I can't get the last drops of liquid Tide out of the jug. Any tips?

I leave it upside down and open on a basket of clothes to be washed. Or, if there are some clothes I want to presoak in a sink or hand wash, I just add some warm water to the jug and empty it that way.

Pull out a knife or a pair of scissors. Cut it open.

Obviously OP doesn't know how to get the crap that is stuck in his nose out.

Also, is the detergent plastic ug good to put into the blue recycle box?
Is hard to rinse it clean as it make bubbles.

All bottles putting in recycle box should be cleaned prior, so I wonder about the detergent jug.

In the past, I have put liquid tide directly on a stain, and it took out the colour of the fabric. I don't currently use Tide... It is someone else's Tide.

I have used liquid Tide to clean tub grime, and prefer it over Vim as Vim leaves powdery grit behind that I notice in my baths. However, if u notice, I can't remove that spout from liquid Tide bottles. So, I gotta jam a napkin in there to sop up the detergent, and it is awkward and inconvenient.

I noticed neighbours of mine put their empty Tide bottles in recycling, but without rinsing. That is a no-no.

You went into your neighbour's blue box to see if there was still some liquid in the bottle?

Anyway... when the washing machine is filling up, hold the almost-empty bottle under the water that's flowing in, swish, then dump into the machine, repeat a few times, that ought to do it.

^ Was looking for codes. I personally detest blue Tide liquid because of the overpowering fragrance.
