Steve, while I'd agree with Ken that wrapping the bottle in foil (or other
opaque, like the black plastic bag from a box of photo film or paper) is
OK... I'd still advise against it for anything past the short term. I take
it those "translucent juice bottles" are plastic. Even photo plastic
doesn't keep solutions as well as glass, and this plastic would be much
thinner. Also -- are the covers plastic? That's OK, probably, but not
