Reusable Potion Bottle Tips

Hi All,

I want to start making potion bottles for my Halloween collection and have a ton of ideas thanks to you all but I still have one main question. What do you use for the liquid so that I do not have to empty out and refill every year. I read that someone used light hair gel because it lasts longer than water... are we talking that it will last 3-5 years or just the entire month? Someone else mentioned adding dish washing soap and another added salt and vinegar to their water to make it last long without getting moldy. Ideally, I will want something that will last about 3+ years. Have any of you had any luck with liquid filled ones lasting years?

First WELCOME. I am a HUGE bottle and Apothecary guy. I have found that with some items like my mad scientist beakers and such it ONE time and then empty and store. I have been using dish soap a LOT lately and have some items I will be getting out of storage soon so I will let you know but I suspect they should be fine. This is a tricky area and in may case I also do not want items that might FREEZE.

You will find a LOT of stuff on the forum, I am SO glad I found it. Enjoy and jump in anywhere. Oh yea there is a thread about bottles and such at :
