    I did what some of the others did -- go down to the local beer store and buy some one liter bottles of beer (brown or green) that have self-sealing flip tops. It's a two-for-one deal. Another plus (besides the obvious) is that you can always go down to get another one if you find you need more, and you don't have to pay for shipping.

    See, that would work for most people...but what I want to use it for wouldn't really work. I'm wanting the smaller ones with the narrow mouth for both my sensitizing solution and storing Rodinal and HC-110 for use with syringes. I can get a few of the baby medicine topper plastic thingies for use with syringes if I can find the bottles.

    And we all know that Rodinal in a well-capped, air-tight glass bottle will last a very, very long time.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    Can't tell where you are located. I use mt 2 liter soda bottles and they work great. The caps seal over & over, again & again. The plastic doesn't interfere with the chemicals.

    Try them & see if they work for you.

    Can't beat the cost!

    If you are in the USA and there is a Trader Joe's near you, buy a couple of bottles of cold pressed flax oil for use in your morning oatmeal (with honey). They come in dark amber glass bottles which you can re-use for your chemicals. The anti-oxidants in the flax oil will counteract any carcinogens you expose yourself to in the darkroom.

    I guess you are all missing the point of my post.

    Amber glass bottles are NOT NEEDED. A darkroom is sufficiently dark to keep your developers safe in ordinary glass or heavy plastic. So, why waste money?

    The big problem is AIR. Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide are your enemies.

    Exactly. I think you're paying too much attention to the 'amber' part of it - and not to the 'glass' part of it. Clear glass would work just as well, I'm sure. I think my experiences with plastic has been with 'too cheap, too thin' stuff.

    My darkroom doubles as a laundry room. On an ordinary day, the room gets lots of light from a window. In my case, the brown bottles preserve my chemicals.

    I understand your point, not everyone stores their chemistry in the dark section of their darkroom.

    And , then some like the look of all those "old looking" bottles hanging around.
