I did the same. You are probably screwing the cap on too tight. That was my problem.

Transfer it to a plastic bottle/dropper. You can probably find one of suitable size at a pharmacy.

I recently had two of them do this. It's my favorite stuff but I'm looking for other options now. An $8 bottle of slide lube shouldn't freaking break on me. I'm not screwing it on too tight, it's too weak to work as it was designed. I still don't know why they changed the previous bottle design.

I use UltraPure, but what I do can work for you too.  I save every small dropper bottle I get.  Eyedrops, small meds, etc.  Rinse out the bottles and put UltraPure in each.  This way I can have a little bottle in each horn bag.  You don't use that much so even a 1/4 bottle size lasts a long time.

Good suggestion. Also minimizes the loss if the lube gets hot and breaks down.

If you can't wait until you get an ear infection, you can always just buy them for the price of bubble gum.

THESE ones for slide lube.

And THESE are great for valve and linkage oil.

Never look at the conductor. You just encourage them.

Have you noticed, some folk never stick around to help tidy up after practice?
