    @Tim Spencer My water wasn't hot enough, I'm sure! It was starting to come loose, but I messed it up trying to get it started peeling. I know what I did wrong, so next time it'll be different.

    Great idea. I couldn't find any cool old bottles around the house but I did have a Franks Red Hot sauce bottle that needed something done with it. I was gonna do this earlier but was concerned about getting the label off and since my handwriting stinks, I didn't know what to do. Lo and behold, come to TSD and BANG, there it is. Worked perfectly. Thanks for the tip.

    I also transferred some to a small (2 oz.?) glass bottle with a plastic sprayer, so there’s still some plastic involved. At first I didn’t notice much change. If anything it smelled weaker, like it was missing something.

    I didn’t touch it for a good month and tried it recently. Very nice and definitely different. Cleaner I guess. But the plastic bound juice also smells good to me. So now I have two Clubmans.

    To the OP, does the plastic restrictor in the plastic Clubman bottle fit in your glass replacement?

    I ran across something today that, I think, fits into this discussion. My wife was in the process of rinsing a worcestershire sauce bottle to put it in the recycle bin. I noticed it had a flip-top cap and screwed onto the bottle. So, I said to my self...Self! That looks like it just might be a good bottle to use to put AS in. Got to looking at it and found it was a 15 fl oz bottle with a screw-on/off cap that has a flow restrictor built into it and a flip-top. Tailor-made! So, I'm going to mention it here in case you might need to find an easily accessible bottle that you just might already have in the house. It's French's Worcestershire Sauce in a 15 fl oz bottle. I'm posting a picture of it along with another "corked" bottle I got at Hobby Lobby a week or so ago for something like $3. I hope someone can use this idea.

    The plastic restrictor isn't constantly touching the juice so it should effect the scent. The plastic that Pinaud uses for their bottle is cheap and clearly adds a weird smell to the sauce.

    I mean,...plastic bottle for a company that got going in 1830. I'm for real glass for these fellas.

    Anyone do this with Aqua Velva as well?

    I really like how Gillette Cool Wave comes in a glass bottle. I'll be sure to save the empty.

    This would be a good reason to shake it before application, right? That is, to cut down on the weirdness?

    I used a Franks Hot Sauce bottle with the same flip-top. It's very generous with it's pour since the a/s is so much thinner. I'm trying to figure something to put in it to reduce it even more. Did I say it's very generous.
