After delaying for years too long, I finally did some research and purchased new pump dispensers for two chemicals that sit on the table at my nail station – pure acetone and isopropyl rubbing alcohol.
I chose these because they’re intended for use with chemicals, which means the plastic will be chemical-resistant. And they come with a label. As I mention in my YouTube video about these bottles, it’s required that flammable chemicals be labeled and stored properly. Here’s a quote from my state’s regulations, the Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation, Board for Barbers and Cosmetology, Standards of Practice, 18 VAC 41-20-270. Sanitation and Safety Standards for Shops, Salons, and Schools:
“E. Chemical storage and emergency information.
3. Flammable chemicals shall be labeled and stored in a nonflammable storage cabinet or a properly ventilated room…”
These bottles were just a few dollars each. I’ll add a link below to the bottles that I bought, but they do come in various other colors so you can probably find something to match your salon’s decor.
Most importantly, these bottles work consistently. The old bottle I had didn’t actually pump out any liquid half the time, and other times it sprayed it up into the air and made a mess.
