How to Remove the Spray Top From Old Perfume Bottles

#1. Place one hand on the plastic spray nozzle on top of the perfume bottle. Place the other hand on the perfume bottle itself.


#2. Pull straight up with your hand to remove the nozzle from the perfume bottle.


#3.Use a pair of scissors to cut away any plastic encasement surrounding the neck of the perfume bottle. A pocket knife can be used if the scissors are difficult to maneuver.


#4. Use the tip of the pocket knife, or scissors, to carefully pry off the metal section adjoined to the neck of the perfume bottle. Insert the tip of the blade under one section of the metal and gently pry upward. Repeat the process around the entire neck of the perfume bottle. Do not try to lift the knife too much as this will break the bottle.


#5. Use pliers to grasp the metal piece and gently pull up and away from the perfume bottle. Do this carefully to avoid breaking the glass bottle as well as spilling the perfume.


Refilling spray top perfume bottles is not recommended as they may leak.
