    My school's photo room stores our developer in big plastic jugs and our fix, stop, hypo clear, photoflow are stored in smaller jugs under the sinks. I'm not quite sure about the print chemicals though. I'm sure plastic jugs would work fine too.

    Brown plastic bottles under the sink in the downstairs half bath. One roll of TP makes it in there and I have a royal hissy. THAT'S MINE DOWN THERE!!!!!

    There are a few developers that will slowly etch glass. It isn't a problem - you just end up with etched glass. Otherwise either glass or plastic is usually OK, so long as the top doesn't corrode or the plastic puncture. I prefer clear bottles so that I can see any sediment or discolouration easily. I keep them in the dark.

    Best,
    Helen

    I use brown glass and keep them in the darkroom under the sink.

    I keep them well marked and use them only for the chemical marked on each bottle.
