Cool little nasal drops bottle. Blue is always popular.

Here is a picture of the one I found three days prior to this post.

I have a goofy question... What do you use for your rubbing of the bottles’ information on the bottom? I’ve tried crayons and a couple other things and I can’t ever get it to work!

Colour pencils work for me.
I tape a plain zerox paper to the bottle and use a woodless graphite pencil. Rounded not pointed.. A wider tip is what helps to glide across the embossing. Lightly at first so as to feel where the lettering is. Once you have a light impression you can go over just the embossing. Practice makes perfect.

Same as CanadianBottles, colored pencils work great. I crack the pencil in half down the inner part so I can rub it the long way on the paper, instead of the tip.
