Endless dish soap

Years ago there was a Fairy dish soap commercial where a boy wanted to build a rocket using the empty soap bottle. Of course the Fairy dish soap was so plentiful that fay after day the boy was disappointed hearing from his father doing the dishes: "there is still plenty left".

I have been that boy for a few weeks now. I don't want to build a rocket, just want to throw away the old bottle and replace it with the new one I bought weeks ago in anticipation of the soap running out soon.

It feels like less there is left in the bottle the less it gets used. I already had to flip the bottle upside down several days ago so the soap would trip to the tip to get it all out without needing to wait every time for those few drops. Every day I have expected it to run out, but it seems there is still plenty left.
