For what can I use old, thin hand lotion?

Washing should get all the lotion out of your hair except for maybe whatever moisturizing chemicals get absorbed into your hair. I have only used it a few times but ever time i have its worked wonders to keep my hair calm.

I also use it in my hair. It is very easy to use. I have short hair so I just blob it out and then apply it. I use the Lundthan cream but I don't know many people who use it. Try it out! It's also great on my hands obviously.

I read that you can mix vaseline in to thicken it up again, but have never tried it.

You can use it as leather balm!

mix some older lotion into "tan in a tube" it makes it go on more evenly with less streaks.
I have had lotion get so thin it ran out of the tube because I left it in the hot car --
try putting the "too thin lotion" into a mister bottle to spray on
i have bought spray on lotions before & they are alot more expensive than regular !

I've put water in almost empty bottles to get every last bit and used it at the end of a shower as a moisturizer. Pat dry.

This may sound like a crazy question but, I have a bunch of hand lotion and I was wondering if there uses for it other than the obvious use for it. Is there any other cleaning or conditioning uses for hand lotion?
