Get-Every-Last-Drop Container Hacks Everyone Should Know
Waste not: Here's how to squeeze every last ounce of product from your beauty product containers
If you want to get every last drop out of a squeeze-able container, turn it upside down and let gravity do the rest. When it starts sputtering out again (geez, you really want that last teaspoon of shampoo, huh?), cut through the middle of the packaging (be sure to keep it flipped upside down) and scoop out product with your hand. To keep it from drying out, you can use the bottom as a lid -- just squeeze the end and tuck it in.
For smaller squeezable tubes, like the ones made for concealers and eye shadow primers, fuggedabout the upside down trick (these products are too thick to slide) and go straight for the cut.
