    I discovered that restorer is much stronger stuff than airbrush cleaner. Don't put it in a plastic cup - see picture.
    This is weird because the bottle where it comes in is plastic too and don't bend or melt.

    You can use the small glass jars (normally used for siphon feed airbrushes) but I use these plastic condiment tubs - I’ve been using the same tub for the last 6 years . You normally only soak the head and mini bits so you don’t need anything larger. Because they have a lid you can’t loose anything if the tub gets knocked over, and keep it capped after you’ve removed your bits so it’s ready for next time

    it needs to be solvent proof plastic. If Acetone (nail polish remover - not the herbal kind) doesn’t eat the plastic then you’ll be fine

    don't throw it out after you've used it, its reusable which makes it extremely economical

    I've been using the same bottle for years.
    If there is too much junk in it I throw it through a paper coffee filter.
    Or let it settle and pour it into another glass jar and leave the bottom part with the mess.
    Not that it matters, but I don't like to throw parts
    in when there's all kinds of stuff floating around in it.
