I like things clean and neat, so it bothers me when I can’t cleanly remove the plastic wrapper over the top of a Soylent bottle.
Fortunately, I figured out that using something with a hard edge (e.g. key, pen, knife, etc) to first break the perforations around entire circumference of the top, results in a perfectly clean edge once you pull down the tab created by the vertical perforations.
Nutty? Sure. Clean? Definitely!
