OxyClean Containers

Recommended Posts

We've just polished off a tub of OxyClean (well, the Sainsbury's version) and I found myself considering the container ... plastic with a screw lid, seems pretty water resistant and the ideal size for a decent sized 'small' cache. Has anyone used one / come across one as a cache - do they stand the test of time? I'm all for recycling where I can, I'd usually consign such a neat little tub to my tool cupboard for screws and such but with a paint job at first reckoning it seems ideal for caching ...

I have a couple of these containers lined up for cache hides. So yes I think they seem very good. Just make sure you've removed the labels so as not to advertise Oxycleen or Sainsburys (advertising is against the rules) LOL

This is true - I found that cache (my 100th!) just as the snow had gone and it had held up really well! :D

 

I am glad G7HRP replied with that, because until that moment, I was thinking 'Oxyclean? As in the spot treatment?!' - Now I get what you mean!

That sounds like good product testing with excellent results thanks!

 

They certainly wake you up when you find one and open it ! ;)

i have found 2 of these containers out in the field, and they hold up well to the eliments.

 

i have 2 to put out using this container and one of them is the big jumbo size with 33% extra free but i need to mammouth tape it as its bright pink!!

 

when ever i have a container that could be used i do a submerge test, for a few minuets, not only does it tell you if the cotainer is watertight but makes all labels and stickers fall off.
