Which products could we use much less of (ie., less than the manufacturer’s recommended amount) and still get the same result?

    Laundry detergent is a good example. The agitation of the washing machine is what really cleans the clothes, and a lot of people will tell you that you could probably cut the amount of laundry soap you use in half and not really notice a difference. Companies such as Proctor & Gamble have plans to release caps with easier to read lines for their recommended amount, which many will probably see is lower than what they have been doing (like full cap).

    Shampoo!  There really is no need to lather, rinse and REPEAT.  In fact, it has been suggested that even daily shampooing is not good for our hair.  Shampooing too frequently can strip natural oils and damage our hair.

    Flea repellants such as Advantage which is pesticide applied directly onto the pets skin.  I have been told by Pacific Animal Advocates not to apply once a month as directed, but to wait until I see a flea which has been 6-7 weeks after the last application.  Since it’s a pesticide, it’s better for the pet to only use when necessary.

      Very interesting. I was always under the impression that flea medicine should be used regularly. Do you know if there is any downside to your dog in waiting until you see a flea before reapplying?
