Hi! This is Grace Fitzpatrick here on behalf of Expert Village and I am going to talk to you about using different kinds of soap when you are washing the dishes. Make sure you get liquid dish soap and not automatic dishwasher detergent because there is a big difference. One thing you don't want to do is put hand dishing washing soap in your dishwasher. So just always be sure to read actually what kind of soap it is when you buy it. You can get different kinds of soap that have added moisturizers and are good for also cleaning your hands while you are cleaning the dishes. But since we have gloves on, we don't even have to worry about that. So that is really if you are not using gloves or if you don't have any. When soap starts to run out, there is some little tricks you can do to make it last longer. Really one thing about soap is a little goes a long way. So if you have like a little bit of soap left and you put some water in it and say about half as much water as there is soap, like a 2 to 1 ratio of water, shake it up. You can actually make the soap lasts for a couple of weeks normally and you won't have to go buy a whole new jar. Actually this amount of soap is very concentrated. So here we have a full thing of soap and I bet if were to fill it with just as much water, it would last a lot longer and frankly you wouldn't notice the difference.
