    A percussion massager. Yep.

    You know, those things you always see at Brookstone/Sharper Image and try out but never buy? Well, I have one (It was from Macy's, $40 I think).

    In addition to massaging my sore joints, it's the perfect e-liquid mixer! No need to stir things in a beaker and waste the residue. Just pump everything into a 30mL plastic bottle (probably won't work with glass), and let the massager do the work!

    There's a certain art to it... I hold the bottle by the cap... the outer cap is loose, but the inner seal is tight, so that literally allows for "wiggle room." with the right amount of pressure and the right angle of attack, you'll be all mixed up in about 60 seconds...

    [Cue the vibrator jokes]

    Really, it works if you happen to have one!

    I read somewhere that a lady put her juice bottle in a sock, tied the end, and ran it through the clothes dryer with her laundry to mix and steep at the same time. LOL!

    LOL love all these ideas... though I'd be afraid that bottle in the dryer would burst!

    Duct tape your bubble wrapped bottle to a jig saw or sawsall blade.
    Or buy a model paint agitator for around 50 bucks..

    For larger containers like liters of nic there are
    pneumatic agitators for between 90 and 100 dollars but you need a compressor

    Duct tape - and a front load washer.

    I don't recall the exact circumstances why, but I was doing laundry and had a bottle of liquid on top of the washer. When that thing hit high speed spin I couldn't help notice all these micro air bubbles rising through the liquid in the bottle. Screw those dedicated ultrasonic cleaner things!

    The duct tape to make sure the bottles don't go vibrating off the machine.

    Not worth the money. I had one of those model paint shakers, died in like 3 months.

    I use my sawsall as above when I want to shake stored juice
    but for DIY I use a magnetic mixer made out of salvaged computer fans and hard drive magnets.

    If you stick it in their little mouths and duct tape it shut
    you can shake and quick steep at the same time...and finally get some silence for a while

    Got an idea for another already have one solution, a washing machine, just put the bottles in there along with your clothes.

    My wife sells Passion Parties stuff. I'll just go rummaging around her tickle trunk for something that "vibrates".

    I saw a vid of someone using a sawzall, they had the bottle strapped to the blade with some zip ties. Might have been a bit too violent, that juice started getting all frothy. lmao.
