    I bought from Specialty Bottle. Get 2 caps per bottle as the caps break on occasion. The bottles are more durable. Their caps as all others are plastic, but they are cheap. As some else said, get the cone type seal caps and clean the INSIDE lip before tightening.

    If it was a milk jug, yes I had that happen to me about 8 years ago. I switched to 1 gal Gatorade & apple juce heavy plastic jugs with no problems

    I also use Delta 1 gal brown plastic jugs that work well.

    It was an orange juice jug. It must have "bio-degraded" sitting under the counter. Never had that happen before.

    So many chemicals now days are readily available in gallon (4L) quantities and cheap that I know they will expire long before I use them up so I save my good (and smaller) containers for the expensive or critical chemicals. The volumous and inexpensive chemicals are relegated to whatever comes out of the kitchen destined for the recycle bin.

    I'm still surprised it reacted with the floor tile!

    I said that. Glass Boston Rounds, clear or amber, can
    be found on eBay. Boston Rounds have been the standard
    container of photographic chemistry for generations. They
    are N.O.T expensive. They are the conservative choice.

    Those cork within a screw-cap go by the brand
    names Polyseal and Polycone. Do a Google search; the
    bottles will follow the caps. I'm still lamenting the loss of
    Tri Ess Sciences, they had such a nice selection and
    of caps as well. Dan
