Soap and shampoo bottles

+6
Answered
Does anyone know what to do with soap and shampoo bottles that really need to be turned upside down but have covers that don't allow them to sit upside down. I'm looking for some kind of a cup or something to set them in so the end part of the bottle is usable.

    The easiest thing for me to do is add a tbs or so of water to the shampoo bottle. Swish gently so that the shampoo left in the bottom mixes with the water and thins out. Once the water and shampoo are mixed thoroughly, you can use that thinner mixture to shampoo, you'll just need to use a bit more of it.

    I totally agree with Organize! Usually by the time you get to the bottom, the shampoo is thicker anyway so adding a little water won't hurt it. Worse case scenario is that the shampoo will be a bit thinner so you might need to use a bit more. Oops, I just read the last line Organize wrote and it looks like we really think the same on this topic. :) Wishing you the best.

    I save it til I use some shampoo out of a new bottle. Then I pour the small amount from the first container into the new one.

  • I just add water to the container and shake it up and use it as is.

    If you really want to keep the shampoo in the original bottle turn it upside down and prop it up with other products (easiest if you have other products). Or you could glue a large button to the top of the bottle. I don't know what glue to use, but a store that carries craft supplies should be able to help you with that. If you always use the same product you should be able to save the bottle cap and reuse it over and over again.
