Dear Costco and Crest, we ran out of this product and my husband brought home the 2 pack. Relief was seconds away, no bad breath for me…until I realized the plastic. WHY???? Do you not want your customers actually using your product?
Those of you who know me personally, or have been reading my blog for awhile, know I’m plastically challenged. Hey, don’t make fun…it’s a more common condition than you realize.
Looking at the connector **SIGH** Now how am I going to get that off…
I tried tugging slightly and no budge. I thought, oh, twist off both caps and then the plastic lifts right off the bottles easily. Nope. (which by the way, isn’t a bad idea Crest) However, with the current bottle design, all the product would be sloshed out of the containers. Caps back on…scratch my head…wiggled them a bit more and knocked over my son’s legos. OH, crap! Please don’t let any of the teeny-tiny pieces have broken off, my son will kill me! Whew, all intact, close call.
How ’bout we use the lego to ‘blast’ off the plastic?
Shoot the darn legos cost so much, they should be able to do something like that, right? I willed it to be, but the trooper just sat there.
Scissors were tried, nope…barely made an indentation, no cut.
Realization set in, they actually want you to tug that thing over the top. Those sharp looking inside edges are apparently supposed to stretch over the thickness of the bottle and ridges. With what machine? I don’t think the “rubber husband” will work on that. (you know, the item that helps women open jars) With much struggle, I was able to pop one side up over a time. So much work for just one bottle…CRAP…no wonder they are plastic bottles. People frickin’ throw ‘em across the room in frustration!
I had to put myself on a time-out…retreat to my blog. I’m off to tackle bottle number 2 now. Blasted Plastic! I do not like you, but you WILL NOT WIN. Where’s my battle gear? I better find GOLD inside…
