    There is a trick so you can refill the "flip top" type but cant find one for this. It appears impossible to remove the stopper.
    Any enterprising CCrs out there ?
    BTW I like pickled onion vinegar on my chips...... so wish to bottle it.

    Pick the plastic stopper out of the bottle with a sharp knife or other such implement. It does come out.

    Does it really?
    I have tried without success. The stopper is virtually flush.

    Depends on the size of the syringe and needle I suppose

    Get the pointy ending between the stopper and the bottle and lever it out. 1544177261995-640218119.jpg
     
  8. If you can't slide a knife under the edge to prise it out I suppose you could screw a screw into the hole and give it a yank with pair of pliers.

    That sounds like a "getout" to me. If you come up with a suggestion you should at least give scientific data and specific details.

    It might help to stand the top of the bottle in hot water for a few minutes to make the stopper a little more pliable.

    Slip a small screwdriver blade in between the cork and the bottle and inject some WD40 into the gap :smile:.
