    @Cathy Murphy my shaker bottle was originally a vinegar bottle. I think it was white wine vinegar. Salad dressings also come in shaker bottles. Hope you find one!

    Or buy a Venus fly trap! For ants, sprinkle cayenne pepper and brush into the cracks and crevices. Then don't get all neat on me and vacuum it up--just leave it there in the corners.
