Thought for the day - squirt tops

I just put a load of laundry in and that spurred my thought of the day.

Why don't laundry detergent and fabric softener bottles have squirt tops? Maybe because they're so big and bulky it might be awkward to try to do a squirt bottle, but shouldn't there be a dispensing system different from the unscrew the lid, poor in cup, mix in with laundry, rinse out cup? I could imagine something like a dishwashing detergent bottle, or maybe a Heinz Ketchup bottle. You'd still need a little cup in the laundry room to fill the fabric softener holder, but it could work.

Just a thought for the innovators at Proctor and Gamble or other places. I'm guessing they've probably tried it at some point.
