    Exclamation Need help with vintage splash bottles

    How do I transfer from these to a spray atomiser? These splash bottles have very narrow openings, and it is not possible to simply pour into the atomiser. Use a pipette?

    Many thanks!

    The best way is to aspirate with a needle (and a syringe) and transfer to the atomiser. You will not lose a drop.

    Yes, use a pipette. I just did this today with a vintage bottle of Avon musk.

    Get a funnel and put a bent pin inside the vintage bottle and funnel, this releases the liquid faster - for quick transfer. U might want to try it out with rubbing alcohol first for practice...

    I use very thin pipettes for such bottles, and then place the used pipettes in drawers or cabinets to act as sachets.

    Pipettes would work really well. The tips are small enough to enter the narrowest of bottle necks. Here's an example:

    Thank you all so much!

    I forgot to update earlier - I've already placed orders for needles, syringes and pipettes.

    Will look out for funnels.

    Some of the narrow-stem pipettes I've ordered come with a small funnel, but I've never had to use it - the pipettes work great on their own.

    I use Syringes and blunt tip needles. They are very cheap and you can order a bunch.
