Every last drop

- Hi everyone! Is it correct to say "Have you ever put a washing up liquid bottle upside down only to get its every last drop?" in this case?

Your answers will be greatly appreciated.

I would say "Have you ever turned a washing-up bottle upside down simply so you could squeeze out the very last drop?"

It's less fiddly just to add a small amount of water to the residual washing-up liquid (US = dish soap), which will decrease its viscosity enough to allow it to be squirted out in the normal way.
