Would This Work?

Using allll the deodorant, from The Tightwad Gazette:

After years of feeling cheated by not being able to get that last little bit of solid antiperspirant deodorant out of the container, I finally decided it was time to try.
I dug all the remaining stuff out of the container with a knife and put it in a glass custard cup. I put it in the microwave for two minutes. Using a spatula, I scraped all the melted antiperspirant into an old container and let it cool. Four used-up antiperspirant containers filled a recycled container half full.

Huh. Well, it takes me months and months to go through one container of deodorant, so it would take me years to get that one half-filled container this way. But if you go through deodorant quickly, this might be worth a try.

Sharing is caring!

  1. Cathy, yeah! I didn’t think of that. Also, I wonder what it would do to the deodorant to heat it up, melt it, and reform it like that. It could change it enough to make it useless.
