Allow up to 2 weeks for delivery. We manufacture several hundred plastic bottles bottles per month but only a handful of glass bottles, so you might have to wait for our next production-run.
PLASTIC BOTTLES v. GLASS BOTTLES
Glass bottles. PROS: has a very fine applicator, good for applying really tiny spots of acid. CONS: when opened they tend to 'fume'. If knocked over, all the acid will spill, causing great damage or injury. If dropped the glass can smash. If over-heated (e.g. in the car in a heatwave) a bottle can explode.
Plastic bottles. PROS: altogether, much safer than glass bottles (e.g. if knocked over, it can only spill one single drop). CONS: dispenses drops of one size, you can't apply really tiny spots.
