so, someone accidentally broke the lid on my container of iodophor.. where i am, i would have to get a whole new bottle shipped at great expense and hassle.. can i store the iodophor in a new container? can i use an empty glass booze bottle with a metal lid? (think empty bottle of vodka) hopefully one of you with a scientific background (there seem to be many) can answer if the metal lid will be an issue or give a suggestion...

thanks

I am certainly not your man from the "scientific background", but I do remember running reaction experiments in chemistry back in the day. Iodine vs various metals = bad. granted we were using powdered metals that would exasperate the reactions, but I think I would stick with plastic. Dollar general is bound to have something that would work even if you have to buy a cheap bottle of shampoo and dump it.
