Here Comes plans? UGGGH!    Friday, April 3, 2020

Removing More Lotion From a Bottle - Random Life Saver, Err Hair Saver    Monday, August 20, 2018

So there you are trying to do your hair, and that favorite leave in conditioner or serum, or whatever, is pretty much done. But as creamy things go, there's that little bit left that won't come out no matter the pounding or shaking (or swearing!) you do. But if you can get to it, you can use it. What to do, what to do? I inadvertently discovered a way to get more out that I hadn't thought of before that did not require scissors, knives or any tools of any kind. I mean while you're in the middle of doing your hair or face, who wants to stop and go find some gizmo or gadget? So back to my unexpected solution.


Holding the bottle upside down and after tapping the bottom (of bottle) in that upside down position as much as I can, and after sticking my finger in thru the hole and really not getting enough to complete the hair job, I decided to try, wait for it....the pinky finger. Whoah! Total game changer. Seriously. Don't know what it was or why it worked but a HUGE difference. i got all this glorious product out!  Cue halleluiah chorus! I then tried the ring finger. Same thing! More than I could ever got out using the "default" forefinger. Seriously. Why hadn't I thought of that before?


And there's your random unexpected tip, (life hack?) you probably didn't know you needed. But hopefully can use!
