Pour a 2-liter with less mess

It seems like there are more ways to spill a 2-liter bottle of soda than there are to actually pour one. The Pour Thing provides an easy solution for tipping over a 2-liter without winding up with a sticky floor.

The Pour Thing cradles your precious 2-liter and keeps it safe from your thirsty little one. Solutions

Once upon a time, I worked with elementary school children. For special events, we'd have snacks and soda out of giant 2-liter bottles (they're so much cheaper than cans). Invariably, one of the children would try to pour a glass of the fizzy stuff and wind up with soda all over the floor. I got in the habit of grabbing a couple of rolls of paper towels before these parties, but I think there might be a better solution.

The 2-Liter Pour Thing is a stand that you can put any 2-liter bottle in, with a grooved top bar that holds the bottle steady. Just touch it, and you can pour yourself a glass of soda without struggling with a heavy bottle. This little gizmo is perfect for anyone with a child who wants to help pour. No longer will you have to worry that the bottle will be dropped because it's too heavy or awkward for a small child's hands. Even better, you won't have sticky bottles or tabletops.

If you want to store the Pour Thing and your preferred beverage in your fridge, you can. The base is 4-inches wide by 4-inches long, so it won't take up your entire fridge. The Pour Thing costs $19.95.
