Catch the drips that form down the sides of the olive oil bottle with this simple, inexpensive solution.
Center the bottom of the bottle on a square of paper towel. Bring the towel up around the sides of the bottle (like you were wrapping a wine bottle as a gift) The paper towel will only come up about halfway up the sides of a small olive oil bottle. Secure with a thick rubber band - I use the bands that come around broccoli for this.
Replace the towel and rubber band every few months, as the oil will eventually disintegrate the rubber in the rubber band.

Pouring from my olive oil bottle can cause drips to flow down the side of the bottle, making a mess. I solved this problem by setting the bottle on a folded square of paper towel, pulling the towel up around the sides of the bottle (as if you were wrapping a bottle of wine) and securing the paper towel around the bottle with a rubber band. The towel catches any drips that may occur. Change the towel every few months. Clean bottle and hands! :-)
I was using a vegetable brush to coat vegetables with olive oil, but soon realized I was using a lot of oil, so I went to a local dollar store and bought a gold tinted plastic bottle with a sprayer top and now i keep my Olive oil in a spray bottle and do not use near as much, and I spray my pans when I am going to sauté' my vegetable, I bought a tinted bottle because they say it preserves the oil better than a clear bottle.465
