Default measuring scoops

I am sure this is posted here somewhere but I felt its time to remind everyone that still uses regular detergent, to measure. The scoop on my box of tide said, 1/3 scoop for regular loads. When I measured that out using a glass measuring cup, it came to 1/3 cup. I replaced the scoop with a 1/3 cup tool, so I know not to "go over" that amount. I had my regular measuring scoops, I didn't want to dedicate to boxes of soap, so I found odd ones at the thrift store and dedicated them to soap, as well as sugar, etc. Whatever you know you use a certain amount in. This way I don't waste or worse, overuse...the bonus is you don't have to wash them every time you use that product....

Default

I have learned over the years to do the same. I have 2 small children that like to play in my baking drawer. Every time I go to the dollar store (about once a month) I tend to pick up a set of measuring spoons or cups. I have them every where in my house. They are cheap and they make it easy to keep track of how long something lasts too.
