I'm getting a really weird picture here.

Can you 'splain me?

Probably putting the tube over the bottom bottles neck and then sticking the top bottle neck down into the tube so the top bottle will line up and drain easier.

My guess is slipping the tube over the bottom bottle or jar and then setting another small bottle or jar on top of the first, so you can double stack them. Like two small bottles of tobasco, or chili pastes, which I just happen to have taking up a lot of shelf space. You reduce their footprint. That's just a guess though, as I've never heard of it before.

Oh, I was thinking something like storing in the fridge and couldn't make it work in my mind.

Thanks, makes sense now.

We will have to wait and see the answer but as she was talking about combining 3 bottles into one I think it's for draining the bottles with the least fuss and muss. BUT I can be wrong.

**ding ding ding** MsM is right and did a better job of explaining than I did.

The tube also prevents the top bottle from falling over. Works great.

I have never tried that but will in the future. I see commercials for a brand of TP that now doesn't have a tube at all. What will you do when they all convert? LOL Cut down paper towel tubes I guess??!!

Good guess MsM!

I do that tube trick for bottles of salad dressing, no matter the flavors. In fact, when they are half empty, I like the combo of Ranch and Blue Cheese dressing mixed together, better than either of them alone. Saves shelf room too.
