Bottles of olive oil often have special caps that help prevent drips/etc. when pouring the oil, but an entire bottle of olive oil is far to heavy to carry for a hike. What's the best method for carrying olive oil to avoid getting oil all over the container and everything else after a few uses?
To expand upon this: The problem with putting the oil is just any old container is that the oil tends to cling and drip or run down the sides. Over time you end up with a very oily/sticky container. Olive oil comes in containers with special caps to prevent this but a standard container can weigh pounds. Pounds matter a lot to lightweight hikers who are counting ounces.
