Isn’t this sickening? All this shampoo for two adult heads in this house. But I can’t help it….it was free and free is for me! Wanna know what’s even more sickening? This was taken a few weeks ago. I’ve given some away and added even more since then. *Sigh* It’s a sickness, I know. But it doesn’t got to waste.
My biggest use for the extra shampoo that we accumulate, besides sharing it with friends and family, is to fill up our hand soap dispensers! We used to be softsoap snobs here, and I would spend an arm and a leg at the warehouse club in our area to get the big bottles. Thank the Lord I wised up! My favorite shampoo to use in this aspect is the kiddie shampoos like the l’oreal one right there in the front. They always have a fun, whimsical smell and tend to be a cool color as well. Because they are meant to be used on the sensitive heads of children, they are also mild enough to get your hands clean without stripping them.
My second favorite use? A Woolite replacement for washing my “unmentionables.” I don’t wash those, ahem, items in the washing machine because, well, my mama told me not to (would you want to have those washed next to dirt covered t-shirts or sweaty gym socks?) so I still oblige. Plus, they last longer when you take care of them. Shampoo is gentle enough to keep the delicate fabrics vibrant but tough enough to get them squeaky clean.
So, if you see a break down of a recent shopping excursion where I’ve gotten quite a few bottles of shampoo, don’t judge. Just have pity on me….lots and lots of pity. :o)
