    For C-41 developer, my favorite right now is Martinelli's apple juice bottles:

    http://www.martinellis.com/store/products/siaj10b.shtml

    These bottles are 300ml and made out of rather thick airtight plastic. I make 1 or 2 liters of developer and split it into these bottles and use them one at a time for one or two shot development. The developer keeps very well in these. I just opened a bottle that I mixed 2 months ago and it's in perfect condition. The only trouble is, every time I open developer now, I want to drink it -- the juice tasted soooo good ;-)

    I like the shape of the bottle, no neck and thick. Is it clear plastic?

    The drinks can be over $2.50 a pop, which is absolutely ridiculous. I get five or six of them them when they are on sale for 98 cents each at Vons.

    Ummm....guys, it is not generally a good idea to put non-potable stuff into beverage bottles, particularly if the original appearance of the bottle is not drastically altered. Kids, in particular, are apt to take a swig on the assumption that it if weren't soda pop, it wouldn't be in a soda pop bottle.

    Putting automotive antifreeze (ethylene glycol-based) into two-liter soda bottles is one of the more egregious offenses, since the stuff not only looks sort of citrus-y, it actually tastes sweet and it doesn't take much to kill a youngster.

    I can imagine someone mistaking slightly oxidized developer for an herbal tea, and in some cases the taste might actually be better

    My 70 year-old father-in-law is an intrepid outdoorsman. He uses an old anti-freeze bottle as a water bottle. He enjoys the expression on his climbing partners faces when he takes a swig out of it.

    My father used to store insecticide in soda bottles, until I pointed out how dangerous it could be to his grandchildren. He stopped doing it immediately and I now have a grandchild of my own to worry about.

    But then, some people don't have kids......any more........

    Ah, yes---the old-fashioned alcohol-based antifreeze. Didn't know you could still get that without paying excise tax on it!
