  1. I'm glad that lots of people seem to have enjoyed this! This is one of my older videos (over 4 years old) and I've improved a lot since then.

  2. Continued: density test with isopropyl alcohol and water. HDPE will sink while PP will float in a narrow but workable range . Place a chip of both known types in a cup, add alcohol, then very slowly add some water and stir each time. It’s not much water but at some point the PP will float. Now you can test each type of cap and store the mixture in closed container for future

  3. Very nice instruction! I have found two kinds of lids: HDPE(#2) and PP(#5) and can tell the difference. PP when used as beverage lid always has a thin liner in the top where HDPE never does. Also you can do a density test
