Translucent Flip-Spout Bottles
I love these little bottles!!
I purchased these bottles for a few things. Initially it was to have travel sized lotions. Then I discovered that the small one is the perfect size if you wanted to bring your own coffee creamer to a restaurant. I use them more for that!!
I wouldn't bring them traveling because of the flip top and my paranoia. I put it in a ziplock back if I bring it as a creamer.

think out of the box
Travel bottles and condiment bottles work great for the mobile
artist. So much easier to transport and dispense the paint I need
instead of lugging around giant bulk paint bottles with pumps that
are always getting clogged.

Clogs and Not Leakproof
I bought a few of these because there just aren't enough Nalgene size options for travel bottles. I love the Nalgene bottles and they've never let me down, but I needed something for shampoo that was a bit bigger than the 4oz. AND was a fliptop.
In theory, these are perfect. In practice, they are not. They leak, not easily, but under pressure they leak. The first time I flew with it packed in my suitcase, my toiletry bag had shampoo leakage. Not a lot, but still leakage. What I also hate is that the hole of the spout is terrible narrow. I'm not sure how it could be he product I use since I change it up, but the spout of my body wash and face wash is ALWAYS clogging. When I squeeze to try and break the clog, the liquid comes through the seams. Since I don't typically carry a paperclip or safety pin into the shower, especially when at the gym, I have to take the lid off and usually spill my very thin face wash mostly on the shower floor.
At this rate, I would've been better with the Nalgene screw top.

Simple Is Sometimes Best
Bought an economical gallon size of my favorite liquid soap and needed smaller containers for easier "sinkside" use. These containers were perfect since the soap is not recommended for pump dispensers [except for foaming pumps]. Reasonably-priced, easy to fill and use, easy to see when time to refill. A simple container with no worries about mechanisms that might break - which seems to happen a lot with pump or sprayer containers. Would like to see a 16-oz size as well for use in the shower.
