Mom Hack: No More Wasted Shampoo!
Solve your disappearing shampoo problem in less than 5 minutes!
Do you struggle with buying double the amount of shampoo as soon as you teach your children to wash their own hair? When you are teaching them, do you see nearly the entire bottle being poured out in their hand and watch it quickly run down the drain? The first time I saw this happen, I knew something had to change.
I love it when I find “Mom Hacks” or “Life Hacks” that can make life run better. With simple supplies that you surely have laying around your house, you can solve this problem before your kid’s next shower!
In our showers we use old soap containers for our body wash, conditioner, and shampoo. The kids are able to get a squirt or two all by themselves and it is the perfect amount every time!
We have been using body wash and loofahs for awhile now since the bar soaps were always being played with and ended up in all sorts of different shapes before the kids ever used it to wash their bodies.
I check the containers when I bathe the kids to make sure they don’t need to be refilled. I’m pretty sure that no one would be yelling down the hall for me to refill the soap. We would just have ‘naturally’ scented children…
Seriously, something this easy can make such a difference! I don’t have to monitor how much shampoo is just being washed down the drain because of the ‘uh-oh’ explosion, and my kids are able to be that much more independent earlier on!
What tricks do you have for teaching proper proportions for your kids?
