    Not a question but I agree, Coffee Mate containers are my new favorite storage container! Only I have a little problem getting them since no one I know uses it & I'm the only one in my household that uses it.  I like to buy the warehouse size of dishwasher detergent but don't really have the storage space for that big bottle so use the large Coffee Mate container :))

      I use the big economy size to store sugar. Each one holds 4 lbs easily. These aren't clear, so storing anything else you'd have to label.

    All I can find are the white/cream color. Where do you find the clear ones?

      I get the Amaretto amaretto International Delight creamer, and it’s Not clear. But I did get the coffee mate one time, when my brand wasn’t in, and it was clear for a coffee mate.

    What do you use to get the creamer smell out?

      Hi Carolyn, I use a bottle brush and some regular dish soap. Works perfectly. Thanx for asking!
