Don't throw out that "empty" tube or plastic bottle of hand lotion.
You might think there isn't anything left in it because you squeeze and all you get is a "fart" of air and maybe a small blob of lotion.
They're made that way on purpose.......
Set it aside and get yourself a screw top jar, cheap plastic ones are available from Reject shops ans Cheap as Chips places.
Then do this>>>
But you get the idea.
Don't restrict yourself to hand lotions and creams either.
This works for face creams, shampoos, conditioners too.
