Do you hate to do dishes as much as I do? It’s not that I hate the actual “act” of doing the dishes, it just seems like everytime the sink is empty, cleaned out and the dish towel hung another kid fills it back up. My kids seem to think that dishes magically hop into the dishwasher all by themselves. Drives me crazy!
I don’t put my pots and pans in the dishwasher so I always have to wash these by hand. Since it seems like a pot is in constant use for Ramen Noodles, Grilled Cheese and Soup, I always have pots to scrub. Which leads me to today’s post …
It feels like I am constantly under the sink digging for the dish soap or the bottle is sitting on the sink, dripping and slimy. I decided I had had enough and needed to figure out a way to leave the dish soap out all the time without it being an eyesore. Target and Rachel Ray to the rescue!!
I picked up this orange oil dispenser at Target this week. You know I love the color, but the shape is so cool and it is so easy to pick up and use. This container held an entire bottle of Ajax dish soap. The soap comes out a little slower and you don’t get as much, but it is enough and I figure I am saving some money by not squeezing so much soap out onto my dishes.
The container looks awesome sitting up on a cake stand that I had in the cabinet. I like how it is off the countertop, but still looks organized. I added the bottle of handsoap and the little owl (just because I like an odd number of items in a grouping). I have since moved the little owl and replaced it with the new Windex push top cleaner. I wanted to put a pretty sponge on here – but let’s face it – sponges are gross.
Full disclosure … the Hubs thought I was nuts. ”Why does the dish soap have to be in a pretty container again?” My simple answer: ”It makes me happy!” End of story and enough said.
I used this bright orange oil dispenser, but you could use vintage bottles, oil and vinegar bottles or just about anything that makes YOU happy.
Hope your life is more pretty dish soap heaven than havoc!
