Finally! MIT scientist helps you get all the ketchup out of the bottle

Nothing like a side-by-side demo, is there?

I don’t know what you have in your shower, but I have those bottles of soap from Sephora.

You know the ones — they have different smells like raspberry sorbet, almond ice cream, and Keira Knightley.

I paraphrase, but not by all that much.

Anyway, it’s always hard to get the last bit of sorbet out of the bottle. You leave it upside down, hoping that the soap will all come out smoothly during the next shower. Then the plastic seems to crinkle a little too much. Then you squeeze and still there’s soap left over.

This has been going on ever since the days of glass bottles of ketchup and mayo. What this problem clearly needed was some large heads at MIT.

Thankfully, the egg-headers finally got onto it and created LiquiGlide. Initially, they focused on getting the ketchup out. Now Dave Smith, the clever man behind the idea, has left MIT and turned LiquiGlide into a company that will ease your frustrations more powerfully than Diazepam.

As Fast Company reports, he’s now perfected his lubricant to such a degree that he believes he can make it work for just about anything that gets put in a bottle, even glue.
