    Going on my 2nd plastic jug, over time it leeks or should i say weeps out , first time ruined all my supplies in the tot. OK so i figured bad jug, put in a new one then put that in a 2gal zip lock bag, now same problem. Is this common?
    Appears to be going through the seam in the jugs.

    Thanks, Billy

    Try a stronger jug! I have never had that problem with any of the acids I use.

    Don't have to do with this post but it reminds me....
    I was at the hardware store today and seen what they call "acid magic" The one gal jug was $7.00 and said- safe, no Oder, strong. I don't know what it was? I don't think it was citric I was going to read the back but my old eye's suck and mama wanted to go....I am going back tomorrow to get some and try it out on scrap skins.
