Step 1: Duct Tape Cork

Nowadays the corks are not made out of cork any more. They are made of plastic. And a plastic cork can't be put back in the bottle neck.

Step 2: Duct Tape Cork

Put a small piece of duct tape on the bottle neck.

Step 3: Duct Tape Cork

Cover the neck around with duct tape; make it in the form of a tube.

Step 4: Duct Tape Cork

With two fingers flatten the duct tape tape tube so it is sealed.

    Those rubber corks will fit back in the bottle for temporary storage if you clean them and re-insert them upside down.

    I agree. You just need to flip the cork over the other way.

    I used to do this with the "cork" corks. But I found a plastic one that didn't fit either way. Maybe it is a different type of plastic.
