Found the perfect little bottle for carrying oil
« on: June 02, 2006, 02:10:19 PM »

Today I was going to be out of the house for the first time since I started the diet for my oil dose (I work at home), so I was looking around for something to put 2 TB of oil in and I found my little cache of travel makeup bottles.  I had one with a little pull up/push down spout and it was perfect!   I did wrap it in a plastic baggy just to make sure it didn't leak oil into my purse.  You can get these bottles at beauty supply places (where I get mine) and even some supermarkets and drugstores. They cost 1-2 dollars.

I use the little jam jars with metal lids.  I put a tablespoon of oil in each and take them to work.  Then I add a little water when it's time to take it.  Best thing - no leaks!

I get little plastic medicine bottles from my pediatrician every time the kids are sick. They use these generic bottles, dispensing their liquid meds from the pharmacy's bulk containers into them.

They already have ML measurements on the side. And are reasonably unleaky. Pretty much perfect, once washed. (And washed well--or else, after my oil it's, "Hm, is that the faint taste of Robitussin? Ah, no--acetaminophen.")

And I like the medical association. The oil is my meds!

I use those little toiletry bottles you get at hotels. I keep them around for camping, etc., so I used up an ounce of shampoo and an ounce of shower gel and now I have two little oil bottles.

I use these little 4oz squirt bottles (see my original post here: http://boards.sethroberts.net/index.php?topic=661.0). Put a little water in your mouth, tip your head back and squirt a dose of ELOO. Works great even at work.  :)

Hammer gel bottle
« Reply #6 on: June 22, 2006, 11:00:54 PM »

I had an extra Hammer Gel bottle (sports energy gel) that I use.  It holds 10 oz.  I had to fill it up at 1 tbsp intervals to make the ounce markings with a Sharpie pen on the side.  Works great and I know I'm getting the right dosage.

I tried a white film canister (remember those from the 'old-time' cameras when you actually had to wind the film?). Fuji puts their film in them. Kodak canisters probably will work (they are black with a grey lid) but the Fuji lids fit into the canister while the Kodak lids have a 'lip' outside of the canister. No muss, no fuss. For my 1 T of oil there was enough room in the canister to put water on top and slug it back like a shot glass.



Want more fun? Put about 2 T of water and a 1/4 to 1/2 Alka-Seltzer tablet in a Fuji film canister. Put the lid on and place it upside down.

You want to do this outside on a sidewalk...trust me.

I have to google that--don't have a clue what that is.

Mentos provide a surface for CO2 to gather--hang together. They have a rough surface, so there's a lot of surface area. The molecules move at the same time, which creates the reaction...from what I heard on the above link.

He mentions doing it as a kid with M&Ms--I've seen that, and he's right--it just gets fizzy. They are very smooth and smaller than the Mentos. So the theory sounds right.

In the Alka-Seltzer rockets, the Alka-Seltzer fizzes which gives off CO2. Since there's a limited space for the CO2 molecules to expand in the canister, when the space is full the extra molecules have to go somewhere. That force pushes the lid off and propells the canister up (equal and opposite reaction).

We found that using hot water creates a faster and more vigorous reaction, like the young lady in the NPR report.

Freaking awesome!

I use these 2-ounce bottles from the Container Store: http://www.containerstore.com/browse/Product.jhtml?CATID=74067&PRODID=69233. I fill it to the 50 ml line and that's my oil for the day. I just swig from it at the appropriate times.

One note on traveling and storage of canola oil. My first trip I used sugar water and will use this instead of canola oil after my experience on my second trip. I looked around for something to store my doses of canola oil and settled on this little Rubbermaid juice holder. All plastic, good seals and a folding straw to boot. So I put my canola oil doses in and put the whole thing in a double zip lock bag. All is still not leaking when I remove it form my carry on during my flight. I pop open the straw and then....it started gushing oil. I guess the pressure difference did it. The thing looked like a mini- oil derrick. Out came most of the canola oil. All over me, the floor, everything. What a mess. I'll bet the people cleaning the plane had some puzzled looks when they found my seat! So needless to say I will stick to sugar water on flights until I have another brilliant storage idea. he he!

I think sugar water on flights is gonna be the norm for quite a while thanks to some inconsiderate @$$holes who probably caused more chaos with the threat of what they planned to do than actually being able to carry it out.

Yep. My family's got a 31-hour flight around the world--4 planes and an overnight airport stay!!--to get back to Kentucky in September, with a 15-month old and a 4-year old, squeezed into those horrible economy seats. How in the hell are we going to manage it without drinks, toothpaste, etc? I can't even face the thought squarely. It was completely miserable before, already, without this horror. If it gets any worse, I swear I'm gonna start taking cruise ships instead to go back to see my folks.

Any tips, anyone? OT, I know, but I am panicked!
