Having gone through ‘a phase’ some years back I have about eight part-used bottles of fairly cheap aftershave to dispose of. Any suggestions for alternative uses please?

    Put some on material and place in draws / wardrobes. Unless it absolutely honks!

    Leave the lid off and keep it in the bathroom, or use as a bathroom spray if it has a spray head.

    Chuck it down the loo before you hit the nest
    if you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    Thanks for the suggestions. I wonder if shelters would accept unsealed toiletries but will pursue that one first

    Don't know if this still works, but it used to make a good antimister on car windows.

    Try first on a small side window patch - clean window then polish with a bit of aftershave and if it does the job then it still works.

    You take me back. A friend at college used to use "Amarige" to clean her acetates before re-using them (1992, pre-PowerPoint :D).

    It depends. We've got some hygiene poverty collection points but they stipulate must be unused/unopened. We also have somewhere run by a rector and she says the people she passess items on to are desperate and it doesn't matter if it's part used.
