WFMW: The Soapy Washer

Everyone needs one of these:

I don't know how anyone survives without it, I truly don't. We forgot to get refills for ours, and we didn't have it for like a day, and my entire house fell apart. There were dishes everywhere, the laundry piled up, the bathrooms were filthy, the yard needed to be mowed, the kids got sick, the dog had fleas, the cat puked in the bed, the taxes were due, and the bills were all late. It was a housekeeping disaster. But as soon as we got our refills, all was right with the world.

You don't have to get the Libman one. We actually prefer the generic ones that are our grocery store's brand. It doesn't matter. But you need one. Stat. Trust me. It's in the cleaning aisle, with the laundry soap and the mops and whatnot. Thank me later.

HAHAHAH...we use this too! I keep mine sitting upright in it's own little canister on a sink shelf so the dish soap doesn't drip out. It was a "secret" my mom let me in on when i married..she bought me 3 of them! i definately don't know what i'd do without this convenient little bugger... :)
