The Great Lotion Extravaganza
(I did this back on February 15 during my sort-of-a-blog-break. I'd had these mostly empty bottles of lotion sitting around forever. I finally bought the small shampoo bottle on February 10th, and then THAT sat around for a while. Finally, I put the task on my List of Things to Do and just did it. It took 10 minutes.)
Pump lotion is so convenient. Except when the lotion gets too low for the pump to work. And dang it this stuff is too expensive to just toss! So what do you do?
Firstly, you get some really good kitchen shears & cut the bottle in half.
Then you scoop the lotion into a funnel (note my third hand there - a handy bottle from under the sink).
Mush the lotion down through the funnel into the bottle (I got the little shampoo bottle in the make-up aisle at the grocery store) & there you go!
