    Default Can I Reuse Sample Bottles?

    Heya everyone!
    So after picking up my new frag the other day, I found that it came with some free "mini" atomizer for travel (basically 1.5ml samples). I was wondering, once I used up the juice inside these samples, can I reuse them?
    Basically, will I be able to just pop the cap off and refill them? I know of people purchasing atomizers to decant, but what about the sample ones? are these reusable (ie, cap is removable)

    Thanks in advance!

    If you can remove the cap and snap or screw it back on, then of course you can.

    Reusable for the same fragrance, yes. Using a different fragrance once you have emptied the sample bottle, I wouldn't.

    I do all the time. I wash them out, spritz water through the "works" let them dry. I sometimes even refill them with at different scent without washing them, I have discovered some wonderful "layering frags" by doing that!!!

    my understanding is that it is fine to refill with another fragrance after rinsing the atomizer with alcohol. water might be fine also, but i probably wouldn't--

    Yes, of course you can do it. I have done this many times. You just have to wash and rinse carefully.


    But now I've just bought 500 plastic vials of 2ml, which will last me a lifetime of sharing samples. It cost me just 1o dollars plus shipping. A real bargain.

    I have tried to rinse out small glass bottles with acetone, ethyl alcohol and detergent but it doesn't really make much of a difference. The plastic siphon always takes up fragrance, too. I use plastic 5ml bottles for travel, labelled with whatever scent I'm taking and use that for the whole bottle's lifetime. Then it gets recycled. The Travalo type I have used only for Knize Ten - rinsing them out is a pain (although it is possible). I will probably give the atomiser away with the last of the Knize when I'm finished.
