Thursday Leftovers: No More Gummy Laundry Detergent Cups


In case you missed this last year when I posted it, today’s tip is an easy one and one I got from my mom.

Does your laundry detergent cup look like mine did above?  Is the leftover detergent gumming up the cup and your cabinet?

Solution: Pour detergent into the lid or cup and then instead of putting it back in the cabinet or on the container, just toss it in with the wash.  When the cycle is finished, your cup/lid will be all clean and free of gummy detergent residue!

Happy Washing!
