Step 1: Condition It!

Take a bottle of hair conditioner, and squirt a little bit on top of the suds in the sink.

Step 2: Add Some Water

Run the water (you might need to close the drain for a moment and let water fill a little).

Step 3: Swish, Swish, Swish

Run your hand back and forth to mix the conditioner into the water as the water runs on top of it.

Step 4: Down the Drain...

The conditioner should break up the suds and send them down the drain with the water.

Repeat.

But only if necessary.

    I shake salt on too many bubbles

    Never knew conditioner could do that - clever!

    Yeah, I've had that problem, I now use a mixture of 1/2 water 1/2 soap and put it in a hand pump. It's great for washing hands and dishes!
