      This question comes through email from Jarrah:

      I bought a set of resin and hardner in one gallon jugs. Could I put them in smaller containers to make pouring easier?

      Hi Jarrah,

      Yes, you can do that with a few suggestions:

      1. Do not reuse containers for resin. Get new containers that are designed to hold chemicals. i.e. don’t use plastic milk jugs, soda bottles, etc.
      2. Make sure the plastic is inert.
      3. Contact the manufacturer to see if they have any specific recommendations on what types of containers to use.

      Reply from Jarrah,

      So would using a condiment bottle be not advised? It’s a thicker plastic but doesn’t say inert on it another

      Personally, I would not. I don’t usually think of food as being ‘dangerous’ or ‘caustic’ so right or wrong, I would want something designed for industrial purposes. A google search for laboratory plastic containers would likely find you something.
