Thanks for the input!

Thanks!
Haha...that makes it a lot easier! I didn't realize they popped off. I'm glad I bought two packs, since I've already semi-destroyed a pack. :)

Filling Droppers
I got tired of trying to fill my BPL mini droppers the other day and ended up just cutting off the whole tapered section. It worked fine, but obviously removed the dropper feature of the bottles. l...

Joby Gorillapod
I almost bought one the other day, but I didn't want to deal with pulling in and out of my pack to take pictures. I got to thinking that maybe I could just wrap it around the lower part of my t...
