Remember when those ubiquitous hand cleanser bottles came out a few years ago?

My local Shopko ran a special on them once – 50 cents each.

When I got them home, I discovered why they were so cheap.  I couldn’t figure out how to get the $%@! things open!

TwistAndShoutNo matter how much I twisted and shouted, they would not budge.

The shape of the bottles have changed a bit, but the lids are still screwy.

Last night, I finally figured out the secret.  Drum roll please. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

SECRET:  do not let the second cap move.  Hold it tight while rotating the spout.
