colored jugs

I have a question that I didn't find an answer to on FAQ or I either missed it. But some gallon and 1/2 gallon milk jugs in my part of the country are yellow, and of course some juice jugs such as prune juice bottles are colored. Can these type plastic colored jugs and bottles be used for WS ? would they be as effective as the clear and white jugs? thanks

Use the thumb test. If you can see your thumb through the plastic...fine. If the jug is opaque, you will have to remove the top and secure something clearer to let sunlight in.
