can I put hand sanitiser in PVC bottles or must the bottles be PET. With the shortage of bottles I am keen to know if a 70% ethanol or isapropyl based sanitiser will distort or soften a PVC bottle in the short term or long term?

A don't see major problems in storing it in a PVC bottle, PVC is not soluble in ethanol, neither in isopropanol. However, in this site they rate isopropyl alcohol as A while ethanol as C (with possible swelling in the long term).
