Keep my liquids in small square tub under the sink. Keep oil and vinegar in recycled pancake syrup bottles. They have pop up nozzles like dish detergent bottles have.
Another totally related use for one of these bottles is in the bathroom. We installed a shut off valve to toilet waterline under dinette settee to conserve water in holding tank.
Use the syrup bottle filled with water and a little toilet holding tank enzyme to do a "Manuel Swirlie" of the toilet.

You could put them in a ziplock bag or two. There are ziplocks in large sizes.

One hint is to squeeze all the air out of the bottle if it is plastic before capping. The vacuum formed both helps contain the liquid and let you know you got the cap on really tight. Works very well for liquids on air travel, too. We've never had a leaker, even if it falls over.
