I know this might be a little weird or a little extreme to some of you, but I really think it’s saved me some serious cash through the years. Instead of tossing “empty” bottles of shampoo or conditioner, I simply remove the caps from the old and new bottles, set the olds on top of the news and drain the leftovers into the new bottle. I’ll prop them up and let them sit all day. It’s amazing how much I’ll get from the “empties!”
You can swirl a little water in the bottom of the old bottle to help move the process along. This also works for body wash, laundry detergent, etc. I’d estimate I get at least another week’s worth of product each time. That really adds up over time.
Pretty please tell me I’m not the only one who does this? Do you get every last drop out of your toiletries, too?
