I have some perfume in a glass bottle with a roller ball. I would like to transfer it to a spray atomizer but I can't seem to get that little ball out! Short of breaking the bottle I'm at a loss as to what to do.
I thought that some of you DIY wizards might know of a simple solution.......
Thanks Smile

Hi Ruth, to remove the ball if it is encased with the rubber/plastic holding the ball, I just insert something slender down the side to either remove the whole plastic casing with the ball or to just remove the ball on it's own.

It must be very slender and a little pointy in order to get down the side without damaging the bottle and breaking it, just use caution when doing this as not to injure yourself. Smile

Thanks! I'll give it a try right. It just seems as though the little ball is in there so tight, I wanted to ask first. I absolutely love the perfume (child) but want to spray instead of roll. I see that they have an offer for a spray version now but at the time of purchase it was roll-on only Neutral

Thanks for the post, i was just looking to do the same to my roll on perfume. I found it easier to remove the plastic cap with the ball than the ball itself. for the bottle that i have, there was no damage and i was able to use my fingernails.
