So I was standing in the laundry today, doing that thrifty housekeepery thing we have all done about nine million times - decanting the very last drops of product A into container B, and I was thinking that there must be a hands-free way to do this... when my eyes alighted upon a packet of bamboo skewers.
(And why do you have a packet of bamboo skewers in the laundry, I hear you ask in elegant parenthesis. Well, to keep the adorable pussycats and dear little blackbirds out of my freshly planted garden beds and pots, of course. Pointy end up! Nothing better!)
So, bamboo skewer in container B:
Product A suspended in mid-air as if by magic, emptying those last drops of thriftyness into container B:
Oooh, I am so clever.
