Filling tiny sauce bottles

The sauce bottles I bought didn't come with a dropper to fill them, but I went to the drug store and found a syringe that is normally used to dispense liquid medicine to children:

Basically this is a regular syringe with no hypodermic needle. It's marked with metric as well as imperial measurements. I found mine at CVS here in the States. It comes apart for cleaning too.

Works great!

Re: Filling tiny sauce bottles

I just squeeze my bottles then dunk the opening into some sauce and let them suck it up when I let go. That works well too.

Yup, that's what I do too. The squeezy thing that came with them broke pretty quickly.

I'm new in bentoing and today is the first time I'm using the tiny cute little bottle for the soy sauce. I did exactly like bronwyncarlisle said and it works perfectly fine :) if the sauce only get it little bit, by holding it up right (the mouth of the bottle facing up), squeeze the bottle again, and dunk it in the rest of the sauce, release the squeeze and the bottle filled fully with the sauce now :D
