    Very nice, sort of thing i would think about getting if i didnt have a mate in the ambulance service who "aquires" unused pee sample bottles for me.
    Pre sterilised and can hold liquids (fuel) powers (coffee, sugar).
    I dont understand your concern, we are in the woods with fire, an axe and a book to identify mushrooms ... what could possibly go wrong?

    Neat and timely
    ....but get thee to the poundland Four wee bottles, two wee screw top tubs, one pack = 1
    or if you want tiny ones for needles, matches, herbs, pills and so on, then this fellow comes recommended

    He also sells really good storage tubs too. I keep herbs and resins in them.

    While I mind though; does anyone have links to screwtop bottles with a sealable hose from the lid, that will safely take fuel ? Something about 50 to 100ml would do fine.

    cheers,

    What Toddy said, good seller and I've had this sort in various sizes

    Very handy for the 'kitchen' box

    Those are excellent tubs Richard I use them too

    I have some that are entirely metal for wax or vaselined tinder, the permanganate, etc., Same size, intended for the safe transportation of small bottles of chemicals.

    I got a few from some plastics company on ebay a few months ago. A couple of quid for 5 with flip lids - ideal for the 'kitchen'
