    Slipped down and left

    Please correct the sentences as below.

    1. I had been wet completely during rain as I didn't carry an umbrella.

    2. When I took a hair oil bottle from the shelf slipped down as it was not closed properly.(I also want to say that "total quantity of oil left from the bottle")

    When I took a hair oil bottle from the shelf slipped down and left out entire oil since it was not closed properly. Is it correct?

    1. I got completely soaked through when it rained because I didn't have an umbrella.

    See my suggested version of sentence #1 above. I'm not quite sure what you are trying to say with sentence #2. My best suggestion so far is "When I picked up the bottle of hair oil, it slipped out of my hands. When it fell, all the oil drained out of the bottle because the top wasn't on properly". Is that what you are trying to describe?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
