Siphon. Fill a tube with the liquid, put one bottle higher than the other,
tube in each.

Think of Old Spice Aftershave bottles; they have very small mouths.
Some grocery/department stores will have sets of very small funnels in their kitchenware departments. If the liquid is fairly thin, you can siphon with aquarium tubing. If the bottles are not too deep or oddly shaped a basting syringe would be an option.

How can I transfer liquids between two narrow-mouthed bottles?
Solved! (I found a plastic squeeze bottle. I poured the liquid from one Old Spice Aftershave bottle into the squeeze bottle. I then transferred the liquid from the squeeze bottle to the other Old Spice Aftershave bottle).

Sounds good. In the future, the old chemist's trick is to put a rod of some
sort into the receiving vessel, and pour from the source vessel onto the rod.
The liquid will tend to cling to the rod and will go right into the
narrow-mouthed receptacle. In your case, the rod can be as simple as a
drinking straw.

Good thinking, Stormon Mormin!

Drink the liquid in bottle "A". Urinate into bottle "B".
If your dick is as small as your brain, it should fit right into the
narrow-mouthed bottle.

If the bottle mouths are small and the same size, you could put your
thumb over the op of the full one while turning it over and setting it
on top of the other bottle. If the liquid is thick and slow, you might
want some support for the bottle that's on top.
it won't work very well unless you poke a hole in the top of the bottle on top

Sometimes I do the same with pouring water in my car battery using a
old mustard squeeze bottle. Works well.

Had a transmission fluid leak on the old TransSport that required
adding about a pint of ATF a day while on a trip. Miserable thing to
get to the trans filler/dipstick with an oil container so I grabbed a
sport drink bottle out of the reash (one with a push/pull "nipple" to
drink out of) and filled it with ATF. Tip the "nipple" into the filler
tube, pull the cap open, and squeeze. No more pouring fluid all over
the engine compartment (at least from the top)

I got a better idea...throw both bottles in the garbage.

In my opinion, Old Spice smells like the ass end of a menstruating
skunk.
I can't wait till one comes by to check that out.

Think of teeny funnels. They make them.

Other than that, maybe a hypodermic syringe and cut off needle. Or very
small tubing. You can actually get free syringes at the pharmacist if you
don't look too bad. Might even talk them out of a "butterfly" minus the
needle, which is a tiny tube that fits onto the syringe.

And it probably has a lot to do with the liquid. You can be sloppy with
paint thinner. You can't be sloppy with acid.

Yes. Now, how to get it started?


Next, what if the stuff is poison or lye or the like?


Serious questions -- I'd like to know in case I have to
some day.

Get a siphon hose
Long hose with a bulb at one end that does the sucking
Target container needs to be lower than the source

If the tube is filled with the liquid, and one end is lower than the
other, that will start the siphoning.
I wouldn't siphon lye or poisonous liquids, but you can do it using
caution.
Take some clear aquarium tubing and try it with water to understand
how it works.
You need a tube more than 2 times longer than the depth of the
container you're siphoning from.

All of this is almost as bad as the guy who uses his cellphone and types
in a text message to contact his buddy, who is sitting at the other end
of the bar.


Just use frikkin funnel, for crying out loud. Why does everything have
to be high tech these days??? I swear, we live in a generation of
idiots.....
