    Use regular Dawn and mix 3 parts water to 1 part Dawn. Put it into a foamy soap dispenser. Yes, it's that simple.

    It works with other liquid soaps, too, but some soaps work better than others.

    I go through that stuff so fast I finally made a quart sized dispenser from a vintage blue mason jar. Love that! I got sick of constantly refilling the vintage blue pint jar I was using at first. So I use a half cup of Dawn (the blue one, of course) and 1 1/2 cups water.

    the weather here is still horrible, one of the worst for rainfall in the record books. I try to get in pool between the drops, as well as my family. I have been cooking every meal, and have had family over for eats and chatter more than i ever have in years. It has been nice. My goal was to spend more time with my aging parents, and have been doing that. My life change has been worth it up to this point. I have been trying new recipes and making some cleaners, My DH calls me Granny Clampbett from the Beverly Hill Billys!! LOL, I think he is even getting interested in DIY things, never thought that would happen. I stopped by my old job yesterday on my way to get groceries and do errands, my replacement isn't working out so well, deep down, I was happy about that, I know, sick and twisted thought, lol, but cuz he was a man he was making more $$$ than I was when I was doing the training, lol, My old boss, is a bigot. LOL I guess his lesson is, if you appreciate ur employees that are great workers, than u better give them a pay raise every few years. LOL

    Oheoh's momma, I still have a son that is in college, he will be a senior this year. He is home when not at school. My kids are 28, 26, and 22. I am 50 and DH is 52 yrs. Been married for almost 31 years. my oldest is married, and a teacher, she lives in town. My 26 yr old lives with her partner, and is a logistics manager, she lives in town, then I have my 22 yr. old. still in college. I don't know how to craft, I have tried before, not too artistic and creative person. Today, I am a bit depressed, it has literally been raining for the whole summer, haven't barely seen the sun. After such a hard winter here in OH and now a dark, raining summer it is starting to affect my mood. This isn't a good day for me.

    Ohe. momma, I have relatives that live in Louisville, and also, i have been thru Lexington several times. Kentucky is a beautiful state!! How far away do you live from Cincinnati? i am a 4 hour drive. I live in Ohio 25 min. drive to the Ohio River, and 45 min. drive to Pittsburgh, PA. 1 hr. drive to Wheeling, WV. My brother was in the navy in the late 70's in Norfolk, also. My nephew is in the navy also. You sound like we have kids similar ages. Today I am really feeling in the dumps, I hate this weather, we have had record rainfall, it is hard now to mow grass etc cuz of weather. Not feeling accomplished today at all. I haven't done anything but pout!! LOL Plus, i have to do bills today, this is when it gets scary for us. going to family reunion Sat. so I do have that to look forward to.
