Different Plastic?
These bottles look like those clear hard plastic bottles,that are harder to squeeze. Like the ones Halo uses for their 6ml size or 10ml sample sizes. Are these a different plastic?

I`d bet a new Boge that these are also PET plastic - I don`t like the hard ones at all, even the 60ml ones were unsqueezeable.

V UK....I can't take that bet because I agree with you. I also, hate those hard ones. They're not only harder to squeeze...but after so many squeezes ,it stays dented and doesn't pop back out to its usual shape.
I need some educating. Does " PET" mean that it's the hard plastic bottles ( dunce cap on my head) ?
Thanks

Yes, PET is this clear hard plastic.

It can be harder to squeeze, some way more than others depending on how thick the bottle is, but in general yes these are harder to squeeze than the LDPE especially with the smaller sizes bottles. Most have a sweet spot though, squeeze it at just the right spot and the juice will come out super easy

PET bottles can deform easily if placed into hot water, so for all your DIY'rs out there be careful if you pre-steep directly in hot water. They'll keep their shape as long as it's not too hot, so you can still do it you just have to be careful until you know how hot is too hot :)

NoneGiven ......thanks for the brain food . I can finally take that dunce cap off LOL! It was a very interesting read indeed.

@JoPatterson... Lucky for me , that none of my juices are tank crackers, and I hope I never have to experience it ( knock on wood). I'm not sure if these are made from the same plastic. But either way, I don't like these type of bottles. (:

I wish I had read Nonegiven2's advice about the hot water. I first soaked these bottles in hot tap water for a while and that didn't affect them. I then submerged them in near boiling water and all the bottles became deformed and warped out of shape:(
