How to open an excel bottle!

So here is how i open an excel bottle. Im not sure if anyone has the same problem as me, but if i do as the instructions, i never get my excel bottle open. So heres the way i do it. Just yank the cap up, and twist left and right till it comes off, simple! At least thats how i do it because turning that cap proves to be difficult

I used to have that problem with one of the caps of an excel bottle. Loud clicks and it would not come off. Only occurred in one of the bottles; perhaps a defective cap.

This is what happens when you leave AA open on your phone and a toddler grabs it.

Sorry for the off topic post!

I had that problem too. I ended up using some pliers and forcing it off.

Yep their caps really suck, I always ended up putting it into a well rinsed soda bottle.

Not an advisable course of action. Glut breaks down in light.

The opaque bottles that hydrogen peroxide comes in would work for this (Excel). Simple screw off lid.
