Works for Me Wednesday: Soap foam pump refill

I find that refills for the Kandoo and other foaming soap pump products are costly. With the combo of sales and coupons, you can purchase the initial pump at a reasonable cost, but the price of the refills will kill you. I refill them myself. I twist the top off of the foamer bottle and pour about 1" of regular concentrated strength liquid dish soap into the bottom of the container. I then slowly refill with warm water to the fill line. Recap and swirl around gently, so as not to foam it to death. I have also found that turning the bottle upside down and swirling gently helps to keep from clogging the feeder tube with full strength soap. It doesn't like full strength soap! Turn the bottle rightside up and it's ready! Voila!

A smile on my Sunday:
- K- had swimming lessons for 45 minutes and was extremely hungry when we left. I was too, so I decided that we could take a rare spin through Burger King's drive thru. We each got a double cheeseburger and that was it. (Though she was trying to talk me into a kid meal because they have "pinkalicious ice cream, I think!") On the way home she asked, "Mommy, if I plant this seed from my hamburger [bun] will a hamburger tree grow?" "That's a good question, but nope, I'm sorry to say that it won't."

K's hamburger tree question had me thinking of that old song, "On top of spaghetti, all covered with cheese..." Hee hee!

Good advice on the refills. They are INSANELY expensive.

Hope you have internet soon. We miss you!
