Every family make preparations for the winter: jams, pickles, juices, syrups. It happens that they catch the hostess off guard: no cans, lids, not satisfied with the capacity. Some are trying to harness the imported plastic bottles of 1,5 — 2 l no Words, Tara is very convenient. If the contents of the bottle to add a preservative, juices, syrups, wines are stored for very long. But to sterilize such containers is very problematic.
However, the border still widely use glass bottles as a capacity of 0.5 l and 0.33 l (“Euro-bottle”), they sell juices, beer. Such bottles are relatively cheap, are available in all settlements and in sufficient quantity. A glass bottle can be stored in the standing and in the supine position (pyramid). It is also convenient to use her homemade contents: fresh juice is consumed immediately after opening the bottle, as its capacity is small (to store home canned foods in the open for a long time is not recommended).
However, commercially there is no stoppers for such bottles (Cranbrook). We offer to recycle that tube has already been used (even bent) — after appropriate sterilization. If you have not accumulated them over the winter, ask at your nearest kiosk or the cafeteria. To seal their bottles, we offer you to make a simple device. Its purpose is force to compress the neck of the bottle the corrugations on the kronprobkoy — the so-called “skirt”. This is done using a small bushing-swage, which is mounted on the lever. The sleeve is made from a section of water pipe with a diameter of 3/4 inch and a length of 60 — 80 mm. One end of it inside worn down and the internal diameter successfully match the dimensions of Kronprince. A swage used in 2 — 3 admission, turning the bottle around its axis. It so happens that the kronprobkoy gets in the swage and rises with it. To avoid this, you need a pusher to hold the tube. Pusher is a wooden cylinder, which easily enters the swage.
