Love a product, but hate the packaging?

I love my shampoo and conditioner, but absolutely hate the bottles they come in!  You've gotta flip these little balls up to dispense the stuff,  and with wet hands it's pretty annoying.  Just a few minutes ago, I totally ripped my thumbnail, like away from the skin.  Ouch!  Not to mention the bottles have to be kept upside down with the cap on the bottom so I can't just leave it opened and stand it upright.

Is there something you love to use but hate the way it's packaged?

  • Pretty much any toy that has those zip ties, twisty ties, plastic sewn into hair. I agree with you about the shampoo.

  • My disposable razors are a pain in the butt! You have to slide the cap up instead of just taking it off. I'm sure its to make the razor more sanitary since I know i always lose the caps to mine...but those slide up caps are hard to move, especially when I've already lathered my legs up with shaving gel!!

  • Frontline for fleas and ticks. OMG it takes longer to get the stupid stuff out of the package than it does to put it on the dang dog.

  • Oh yeah, those awful ties they use to secure the hell out of a toy to the cardboard or plastic .  Agree, nothing worse than getting frustrated cuz you can't get Woody loose :)  Khung Zhu pets are really hard to get at also.

  • Yes, I know I can transfer shampoo and conditioner to a different bottle.  That wasn't the point of the question though.  Just asking if anyone loves something but hates the package, not asking what to do about it.

  •  I do think sometimes that plastic does indeed change the taste.  Now that is something you can't do anything about, unfortunately.
