Wash bottle

A spray bottle or washbottle is a laboratory device for dispensing liquids such as water, acetone or ethanol. In addition to the laboratory, spray bottles are used in many places where liquids must be accurately and dosed.

Modern spray bottles consist of a hermetically sealed polyethylene bottle body and a curved riser tube that extends into the liquid. The liquid is forced out through a small opening at the end of the tube by squeezing the bottle, so that the target of the jet and the amount of liquid can be accurately dosed.

A spray bottle is constructed in the same way for sucking up small amounts of liquid (not to be confused with a vacuum-tight feeding bottle). The angled riser is cut from a polyethylene wash bottle or the angled riser is kept straight; Turned upside down, the previously squeezed empty bottle can be used to easily pick up both spilled liquids and mercury spheres.
