Introduction: Quick Chemical Dispensing
Work Work Work —— Mess Mess Mess
Doesn’t have to always be that way! When we are working on projects, sometimes we know that a mess is inevitable. But what and how, can we help make it just a little easier?
Well HDPE press dispensing bottles. I use these bottles in my studio as a quick way to get just a little or a lot of cleaner etc. on my cotton ball, sponge, cloth and the list goes on. Purchased my first ones from a beauty supply for alcohol and acetone. But if they were going to be used for other liquids I needed to make sure the bottle would hold up.
So, the type of chemical you use will dictate if it can go in the bottle, how long and of course safety.

Step 1: What You Need!
Chemicals or liquid product
Appropriate Press Top Dispenser bottles
List of chemicals safe for the plastic bottle you need to buy or use.
Gloves, goggles and a safe place to work.
You can find lists for Chemical Resistance Information for Bottles, Containers & Safety Cans on the Internet or follow the link.
We use alcohol, acetone, baby oil, silicone oil, mineral spirits, vinegar and so on.
Step 2: Easy As It Gets
Now that you have the appropriate dispensers, you will want to label properly and it helps to use a permanent marker and then cover with clear tape to protect.
Or print labels.
I only store for a week. If I know that it’s going to be a longer time before using, just pour back into original container. It won’t be contaminated because it only dispenses a little with every pump.
I have had no problem with evaporation but it will depend on your bottle.
The great thing about this is you open the flip cap before starting your project, then when you need the chemical you just press down with the cotton, cloth etc.
Quick clean no squirting or pouring and making a huge mess or worse ruining your project.
Hope this help! The Juliart
