Re-packing Solutions for SunScreen etc…
Jul 17, 2021 at 5:47 pm #3722212Mark JBPL Member
Looking for any suggestions on how to re-package sunscreen and other liquids (soap etc..) into smaller and lighter containers, be it squeeze bottles or tubes, or as someone once suggested, using portions of plastic straws (not sure HOW you’d fill one up with sun screen). Just looking to ditch heavy plastic containers of more material than I’d need for a 6 day trip.Jul 17, 2021 at 7:44 pm #3722223matthew kModerator
I have been happy with the repackaging supplies I have purchased at Litesmith.Jul 17, 2021 at 7:45 pm #3722224matthew kModerator
Their micro-funnels are handy for getting liquids and granular stuff into tiny bottles. I don’t know if they’d work with sunscreen.Jul 17, 2021 at 7:59 pm #3722226Mark JBPL Member

Do a search for “refillable tubes”. You can get tubes of all sizes and use syringes to refill. Finally I can have 20 ml containers of sunscreen and mosquito repellant. Liquids however want the tighter screwtops like on the Litesmith site.
BTW I am the only one who does not care for those sunscreen sticks?Jul 17, 2021 at 9:51 pm #3722233Adrian GriffinBPL Member
Dutch has 3ml and 10ml eyedropper bottles and a tiny funnel to fill them with. I use them for sunscreen, citronella and hand san. Dutchwaregear.com
