B&W printing – how to recycle Ilford chemical bottle

Ilford, now Harman, ship their chemicals in high quality bottles made to outlast humanity. Not so good though is the cardboard disc they have always used in the screw-top lid. This has always been a drag for things like photowash where the contents last for years but the lid goes soggy in weeks. It is a pity though not to reuse these high quality bottles just because the lids are rubbish. My easy answer is to buy plummers ‘O’-rings, which you can get in a perfect fit, cost next to nothing and last forever.
