    This has so far prevented a similar problem. It's not prevented a houseguest getting up in the middle of the night and drinking from a vase, though... Apparently I need to label a few more things...
    Do you have dogs? Maybe you could try labeling your toilet bowl....

    Isn't the question really - do you have dogs that can read the labels?

    Okay, so my experience isn't photography related but who cares. It was chemistry class in high school. We were told never to pipette anything by mouth but to use the rubber suction bulb instead. I didn't listen. Thought I could control that hydrosulfurous acid with my own suction. I was wrong and got a mouth full. Never swallowed it, but my teeth felt funny for a few days after. Needless to say, once I got to a university chemistry course I always, always, always used the suction bulb. Haha!

    Perhaps just label the dogs so the house guest doesn't try to drink from them?

    Just a minor point here, but AFAIK there are no salt mines in or near (25+ miles or so) of Rochester NY. There are large ones in Mt. Morris and in Retsof NY, but none here. We do use a lot of salt though, but that is to be expected with the amount of snowfall we have. Buffalo and Syracuse have the same problems.

    Why don't you work with your chemicals in your bathroom/shower/toilet area? I've had nearly the smallest bathroom (with bathtub) known to mankind and never once did I have the urge to use my kitchen for photo stuff instead. I do use recycled softdrinks bottles but they're now in such a state that no one would touch'em or mistake them for beverages... plus they're stored in the bathroom, who drinks softdrinks in the bathroom?

    I remember that. I even paid for an undercoating once. The car still rusted out. We use a lot of road salt here in the Northeast.
