Get at ALL the lotion in your tube…

How to cut a lotion tube to access the last bits of product

If you’re thrifty like me, you become frustrated when you can’t access the last bits of product that comes in a tube or bottle. With a pair of scissors and a plastic baggie, you’ll be singing “nevermore!”

When you’re down to the last bits in a lotion or hair product tube, grab some sturdy scissors and cut the tube in half. Presto! Access to all that leftover goop! To ‘close’ it, once it’s cut in half, just collapse one half onto the other. (See picture). You can then wrap that in a plastic bag to help keep it from drying out.
