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. lol I was thinking of maybe getting a syringe or something to make it easier. Anyway, I was wondering how other people fill their bottles.

I remove the dropper tips from the bottle before filling.

Same here, the clear (sort of) dropper tops pop out and in pretty easy.

i use the cover to remove the tip by bending it back, that way i don't contaminate the contents. useful if filling contact lens solution and such. to replace the tip, just place the cover (the tip will still be in the cover) and start screwing it back on being careful not to touch either cap or tip....

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. :)
