This Unusual $14 Amazon Find Will Help You Use Up Every Last Drop of Your Favorite Products (Yes, Even Honey!)
If you’re the type of person who needs to use out every last drop of soap in a pump bottle or condiment in a squeeze bottle, trust me — you’re not alone. I’ve yet to find a way to use up everything in every bottle, and if I didn’t love my go-to products so much, I’d probably switch some of them out solely because of their impractical containers. Rounded tops make it impossible for the bottles to hold themselves upside down, so I either have to awkwardly prop them up or throw them out before they’re completely empty. However, I recently discovered a little gadget on Amazon that will ensure I get to use every single bit of what I bought. Instead of fighting with containers, shaking them relentlessly to get out those last squeezes, the Flip-It! Bottle Emptying Kit promises to be the remedy I’ve been looking for.
All bottles aren’t created equal, which is why this kit is designed to fit different-sized top diameters. It comes with three adapters to fit standard small, medium, and large bottle opening sizes, with XS and XXS sold separately. Once the original bottle cap is removed, it gets replaced with the kit’s gasket, adapter, and dispensing stand. It might sound like more work than it’s worth, but just think about all the bottles you’ve thrown away before they’re empty. This kit could be the thing to give them an extended life — just check out the 2,300 five-star customer reviews. “I’ve always disliked pump bottles for lotion. You can never get it all. This product solves that problem,” said one Amazon reviewer. “It is easy to assemble. Yes, you have to screw a couple items together, but it’s a piece of cake. There’s a variety of tops that should fit whatever bottle you may want to stand on end … Where was this product all these years?”
I have a long list of bottle-emptying methods that I’ve picked up over the years. I’ve tried flipping it upside down and banging the base of it, tapping it roughly against the countertop, and my ultimate favorite, shaking it like a Polaroid picture. But the Flip-It Kit guarantees you won’t have to do any of these time-consuming tricks. “I will never fight with a pump bottle again,” said one reviewer, who called this kit a “life-altering” invention. “As soon as it gets difficult to pump anything out of any bottle, I will waste no time in ‘flipping it.’ I’m so glad someone created this. Upside-down bottles are such a small annoyance in life, but this simple solution really means a lot.”
Across the board, it sounds like the bottle emptying kit works exactly as it should. As a frequent tea drinker, I have multiple bottles of honey in my cabinet that are turned upside down so I’m able to get the last bits, and I’m interested to see if the Flip-It! kit will help save some strain on my poor fingers. Other customers have used this nifty device for syrup, oils, dishwashing liquid, and even dishwasher detergent.
If you’re trying to squeeze out a liquid that’s particularly thick or heavy, Flip-It! suggests running warm water over bottles to help the contents shift when turned upside down. And while the cap can be a pain to clean between uses, it’s doesn’t sound like too much of a challenge.
Imagine getting every last drop out of your buys rather than being defeated by bottles that make it hard to reach the bottom! This $14 gadget could be the clever solution your kitchen has been craving.
