Warm bath lotion in the bathwater

Marykz's daughter's getting the luxury treatment!

My daughter doesn't like to get out of the warm bath and have to have cold lotion spread on her dry skin.  So, I put the (closed) bottle of lotion in the warm bath water for the last few minutes of bathtime to warm up the lotion.  We have a plethora of containers in the bath as toys for pouring water, so I just filled one, let it drift in the bath and left the bottle in it.  Voila!  Warmer lotion, happier girl.

We also use the time-tested hack of warming up the towels in the dryer for that spa-like experience....
