I think we all forget to do this from time to time when things get hectic at home. That being said, whether you are a life-long penny pincher or just need to get your family through a hard time, diluting products is a powerful, super-easy way to get the job done.

Some items easily diluted with no perceptual difference in quality?

  • shampoo
  • conditioner
  • hairspray
  • canned cheese sauce
  • juice
  • tomato sauce (for soup broth)
  • leftover gravy
