When I've used up a solid deodorant stick as much as possible, I save the leftover stub (in the container). After accumulating 3 or 4, I pick out the leftover stubs and melt them in the microwave. I then pour the melted deodorant into one of the old containers. Let it harden overnight and you have a brand new deodorant stick!
I do this same thing on chapsticks and lipsticks.
I should start doing this....sounds like a good idea and wouldn't be too much trouble. My husband has used stick deodorant for years and years and I have always noticed he throws it away when there is still some left.
That's a good idea about the chapsticks too! Just think of the interesting flavor combos!!
I tried this before, but gave up because the melted deoderant dripped through the opening at the bottom and just about emptied out. Now that I've seen your suggestion anew, I will stop up the bottom with something to prevent that!
