mini dropper bottles
i am leaving for my JMT hike in a week or so and i was at the drug store to find empty dropper bottles to repackage toothpaste, DEET, DB soap, etc and i couldnt find any! any alternative sources i can use instead this last minute in the game?
For toothpaste just put drops on a sheet of wax paper and let them dry a few days. To use, just chew it up and start brushing. Works very well. Or, just use baking soda. Add salt if you need more abrasion.I use spent mini-hand-sanitizer spray bottles for DEET and sunblock. I don't know if you can get spray versions in the USA though.

Michaels or Hobby Lobby should have mini dropper bottles. I find mine in the painters' section.
Awesome links! Thanks.
This might be too late for your needs, but I've bought all my containers from:http://www.usplastic.com/catalog/default.aspx?catid=469&gclid=CLv9hYbxjrgCFUFyQgod8QcAGQ&gclsrc=aw.dsYou end up buying a billion little bottles but the price is excellent. I've been surprised how easily I've been able to find uses for all the extra bottles I've amassed. Good luck.
Sara,your link is #2 on my list of hyper links.

Anna, instead of numbers, perhaps put the website name at least. I know I didn't look at each of the numbers to see what they were.

Dharma dog,ultra light designs is #1 on my hyper link list.
Anna...please take note of Jake's post.
Jake ,you could just take a second to click on it or you could take the time to look up all the different stores that sell the droppers and then type each one(me I'm an extremely slow at typing)and make the hyper links,or you could just complain...it's up to you :)
Dharma Dog,You could take note also on how about making some hyper links so I don't have to waste my time cutting and pasting yours.

Your welcome Richard I am glad it was helpful for you :)
I'm just giving a suggestion. I could care less if you take it or not. You are the one that wants to put links to stuff in every thread so i'm suggesting that having names and not numbers is more likely to be clicked on instead of others posting actual links. In the time you posted that you had already posted the link DD posted you could have typed the names of the websites instead of numbers. I will doubleclick, right click, open in new tab DharmaDog's non hyperlink before clicking random numbers. It is not wasting time because I know exactly what he is posting and if i want to go to it or not. if the forum platform wasn't built in 1987 hyperlink markups would be simple.

Anna...stop cutting and pasting and simply highlight and right click. Do you need a hug today?
removed my annoying post.
I will doubleclick, right click, open in new tab DharmaDog's non hyperlink before clicking random numbers. You can roll your mouse over that confusing number and the URL will show up in the lower left of your browser window. Sorry Anna that you are getting piled on for the grave crime of making your links clickable.
Thanks Spelt!for the kind words :)
i'm not piling on. i made a suggestion.
