It’s the simple trick that budget-conscious mums around Australia are obsessed with - and we couldn’t love it more!
First revealed by super saver mum PinkyAndThrifty on Instgram, it involves cutting your dishwashing tablet in half before using it.
Why? Because they still works just as well!
That’s right! Posting a pic of her $4.49 Aldi dishwashing tablets with a knife and several tablets cut in half, PinkyAndThrifty writes: ‘Because they still clean just as good #budgetmum #debtfreecommunity #140dollarsaweekbudget #feedingmyfamilyforless #frugalliving’
The hack means that you can now get 60 washes out of the Aldi pack of 30 dishwashing tablets - meaning you get double the value from one box. Woah!
Now thousands of mums around the country are following her lead - and they say it’s life-changing.
Says Instagram blogger ThatOrganisedMum: ‘After seeing @pinkyandthrifty say how well she found the Aldi dishwashing tablets to work even when chopped in half I decided to try it myself! Still cleans just as well and now will last even longer 🙌🏼🙌🏼’
Says another: ‘I’ve just started doing this and it’s life-changing! It cleans exactly the same and we’re saving so much money. Best tip EVER!’
Adds a third: ‘I've been cutting my as well...... Husband not saying a word but just looking at me like I'm some crazy 😂’
Says one more: ‘This is the best tip I’ve ever heard. It absolutely works the same - and I’ve used it with Finish tablets, Coles and ALDI. Anyone who uses a full tablet is just wasting their money!’
