So I bought a poppers mask from Ali Express, had a cotton swab you'd fill up, no risk of spilling. And it was great! So convenient, great quality hits.

Unfortunately when I went to clean it the next day all the plastic has been degraded and the whole unit smelt awful. Clearly Amyl is solvent and no good for plastics.
Other than glass, what other materials are safe to store Amyl in?

Is popper masks worth it? Considering buying one myself

All plastics are different. The plastic caps that glass poppers bottles come with donít degrade. Some poppers do come in aluminium bottles too. I would store poppers in the bottle they come in, the glass bottles are amber coloured to stop the uv light degrading the poppers and keep them in a cool dark place. I also use a popperbam nozzle, they are plastic and work great.

DumbDumb.

The type I got made entirely out of plastic was great until the plastic melted. As a single use item, (I'll probably have to throw it away) not at all worth it. If I could've gotten 100 uses out of it 100% worth it. Gona keep my eye out for other options.

That's sad. The one I was about to buy was a plastic. I would love to have something like it.

I take it itís the mask that looks like an oxygen mask? Seriously not worth getting, waste of money. Better off with a gasmask and filter.

Yes, it is the 'rush popper mask'

Right plastic in the right place.

I am reading up a lot about poppers, how to keep them fresh and what kind of materials can be used.

So far nothing beats glass but the plastic seals in the lid caps is PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) The hard plastic caps themselves do deteriorate when exposed but that doesn't happen too often.

Make sure you don't loose the seal out of cheaper bottles. It can be wafer thin.
