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!
