Yes, I will squeeze the tooth paste tube for all its worth and also add water to the soaps and use them before the throw away. For lotion bottles, once they go below the pump straw, I will open it. Every time, i want to use, I will hold them upside down and tap them so that the lotion at the bottom will come to the front and I will squeeze it out. If the bottle is not a pump type, I will leave it upside down, once there is very less lotion in it. I am do not like wasting stuffs.
