Putting them in the bottle allows too much air in with them, they'll still get stale. The bottle top in reusable.

plus, to get them in the bottle you would have to find your funnel.

The plastic bag is a lot like thread tape when you're installing a new shower head. Extra leakage protection!

Which could be made out of the SNANK bag by cutting a diagonal hole in one of the bottom corners.

Look at the spilled liquid on the rug. Kind of misses the point of a funnel.

Regarding the pic: that will come in very handy the next time you need to transfer water from a plastic bottle to, um, well...another plastic bottle.

[/thread drift] But I think you'll find that SG was using SNANK bags to protect her hand from cat poop .
Though, of course, a SNANK bag is probably the ideal funnel to use if you wish to store your cat poop in a bottle ...

No doy, Tim Moy...

Uh, expand your sense of humor.

It's still stupid. I'd like to see you replace your oil in your car with that flimsy piece of necessity as mother of bad and pointless invention. A rolled up piece of cardboard from that case of beer would do a better job.

But your cardboard won't fit in your pocket will it?
