Pour lids? No... I have tried everywhere including online and restaurant supply stores (those that require membership and those that do not.) Nope, they are doing some sort of higgedy-pokedy to keep you from being green and reusing a glass bottle. It has me really pissed off.<br><br>
I had to resort to using wine bottle corks and giving up on the pour lids.

Yep pour lids. I think a found a couple sites! I didn't have the right name ( oil lid thingy didn't work on google <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy"> )<br><br>
Now to get my butt to order them or go buy them. I want to recycle bottles for Christmas but may have to buy some in the end. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

Oh and I'm using them to make pretty soap dispensers for dish washing <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I love mine that someone gave me and thought it would be a great gist for others.

I have a beautiful cobalt blue nicely shaped glass bottle that I use for my dishwashing liquid. It was once a fancy water bottle (screw-top lid) that someone else was drinking (acquaintance) and I asked if they were going to keep the bottle. Um, yeah, I got the two-headed look. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Anyway, I have gotten several different types of pour spouts for it over the years. I've had this bottle for 9+ years now. The plastic types (Walmart) don't last all that long, but are really cheap. I also got some at The Container Store and Bed Bath and Beyond. Right now I am using a fake silver one with a rubber insert. The rubber insert lasts sooooo much longer than the plastic ones. I don't recall exactly where I got this one, but it was a bit pricier and it is cheap-looking because the top part you see is kind of cheesy looking. However, what counts for performance is the part you don't see...the part that goes inside the bottle opening.

liquor stores sell the speed-pour thingers--that's the type I've used for the bigger mouthed bottles.
