How to Fill Lotion Squeeze Bottles？
Squeeze or pour your lotion into small plastic squeeze bottles, and fill them to the neck of the bottles. This will make your trip more convenient, or be used for storage.
However, do you know how to fill lotion into plastic squeeze bottles easily? Here we share 2 methods.
Use a Measuring Cup and Funnel
1.Lotion will be easier to pour after heating up, so use a spatula to scoop the lotion into a microwave-safe measuring cup. Choose a measuring cup with a spout that can help you easily pour the lotion into the new bottle.
2.Lotion will easily pour as reaching around 120 °F (49 °C). Therefore, put the measuring cup in a microwave and set the timer for 30 seconds. You can test the temperature with an instant read thermometer. Be careful, overheating the lotion will deactivate any preservatives.
3.If you want to add ingredients like essential oils or preservatives, once the lotion is warmed up, you can swirl a spoon around in the container so as to mix up your product. This distributes the heat through the lotion, so they will all mix evenly.
4.It’s easy to make a mess while pouring lotion into a different bottle. A funnel will help to guide the lotion into the bottle and avoiding spills. Therefore, you can hold a small or medium-sized funnel at the neck of the bottle as you pour in lotion.
5.If without a funnel, hold the measuring cup about 3–5 in (7.6–12.7 cm) above the bottle, and carefully pour the lotion directly inside. Keep your arm straight so you don’t spill any. Continue pouring until the lotion reaches the neck of the bottle.
6.Once you’ve filled the bottle to the neck, place the topper back on the bottle, and screw it into place. You can leave 1⁄4–1⁄2 in (0.64–1.27 cm) of space at the top so it’s easier to screw on the lid.
Fill with a Plastic Bag
1.Use a spatula to scoop up the lotion and spread it into a plastic Ziploc bag or pastry bag. Move the lotion towards the bottom of the bag with your fingers, and squeeze out any air from the bag. Then, seal up the top of the bag once you finish filling.
2.Use scissors to cut off the very tip of the bag. If using a Ziploc bag, cut either the left or right bottom corner. If using a pastry bag, cut the side at the skinny end. Hold your scissors at a 45-degree angle, and snip off 1⁄16 in (0.16 cm) to make a tiny pour spout.
3.Insert the tip of the bag into the neck of the bottle to fill them up. The first 1⁄4–1⁄2 in (0.64–1.27 cm) of the bag will easily fit inside the bottle. Then, gently apply pressure to your bag towards the tip to release the lotion.
4. As filling the bottle, you may notice some extra space on the sides. Take the bag out of the bottle, and gently tap your bottle on your table a few times. This can make you fill it as full as possible.
5.Replace your lid when you reach the neck of the bottle. When the lotion bottle is full, take the bag out of the bottle. Then, pick up the lid or dispenser, and screw it back on top.
If there is lotion left over in the bag, squeeze it back into your main container, or fill another bottle.
If the bottle has an applicator tube that goes inside, place this into the bottle first, then gradually lower the lid onto the top. Press down on the applicator a few times to release the lotion.
