Stop Wasting Lotion and other Bottle Liquids

This is the shower diary, so of course I was fighting getting out the last drops liquids from bottles yesterday.  It was driving me nuts.  Based on the weight, I could tell there was a lot more in the bottle than would come out.  I’ve had this fight many times before, but yesterday it just seemed that all of my potions and lotions were running out – all at the same time.  I drew pictures of contraptions that could fix the problem.  Most lotion tops are the same size (but not all – those $40 bottles are smaller than the $5 bottles of course).

So now that I’ve created this new idea, I figured I’d see who else has already come up with a solution… as that is usually the case with my “next big idea”.  So I find this Lotion Dispenser.

So I like my idea better because you don’t have to keep the contraption on the container all the time (you only need to buy one), and while you may use multiple containers for your liquids, they will be much smaller and if you keep to a 3 ounce container you can travel with them.  With the funnel cone, you can use any size container that you’re emptying and you can select what to fill.

You can use mine in the kitchen too.  Get the last of your sauce or other food liquids.  They can be a bit chunky or not (change the funnel).

Found this too from the Container Store.  Still like my idea better as you may want to go from a large container to a smaller one and the couplers don’t necessarily match up.  Also the lighter bottle is on the bottom and you’ll have a balancing act to deal with.
