Don't you hate when you run out of your favorite perfumed body lotion, and this is all that you get when you squeeze the tube?
I hate the feeling, especially when the lotion is part of your expensive designer perfume set that includes the shower gel, the body lotion, and the perfume . . . just the perfect combination!
And forget about buying the body lotion by itself, because in many occasions it costs more than the perfume!
Well, if you are ready to throw that tube away . . . don't do it YET!
As you well know, necessity is the mother of invention . . . indeed, and if to that you add frugality, then you have the perfect combination!
As it happened, one day I wanted to use my special perfume set, all of it together, from shower gel, to the body lotion; and when I squeezed the tube, all I got was two drops. I was upset, but at the same time I was in a mission to not let that ruin my mood. So this is what I did . . .
Cut the tube a little higher than half way . . .
. . . just like this.
. . . and when you look inside, you won't believe how much lotion your are about to throw away!
Now, the top portion of the tube will become the actual lotion cap.
Just use your index finger, transfer the lotion from the top portion of the tube to the bottom, or if it's just a little bit, use it on the the spot.
Next, using a paper towel, or a rag, clean any remaining trace of lotion from it, to leave it completely clean like this.
Now, all you have to do is place the clean upper top of the tube over the bottom portion, to use it as the cap. You'll have to gently squeeze the sides of the bottom, but it will fit just perfectly!
And just like that . . .
voilà . . . you'll have body lotion for at least another 5 more times . . . ☺ you are welcome!
