Default Bottling Sauces and Rubs

So we've had some limited success with some rubs and sauces that we've made. I would like to maybe bottle some up for family and for trade. Not looking at anything commercial at all right now.

My question is how do I go about bottling sauces and rubs. Rubs I would think would be pretty simple, get rub bottle, add rub. I guess my main question with Rubs is what is the anti-caking agent's effect on taste, etc. Where do you get it, and how much do you add.

Sauces are a little more complex. How do I ensure the safety of the sauce? I know Spicewine suggested about 2 years ago ensuring below a 4.5 ph would do it. How do you measure ph? I have some pool testing kits, but I don't think sticking the little dip stick into the sauce is going to work since I won't be able to see the strips color.

Additionally, where can one get sauce and rub bottles? Labels I could make on a computer at this point. Again, not after anything fancy in that respect.

Any help or advice on bottling would be terrific.
