Setec Astronomy Posted December 30, 2014 Share Posted December 30, 2014 Because of the way I generally use ONR, I'm measuring out 1/4 ounce portions. I have a little 1 oz. plastic measuring cup, but it's sometimes tough pouring 1/4 oz. out of a quart bottle. It dawned on me that maybe the quart bottles should come from the factory with some sort of dispenser top like a shampoo bottle. I notice the little 8 oz. bottles come with a spout top, so someone at OPT already thought of this, just not on the quarts (trying to pour a small amount out of the gallon would be even worse, but I don't think there's a readily-available solution for that, other than a pump). Who thinks the quart bottles should come with some sort of dispenser top? In the meantime I scavenged an old wax bottle spout top that I'm going to try next time and see how it works. I was also looking at US Plastics, and they have spout tops, disc tops (the kind that comes on the small polish bottles, that you push the edge and they pop up, like the kind that are on many (hair) shampoos), and push/pull tops (like a sports water bottle). I may try an assortment of these if I can find something else to buy from there to make buying $1-2 of caps and paying $9 shipping worth it. I'm also eyeing up a shampoo cap (disc style) from an almost-empty bottle. Not sure if any of these dispenser caps are going to work ok with a thin liquid like ONR since they are usually for thicker products. I guess another option (for the end-user) would be a pro-blend bottle proportioner, but at 1/4 ounce I'd be using it down at the bottom of the range. This whole thought process led me to think about dispenser tops for a bunch of other wash products that I have, so ultimately thinking about this was a good exercise!
