Default StarSan bottle

Looking for a spray bottle to keep my starsan in. Should I run to my local janitor supply place? or could I rinse out and reuse a windex bottle or similar? wondering if I would have some adverse reaction doing that. If I need to buy a bottle, does it need to be any special material?

Lowes and Depot have them in stock in their cleaning/janitor isle. Walmart is seasonal on empty spray bottles. I go to lowes cause it is closer.

If you can get by with a smaller bottle, go to the section in WalMart, Target, etc where they sell travel size tubes of toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo. Lots of 8 ounce spray bottles in a variety of colors . Or just re-purpose your empty windex bottle, rinse it out, fill with star-san. Spray a couple of pumps to purge the windex.

I just picked up two at Wally World this morning. They are 32oz bottles, and cost 97 cents each (which is probably cheaper than the small travel ones). I found them in the aisle with cleaning goods and laundry detergents. I needed one for star-san as well, and figured a spare couldn't hurt.

I've had unending problems with spraybottles giving up the ghost after a few refills.. water, etc.

However, I've never had a problem with THIS. They are also available at HD.

A few pumps and all you do is pull the trigger..

I have a couple garden sprayers here at work that have a hose and wand... I suppose they could work too... They are just waiting to be "acquired" for at home use!

Almost anything can work. I'm using my second spray bottle. Loved my first one but it broke. (Neck snapped off...) My wife got one that doesn't fit my hand real well, but it has been working right along. I'm sure a rinsed out windex bottle would be just fine.
