Containers that don't leak in refrigerator

I'm asking this question for my wife. We can't seem to get containers that hold tea, Kool-Aid etc. that don't leak. The containers we currently use have a screwdown lid with pouring spout on top of the lid. If the spout is closed tightly the containers leak around the bottom of the lid. If we don't close the top spout tightly on the container it sloshes out the top but doesn't leak around the bottom of the lid. We like having the spout for ease of pouring going down the highway. Any suggestions for containers would be appreciated.

Changes in atmospheric pressure is forcing liquids out of your present containers. Best thing you can do IMO, and this comes from 17 years of full timing, is get rid of the container with the spout. I use the large fruit juice containers, lying on their short sides. I've found they never leak on me. Then I try to remember to put the soap dispensers with pumps into the sinks before I travel because I never know when the dawn liquid will be forced out.

Most of the other leaking items, I've tossed over the years and don't repurchase them so the only leakers I get these days are the soap dispensers. And those not every time when I remember to crack the thread on caps.

It seems that the best bottles to have use a cap with a foam style seal in the bottom of the cap. And use the small necks.

We don't use reusable containers in our RV fridge, but I would think the Tupperware juice containers would work. They seal really well.

This style.....they're the vintage type, we still use them at home, you can turn them upside down and they don't leak.
