The maid is an employee who works for money. You can afford to go to Cuba. Please leave those who work for you cash next time. Would you prefer your wage earner--whoever that is--to come home with a trial size of shampoo from someone who earns more?
The trial size are great for sending with the kids when they go to camp. If your child "forgets" the shampoo bottle at the end of the week at camp, so be it. At least it wasn't a large bottle of shampoo that he/she forgot. We went to Cuba last winter and to save space in our suitcases I took trial size bottles of my favorite shampoo and conditioner along for us to use. I also took trial sizes along to leave as a thank-you for the maid who cleaned our room.
I use a plunger type syringe (I think it came from the pediatrician's office with meds). Remove the plunger, squeeze the syringe full of lotion, reinsert the plunger, and shoot it into the hole of the smaller tube. Be careful not to overfill, it will come squeezing out on its own if you do. Be prepared for an overflow.
I used to try to line up the holes of the 2 tubes and alternately squeeze and "inhale" the 2 tubes. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't. This is a super easy fix, just keep the syringe for the next application.
