This paint-thinner dispenser proves indispensable

Many laundry detergents come in handy plastic jugs with a dispenser that sit on a shelf. Push a button on the dispenser and out comes detergent. No spilling, no lifting the jug, no twisting off a cap. I recycled such a jug to dispense mineral spirits in my workshop. In eight years of use, the dispenser hasn’t leaked, and always delivers accurate, no-mess pours with little effort. These plastic jugs may not hold up to stronger solvents.
