As inevitably happens with the cute little plastic measuring cup that comes with the large dispensing container of laundry sauce, the residual viscous liquid will cling and harden to the bottom, forming a soft, yet resistant-to-movement gel-like layer, that refuses to pour out.
Over time and repeated uses, this gel disc tends to grow, scaling vertically, adding layer after layer of recalcitrant goo. Thusly, it obfuscates the appropriate measurement pours for ideal clean ratios.
Today, using only a small spoon and homeopathic foundations, I not only liberated the obstinate gel from the measuring cup, I made the resultant slurry infinitely more powerful.
All this by just adding water and stirring.
Homeopathy for the win.
