What do you use to store your oil and vinegar? One reader sent us this really pretty setup he created for almost nothing out of Perrier bottles, which turn out to be rather good-looking, once you peel off the labels. Here’s his rationale… 

This tip comes to us from a reader named Billy, who blogs at

Oil cruets are usually expensive and ugly so I decided to repurpose an old Perrier bottle to hold my olive oil a little more stylishly. I used a dispenser I already had, so it was all pretty much free. Even if you have to purchase a pourer it’s only going to cost a few bucks.

Great idea and execution, Billy! Thanks for sharing. We’re a big fan of repurposing old (and pretty) bottles as dish soap dispensers too. All you need is a plastic stopper or pourer, which can be found at groceries and hardware stores.
