If, like me, you are tired of your bottle of canola oil dripping down the sides of the bottle every time you pour out of it, just cut the ribbed cuff off of one of your husband's old stocking and slide it over the bottle. It will catch all the drips and keep your cupboard shelf clean. When it gets soiled, either launder it or replace it.

This video shows you the simple steps to making an oil bottle cover. With this cover you prevent the bottle from getting slippery when oil drips down the side of the bottle.

You can prevent oil stains on cabinet shelves by wrapping the oil bottle with a band of paper towel, secured with a rubber band. The band of paper towel will prevent drips from running down the sides of the bottle and can be tossed when dirty and replaced.
