Spray Bottle Chemical Concerns

Post by Jamison » Sun Dec 08, 2019 8:19 pm

I got a garden spray bottle to mist the tank and house plants, but it it smells strongly of chemicals. Is that safe to use?

Is the bottle new or was it used previously? I would let it soak in water overnight, then spray half a the container through it and see if it still smells.

It’s new. I looked at some reviews and they said not to use it on animals because of BPA
