Spill free oil change

Today I figured out how to remove the oil filter without spilling any oil from the oil filter with the use of a 2 liter soda bottle, simply by slipping a 2 liter soda bottle cut in half (cap on) over the filter, I was able to remove the filter with out the mess. Had to share.
