    Anyone like me with arthritic fingers will have problems using tubes of this and that. There are some implements to help but they don’t work all that well. I have found that accessing some items that are not prone to dry out can be much simplified. Currently I am using heel balm and I just cut the bottom off the tube and empty it into a suitable jar (vaseline jars are good). So much easier to just dip a finger into it.
    One of the reasons the manufacturers use tubes is because you can’t see how little product is really in the big tube!!

    What a good idea abirdo I have never thought of doing that but will keep it in mind from now on.

    Having had my carpets cleaned some time back, I keep getting little hints from the carpet cleaners  on all sorts of  different lotions, potions and cleaners to make at home to save money etc.

    This latest one I thought I would pass on as it sounded good, its a cleaner for shower recesses, most shower cleaners are expensive and  I have not been that happy with.

    Fill a 500ml spray bottle 3/4 with white vinegar, top with warm water add about 30 drops of tea tree oil_ spray on recess leave for about 20mins before rinsing off with warm water. I haven’t had time to try this as yet so I hope it does work well.

    I used to just spray with White King  to clean the grout I read recently you should not use as it eats away the grout.

    Abirdo, excellent hint.  Thankyou.

     

    Betty, I have a council lady come to clean, and I just might suggest your hint  to her.
