PETE pharmacy bottle for alcohol fuel? on 03/22/2013 22:47:06 MDT Print View

I have a dim recollection of something like this being mentioned ages ago, but I ran across a couple of these PETE plastic pharmacy bottle and thought I would share it. It is graduated to 400ml/14oz and like like it will go to 500ml. It weighs 1.6oz. I like the color and the childproof cap. I'll add a couple Mr. Yuck stickers and a label too.

I've been using one for alcohol (Heet) fuel and have had no problem with leaks, etc.

Best part, it was free. I just asked at the Target Pharmacy if I could have an unlabeled bottle and they gave it to me.

"Best part, it was free."

I had to pay $0.50 for this one :)

I asked nicely and my phamacy gave me one as well. Good bottles. I have a nalgene cap on mine that fits perfectly and no leaks.

I have used these but had a cap leak.

Where do you get the cap, Ken, and which cap?

Thanks!

The cap came from a 4oz squeeze bottle I had laying around. It is a common size for a lot of the small Nalgene bottles.
