What kind of household containers are easy to use if I have arthritis?

If you have arthritis, you can utilize easy-to-use containers like these:
  • Put detergent into a small, plastic pitcher that is easier for you to pick up and pour than a heavy box of laundry or dishwasher detergent.
  • Pump bottles make dispensing easier. Everything from moisturizing lotion and liquid soap to ketchup and salad dressing will dispense more easily in a pump bottle -- no tops to unscrew or heavy bottles to lift.
  • Reuse empty liquid soap or lotion bottles or buy empty bottles at discount or bathroom supply stores.
