Are you having trouble opening the pump for the newest product you bought? Well I have a quick fix for you. Normally you would put your finger on this part of the pimp and twist it open, but sometimes they can get really tough to open.  Take the pump out of the bottle, rinse off the shaft and dry it. Then you're going to firmly grip the shaft just under the collar of the pump and firmly twist to the right. That will pop the pump open, put the pump back in the bottle and you're ready to use your new product. I hope that helps!

  • Thank you for saving my sanity!!! FYI for anyone having a tough time holding onto the shaft…I used a silicon pot holder and it held super tight.

  • Well, that saved me about 10 “Our Father”’s and 10 “Hail Mary”’s! Thank you. I seem to always have trouble with Alba Botanical pumps. Do these companies do any user testing? Thanks again.

  • Thank you, thank you, thank you!
    I can’t tell you how many times a pump bottle became a pour bottle due to a stubborn pump-frustrating!
    I tried your method and had instant success with two bottles of newly purchased products. I am sooo grateful that you posted this tip.
