Can you safely store Acid Magic (low fume Muriatic Acid) in Bettix Bottle for easy measuring into the hot tub?

Is the fact that Bettix bottles are clear a problem?

Is this Bettix bottle labeled to show there is acid in it?
If not, it's not safe to store the acid in it. Use it for measuring the acid and wash it out after each use. Don't store any chemicals in an unlabeled bottle.

How do you clean a bottle that had acid in it? Rinsing it with water will not neutralize the acid. You need to wash it with baking soda. Not easy to wash it after every use.

Yes, the Bettix bottle is labeled and I will not clean it. I'll just use it for Acid Magic. Just used Bettix bottle for adding Acid Magic after a fill. It worked great! Really convenient, fast and it seems to dramatically reduce the risk of a spill. :)
