    Hello,

    I have run out of space in the drawer where I keep my chems. I have two medium containers of EDTA and sodium acetate (both in white, opaque containers) that cannot fit. I would like to know if I can leave these out on a shelf, (still not getting direct light), without any problems - like I said, the containers aren't clear, but I stilll want to be sure. Thanks!

    They aren't particularly light sensitive and you shouldn't have a problem with what you described.
