Quick efficiency tip i just picked up. If youre looking to save as much money as possible, and youre a bottler, this may help a bit. I open almost all my bottles with lighters, don't know why, it's just a habit now. I realized that when I used a lighter, the cap came off without any bends, it looked perfect. So I took an empty bottle filled it with water and capped her with one of the lighter caps. Works like a charm no leaking whatsoever. Maybe this can help some of us with tight pockets. I know it's very cheap, but for me, part of the fun is getting my cost per bottle to a minimum.
