    Mustard / Catchup Squeeze Bottles

    I have bought them before but can not seem to find any now. I have had my son go to Walmart ,Target and a few Dollar stores looking for the mustard / catchup squeeze bottles to lay down the glue for braid. I plan to braid in the morning. Can any one suggest some stores that you know carry these bottles? Thanks

    Just by a cheap bottle of store brand mustard (any store, I've used Food Lion) and dump it, but I'm surprised you couldn't find them at WalMart. If I recall, last time I bought them there, they weren't where I would have thought and had to ask.

    I assume you found the braid you needed?

    Thanks Roman, Yeah, I went ahead and bought the 500ft as we are going to build a 1/8 mile drag strip as soon as I get back to Virginia in August. That's a thought buying the mustard and dump it. I checked online and found that Party City says they have them for $1.49. Just isn't one close. I may bite the bullet. Haven't decided yet. Thanks for your tip.

    We had to rebraid the start of the drag strip.
    Unable to find the empty bottles last week either...I bought a sports water bottle with that pop up top. It worked perfect. It had Elmo's face on the side of it.

    Once (a long time ago) we used an Elmer's glue bottle..we tried. Couldn't get all the glue or all the water out.

    Good luck

    Thanks, don't want to fool with the expense and learning curve of the tape. I have been using contact cement for over 30 years...tried and true!

    Whatever bottle you use..remember the mouth needs to be wide for easy pour to fill it. I was afraid my bottle would quickly begin to break down but it didn't.

    No need to worry. It is as easy as falling off a log

    Try any Ace Hardware or TruValue type place and head to their BBQ section., maybe even a big box store. World Market has them, and many Kroger stores.

    Thanks Tom, My son got one at Walmart in the kitchen tools aisle, on the bottom shelf. I forgot the hardware stores carried them. I swear this will be the last track I ever braid...

    Any restaurant supply store will have a variety of shapes and sizes of squirt bottles.
