When we first started recycling,. I was so overwhelmed. I now had to wash my trash. What else could be added to my overflowing list of to-dos?! We have lots of recycling, as I'm sure you can imagine. This means that we end up with lots of containers in need of rinsing out. Well, I have found an easy way to accomplish this daunting task. Get the kids involved.
Our children love to play in the water, especially the bath. So when I have an empty shampoo, soap, lotion, or body wash bottle, I give it to them in the tub to rinse out. It keeps them busy with a new 'toy" and does a chore at the same time.
