. I don't like the look of the container so I changed it. My kitchen is green so I looked for green dish soap. I found a pretty glass bottle ( curved so I can grip it even with wet hands) and added one of those split pour things for pouring alcohol. I took the picture on my table so you can see how pretty it looks with the paint. Just an idea if you are tired of looking at the dish soap on your counter.Name:  image.jpg

    What a great idea. Love the shape of the bottle. My soap is the same as my kitchen color.

    great idea. I also have a pump on my sink that holds the liquid soap. I love your idea. I did something similar in the bathroom with aqua soap.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I just use Dawn in the small bottle. My sister uses the same but likes the green also and has hers in a yellow bottle so it looks green. We wash our hands in Dawn.

    I keep dish soap under the sink. I rarely use it though as everything goes in the dishwasher. I buy hand soap by how pretty the bottle will look sitting by the sink. But seldom does anyone wash their hands in the kitchen sink but me when I'm cooking.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    My sister used the pretty bottle from acohol (patron tequila) & used the pour thing too, makes it so much pretty to look at. I liked your bottle too, easy to grab and pour!
    take plenty of pic of family & friends, keep tabs on loved ones but make time for yourself !

    I use a Srirachi bottle because the cap tips backwards so I can pour and then pop it forwards to seal it back.

    My stainless steel faucet has a handle to turn the water on, a sprayer, and a dispenser for soap and I fill it with Dawn so no containers on the sink.
