I’m often as blown away by the simplest innovations as I am by the most complicated of technologies. And the ANYWAY spray bottle falls into that former category, with gusto. I know in the big picture the issue of spray bottles not working upside down or at odd angles really isn’t something worth complaining about, but deep down I’m quite happy someone has found a solution.
The problem with traditional spray bottles is that the dip tube only has a single hole at the bottom, so if the liquid levels are low and the bottom of the tube isn’t submerged, it ceases to function. But the ANYWAY spray dip tube has a hydrophilic membrane (which attracts liquids) with millions of tiny holes along its length, so as long as any part of the tube is touching the liquid in the bottle, it will work properly. The best part of this innovation is that it doesn’t require a complete redesign of spray bottles either, so it shouldn’t be that difficult to use the new tubes if a company decides to license the technology, and hopefully they all will!
