    Question Using up old products???

    Any one have any ideas on how to use up unused product, specifically conditioner? It doesn't have to be just conditioner it could be shampoo, oils, skin cleansers, etc...I'm looking to thin out my cabinet but I hate throwing stuff out. Any suggestions are much appreciated. If there's already a thread for this I apologize as I couldn't find it.

    I use them as body wash. This stuff mostly has the same ingredients, if anything conditioners will be more moisturizing than typical soaps.

    I clean the tub with old shampoos. Most cleaners bother my husband, Mr. Sensitive Nose.

    I use old shampoos as hand soap or shower soap. I use old conditioners down there especially after a trim or wax. (Sorry if that is TMI.) You can use the oils on your legs, feet, and elbows. Skin cleansers are great on your feet. I have a whole closet full of old shampoo that I use as hand soap and even to wash dishes before I put them into the dishwasher.

    I use my unwanted conditioners for shave gel/cream. They are nice and moisturizing. I use old shampoos as body wash, to refill hand soap pumps and to wash out lingerie.

    Hmmm... I wonder if shampoo could be used as laundry detergent.

    As for conditioner, maybe slather a whole bunch on and do a nice deep conditioning treatment?

    Body wash can be used as bubble bath.
