Everybody has been there: You can tell there's still some shampoo left in a bottle you're holding, but you can't manage to get it out. And then you're left standing there in the shower, awkwardly slapping the bottom of the bottle and trying to squeeze just enough out, when you could be done washing your hair already. Ugh.
You don't want to be wasteful — plus, that sh*t is expensive! — but you probably do end up throwing out bottles that still have product in them (even if you don't realize it!), when you could be using them up instead. That's where Flip-It! comes in — it's a $10 gadget that's designed to help you use up all that product you're missing out on, so you can save money and waste less.
Flip-It! Bottle Emptying Kit, Kitchen & All Purpose, 2-Pack, $9.95, Amazon
So, It's pretty straightforward — each Flip-It! kit comes with a dispensing stand and three different sizes of adapters, so it can fit just about any product that comes in a bottle. You just twist whatever adapter you need on the bottle, stick it on the dispensing stand, close the valve, and flip the bottle upside down. The cap acts as a tripod, so the bottle can stand up upside down, so the shampoo will make its way down to the cap. To use it, you just have to pull open the valve and squeeze. And as a bonus, the Flip-It! cap system is top-shelf dishwasher safe.
It's great for shampoo, but really, the system works for any beauty product or condiment you squeeze out of a bottle or tube. What a time to be alive!
You can find 2-packs (for two bottles each) of the , as well as the , on Amazon. If you want more Flip-It! kits to outfit all the bottles in your home, Amazon also has deluxe 12-piece (enough to outfit 6 bottles) versions of each kit available — check them out below.
