question about the little soy sauce bottle

I have some of the little soy sauce bottles, which originally came with a little matching eye-dropper thing to help put the soy sauce in. But now its been over-used and the seam at the bottom split, so there isn't any more suction in the eyedropper. I've tried using the bottles themselves to suck in the soy sauce, but they only ever get about half-full, so I end up needing to take in two bottles.

I've also noticed that some bottle sets don't even come with an eye dropper. Is there a secret to filling these things that I just haven't figured out yet? :)

thanks!

I use the bottle to suck up the sauce, which gets it half full. Turn the bottle right side up, squeeze til the sauce is almost to the opening, turn over and suck up sauce again.. doesn't get it 100% full, but it's close enough for me :)

I have a kikkoman soy sauce bottle. I just put my thumb over one end and drip it into my bento bottle. Easy and pretty quick too.

if you have a heath food store near you, they sell those little droppers. Try and pick up a new one.
