RE: [Histonet] acid washed glassware
We use 20% nitric acid in distilled water. We let it sit in the glassware for at least 30 minutes then pour it back into the container (we re-use the solution for 3 months) and then thoroughly rinse the glassware with distilled water. We clean the glassware just before use and we primarily use acid cleaned glassware for silver procedures. We routinely have our glassware cleaned by our glassware department which uses strong detergents and high temperatures so the glassware is cleaned very well but we still acid clean for our silver procedures.

What concentration and what acid do you use to clean glassware prior to
silver impregnation staining. Do you simply rinse it or is it soaked for a
specific period of time? Air or oven dried?
