Shower Power

September 25th, 2006 at 04:02 pm

Let gravity work for you to help get the most out of your shampoo and conditioner bottles. Stand those suckers upside down on their heads. That's easy if the caps are flat, but if not, many of those shower organizers not only have space for your soaps or razors, but also unintentionally have nicely spaced bars between which you can balance your bottles and create a makeshift dispensing unit. Once your bottle is finally empty, don't throw them out just yet; unscrew the cap and look inside, there's usually a pool of shampoo or conditioner hiding inside. And if you're really frugal (like I am) then once you've attacked the cap, use your conveniently bendable finger to scrape up the amount that has gotten lodged around the actual bottle neck.

And even after that to suck out all the life out of that poor shampoo bottle, add some water, shake it up (surprise, watch it foam right up again) and use that for your hand wash laundry items.

    Are you related to my wife? She does the same thing with the shampoo. My hair is so short only a little dab is all it takes. Any tips about getting that last little bit of toothpaste out of the tube?

    That's exactly what I do...glad I am not the only one! I can usually get another weeks worth of shampoo out of an 'empty' bottle!

    I have been using the old bendable finger to get the last shampoo out of the bottle for a while...glad I am not the only wierd person out there.
    Take that empty bottle (after you rinsed it to get all the bubbles out to realy get your money's worth) and dispense one squirt of baby wash...add about an inch and a half of water put the lid back on and shake the bejeesus out of it...when you are done you will have a bottle full of bubbles that is frugal and fun to wash your kids with. Word of advice when blasting bubbles onto said children try not to get it in their eyes Wink Once you have reached in and taken the conditioner out of the bottle neck with the valuable bendable finger...fill the bottle up about halfway with water...shaking the bejeesus out of it will get that last little bit of conditioner residue from the bottle and dilute it into detangler.
