Woman Claims Weird Hack Makes Squash Last Twice As Long
A woman has come up with a genius idea to make her squash and soft drinks last twice as long.
Stephanie Palin, 40, from Cheshire has three children aged between seven and 18. After watching how much squash they were wasting every day - simply through spillage - she decided to do something about it.
The special needs teaching assistant managed to come up with a brilliant idea - and it only cost her £4. She bought coffee syrup pumps from Amazon and fitted them to the bottles.
"I have a husband with a visual impairment and three children aged seven, 11 and 18," Stephanie told Latestdeals.co.uk.
"After watching how much squash they were wasting through spillage when making and getting through a silly amount of squash per week, I thought about how I could reduce this.
"First I tried to find a nice pump bottle for it to go in, but they either aren't nice or are glass bottles which aren't safe or food grade.
"I then started looking a temporary measure whilst I continued to look for a nice pump container. I looked on Amazon and eBay and thought I would try the Monin pump, so for £4 I bought one pump to see if would fit and it did to the 1.75 or two litre squash bottles, but not the square bottles."
But Stephanie came up with a solution to that too, explaining she simply decanted the square bottled squash into Robinsons or Vimto bottles.
"This worked great so I ordered one more so we had two. They work amazingly and you can either wash them by hand or pop them through the dishwasher," she continued.
The brilliant idea means the family now go through at least half the amount of juice per week, saving money in the process.
"It reduces the amount of squash you go through by at least half," she added. "Where one bottle wasn't even lasting us one week it's just over two weeks now.
"You can order the Monin pump via Amazon or eBay. They seemed to have jumped up a little in price, but I have given the link out to so many people!
"It helps people save money during lockdown, and I also use a similar pump for my cleanser and toner as I just seem to go through it so fast also!"
We are so trying this tip! You can buy the pump on Amazon here.
