Am I just using these laundry detergent bottles incorrectly?

Why are these push-button laundry detergent bottles so messy? Is there some secret to dealing with push-button nozzle laundry detergent bottles that I'm just missing?

Laundry detergent bottles like Tide or whatever have these push button dispense nozzle like a big gatorade sideline container. But it's crazy messy whenever I try to use it. The little cup has an outer lining of liquid detergent after you pour it in because it sticks to the sides. The little nozzle has a couple drips too. When you put the little cup back on the bottle, it will leak down all over the place if you leave it on its side or if you stand it back up unless you wash it out. When you go to wash out the little cup it makes loads of suds and is a pain.
This is supposed to be more convenient I imagine. Am I missing something?
