Don’t you hate trying to salvage those last few rounds smears of mayonnaise or mustard from the jar or bottle? Well, so does YouTube user and inventor “Ron”—so he decided to do something about it.

Ron’s rather amazing improvement of traditional jars and bottles is simple: Lift the bottom of the jar to the top. That way, you can get all of the remnants of your condiments, lotions, or cheese dip, without having to reach way down into the neck of the jar. He stresses that his design also has environmental implications, in that its reusable design will reduce the amount of waste.

OK, while Ron may certainly not be winning any voice-over or video production awards anytime soon, his redesigned bottle could certainly revolutionize cabinets everywhere.
