    Maybe I've been traumatized by people like the "cancer guy."
    Thanks for helping to keep my feet on the ground.

    You can usually tell by the smell. Just waft your hand over the container and carefully sniff.

    If you are worried about selenium don't use extra strength Head and shoulders shampoo and if you do you had better bottle your bath water and take it to the Hazmat station

    Movie film cleaner used to be Triclorothane with a bit of wax to lubricate the film. Should last forever, but has been banned for years. Don't know about the edwal stuff but probaly in the same family. Just hope it is not Carbon Tet.

    Fixer tastes like ... ? Who the heck would know? No, stop bath probably would taste like vinegar, but please don't taste the chems. I'm one of the people who is constantly urging folks not to pay too much attention to alarmist exaggerations of the "horrors" of photochemistry, but I would say it's an incredibly bad idea to ingest any photo solution.

    If you're going to transfer KRST into a new container, why not do it right and use a proper brown glass bottle? Used well, KRST can have a very long life, so perhaps this is not the best place to economize.
