    When you get to be a certain age, you discover that prune juice comes in low actinic (brown) PET bottles.

    It comes in brown bottles so you don't see the true color of that crap.

    And you can reuse the bottle for storing developer. Just make sure that you don't mix up the original and reused bottles. :D

    wow, every time I recommend using beer/medicine/drink bottles, whatever, all the nervous nellies come out and say what an a-hole I am for suggesting it because people are dumb dumbs and will drink the chemicals by mistake.

    There's nothing wrong with using drink/medicine/food bottles as long as they're properly labelled PERIOD. SEZ ME.

    Prune juice bottles are great. FYI... orange juice and vodka=screw driver; prune juice and vodka=pile driver.

    Did you hear about the whale that tried to mate with the USS Nautilus? It got atomic piles.

    As long as the bottles are labeled, and there are no small children that could get into them, I don't think there is an issue.

    Mott's apple sauce also comes in glass jars with wide mouths great for stirring in powered chemicals :smile:

    My favorite though is around here they have beer that's sold in the actual 1/2 gallon brown glass chemistry bottles, they cost $3 ($4 cheaper than buying them from photographers formulary / B&H) and you get 1/2 gallon of beer to go with it, hehe

    No children in my household. Maybe some day.
    When I was a child, my parents repeatedly told me to never drink something from under the sink, the basement, or utility room... and I listened. Actually, I'd never even considered it, and thought it was odd they'd even say that.
    I suppose I was conditioned to think that drinkable fluids came from only two places, the faucet or refrigerator. That little psychological bias was probably more powerful than anything else.

    If you are annoyed that people bring up that chemical safety side of discussion, why bring it up when no one was talking about it??

    I don't do it because I am the dummy who makes unbelievable mistakes sometimes. But that's just me.

    I am a social person and I have guests come to my place. I want their visits to be safe for them, unlike the antisocial grumps that sign

    Me too... If they are fishing around under my bathroom sink looking for a drink, I have to wonder... But, better the developer than the Drano.

    I suggest not socializing with people that don't grab bottles marked "danger photo chemicals" and open it and then drink it.

    if you're secure enough to hang out with smart people, then you don't have to watch out for their safety. Actually, everyone is responsible for their own safety when it comes down to it, it's not your look out but theirs.

    This is why the gene pool is become dilluted with morons--everybody's bending over backwards to keep the idiots alive and then the stupid genes stay in the gene pool...and they grow up to vote.

    Although plastic does tend to handle droppage better than glass, I have noticed.
