This tip is for those who use "pour it out fish oil" rather than fish oil capsules... and store their oil in the fridge.
Which is really where all fish oil should be stored, including those in capsules,to keep it from going rancid.
Anyways... what I've noticed, is that what's left in the bottle, is considerably more than you'd first think. How much more?
I've gotten an extra 6-8 teaspoons out of an "empty" $38 Carlson's 16 oz fish oil bottle using this trick which I'm going to share with you here.
Simply run very hot water into a bowl, put the capped bottle in for a soak.
The water doesn't need to come up anymore than an inch or two... you don't want your bottle to become bouyant and tip over.
The hot water will warm the remaining fish oil that has congealed on the bottom of the bottle and cause it to become liquid... so that you can pour it out onto your waiting teaspoon.
Because the bottle is so very dark, there's no way of knowing that there's quite a bit of oil left. But now you know.
At $38 a bottle, $48 retail, you'll want to get every last drop!
This can be repeated, with the bottle returned to the fridge... the warming procedure repeated until there really IS no oil left.
Have a fun day!
