That's a neat trick.

As I was reading along I thought you were going to say that after you use an 8 ounce bottle the first week, you keep rolling so that you use a 1 liter bottle the next week and a half gallon the week after.

I don't know about you but the first quart lasts me a while... then the next three quarts seem to vaporize. (Because once I get going - I keep moving).
