    Getting That Last Little Bit of Lotion

    Emptying that last little bit of sun screen (I originally did write "sun tan") lotion into a new bottle can be a messy and time consuming task. Here is an easier way.

    I don't guess I have ever bought a bottle of suntan lotion,never really understood the purpose for it. But I do often drain the contents from nearly empty bottles of other things in just the same manor those gallon sized Pumice hand cleaners with the pumps are the worst at not being able to get the last several ounces of product out without doing exactly as you have done.

    Frank,

    I agree that suntan lotion is useless. I meant to say sun screen lotion which reduces my chance of skin cancer. Here is Phoenix, this is a very common problem.

    I know that some folks are probably a lot more susceptible to skin cancer than others. It must be the little bit of Comanche and Cherokee in my genes that offset the German and Norse in me, or more probably my love for hot and spicy foods I eat habaneros like most would banana peppers in summer I often turn as brown as Mahogany. My wife uses some kind of sunscreen about SPF 5 or 10 she says it helps to keep her skin from drying out so bad I just can't stand the oily greasy feeling on my skin

    Should be able to 3D print a nice collar. I just printed a 3/4" diameter plug for an boat oil drain pan that has threads. Works like the original item.
