- Refilling Roll On Bottles
Refilling Roll On Bottles
Once you have used up the contents you originally placed in your roll on bottle, you can refill it fairly easily. There are two methods for opening the bottle again to refill it. The first method is illustrated in this picture showing the curved handle of scissors popping out the roller ball. After refilling, the ball can be popped back in place without any loss of function.
The second method is to remove the entire cap, not just the ball. This can be done following the steps below.
1.You will need to remove the plastic insert and the roller ball. With many bottles, this can be done by gently pushing the plastic insert up and out with your thumb.
2. If the insert is not budging, you can use a small flat screwdriver to loosen the insert. Wedge the end of the screwdriver at a downward angle toward the bottle. Then lift the insert upward applying gentle pressure the whole time.
3. As the insert loosens, the rim will become visible. Slip the screwdriver between the rim of the insert and the top of the bottle and twist gently to push the insert further up. Once the insert is dislodged somewhat, you can then push it completely out with your thumb.
4. Alternate method: You may also use small pliers to grasp the insert and loosen it by gently rocking it back and forth. Be sure to squeeze and rock very gently and place a cloth between the pliers and the plastic insert to prevent damage. This method is only recommended if other attempts have failed.
