A while ago, I saw a product on the TV show "The Shark Tank" that was a tiny spatula tip on a long stick. It was used to clean out the last of the lotion in tall bottles that were too tough to cut open and scrape out. It's now a million dollar idea. I was doing the dishes this morning and came across some Slurpee spoon-tip straws and realized they could be used for the same thing.
I just cleaned out one of my thick, tall lotion bottles and have more cream than I imagined I would! I have designated one straw for lotions and makeup, and another one to clean the tough corners of my bathroom and kitchen where a lot of gunk jams up. I am thrilled with these straws!
I just take any of these bottles, etc and take the lid off, lay on side and microwave 10-15 seconds ONLY, then invert into a small container like tupperware you can seal and then use the product. When up to 2 ounces can be left in these bottles, use your voice and call the company to tell them of the displeasure you have in emptying it. Back a few decades our moms would set the bottle in hot water in the sink for the same thing.
This is a very good idea. Love, it !!
I don't think I've ever warmed up non-edible things like lotions to get them out. I do for peanut butter! Good tip.
