Decanting Tardis

Just bought 5 Lyra from my rep, in the metal tin. What's the best way to decant it, without it pouring all over the place??

get a cheap funnel www.cleanyourcar.co.uk and decant it into a aluminium bottle from www.ampulla.eu they have a link to their uk site and get a chemical resistant trigger spray for solvents with viton seals or canyon from cleanyourcar or www.elitecarcare.co.uk or www.polishedbliss.co.uk

Yes, deffo use a funnel otherwise you will spill a good amount of it, if pouring it into a spray bottle. It does get easier to pour the more you use from the tin
Aluminium bottle is not essential, I've had the same plastic Autosmart bottle for over 5 years with no issues, but a chemical resistant spray head is a must!

Also while pouring, turn it side on so the largest flat side is on the bottom, allows the air to get in rather than it gulping as it pours out and splashing everywhere

Thanks folks. I meant more getting it from the tin into the funnel, without spilling it. Should've been more specific! Wondered if there's a pump type attachment that'll fit? Even if they'd fitted a spout of any kind, would make a real difference.

Tip if from the side and it does not "glug" it will pour easily into a funnel

You can get a pump action dispenser that fits over the neck of the container. That's what I did.

If it's a real concern then you can pour in to a large jug with ease and then in to a funnel or bottle straight after. I do this for diluting products because it's easier to measure and doesn't make a mess.
