Dear Trisha, can use any Rubbermaid,Tupperware, or Nalgene product
but that takes away all the fun <grin>.   However, be careful, all plastic
containers are NOT resistant to methacrylates and will melt.  And, in
addition, even the Rubbermaid, etc. containers will distort if no venting
is allowed during the polymerization as lots of heat is generated during
this process.
	I hope the individual is covering the glass bottle with a towel -
for obvious safety reasons.  Once the bottle is covered, pick up hammer and
remove all your histology frustrations by "pounding the  glass".
	Try it - you'll like it:-)
