Those monstrous bulk laundry detergent bottles are designed to last a long time. If you only plan to use your RV for weeks or a couple of months, you could save a lot of space (and weight) by taking only what you’ll use.

One of Dano’s viewers had another related tip for minimizing the mess when cooking hamburger meat,

If I plan on making anything other than Burgers with my ground beef I cook it, drain it and rinse the extra grease with hot water through a strainer. Let it cool down and drain the moisture for a few minutes then put it in a quart freezer bag, make sure you squeeze the excess air and seal and freeze. It thaws very easily and makes great chili, etc very quickly with much less mess. Yes I know you loose a bit of flavor from rinsing the fat off, but it also makes it healthier.
