Do you do this?

Whenever you run out of something and there is very little left no matter if it shampoo,conditioner, toothpaste, dishwashing liquid I guess just about anything liquidy do you turn the bottle upside down for awhile then come back and try to use the last drop?...LOL I do this I don't know why maybe it's some kind of disorder my dh thinks I am nuts whenever he sees the bottles upside down (if he's in the mood of being mean) he'll throw them away. and call me

  • I do. I grew up poor so we did all we could to use the very last of everything, and that has stuck with me.My Dh gets irritated when i combine shampoo bottles when there is only a tiny bit left. As my DH tells me lovingly 'you can take the girl outof the trailer park but you cant take the trailor par out of the girl.' LOL.

  • yes I do it too, but it get ridiculous. I mean if it was sputtering last time what makes me think it's going to give me anything significant next time? Sometimes it sits up there, upside down, for like a week after we've opened a new bottle.
    Oh and laundry detergant? Yea I run it under the water and dump it in until it's good and rinsed out. OCD i tell you LOL
