I really need to clean out my bathroom cabinets, but what should I do with old bottles of sunscreen, lotions, nail polish and various aerosol hair products?
For starters, if you have barely-used products, consider donating them to a homeless or domestic violence shelter that can use them completely. Otherwise, things like sunscreen, lotion, body wash, shampoo and conditioner bottles can be emptied as best you can into the trash and the bottles can be recycled.
Nail polish and aerosol cans should go to a ToxDrop.
