Get More Out of Your Tube Containers - Toothpaste, Lotions etc.

Tei Fu Massage Lotion
How about a frugal tip to make your lotions, sunscreens, toothpaste and anything that is dispensed from a tube last longer? When it seems you've squeezed the last of what you can get out of that tube, squeeze it downward from the top to be sure you get everything from the top part of the tube down to at least the middle. Then get the scissors and cut a portion of the tube off at the top part. Not the part below where the lotion, etc. comes out.

Tei Fu Massage Lotion, which is how she keeps her arthritic joints moving, and tight neck and shoulders relaxed. When I had migraines I used to use it on my temples and neck along the brain stem. So we want to get all we can out of every product we use in a tube. After doing this we still get 4-5 uses, so to keep it from drying out, put a lid on top so air can't get into it.

You will find that there is a lot more of whatever was in the tube, settled along the sides and bottom. You can scoop this out and use it. The photo shows one of my wife's favorite products.
