Jennifer:

We acid wash our glassware when doing silver procedures.  I use 20% nitric
acid and wash well with distilled water.

Is anyone out there acid washing their glassware?  If so what type of acid
are you using?  Do you acid wash all glassware or just after certain
staining procedures (ie silver stains)?

On another note:  I would be interested in any feedback on the BioGenex
Optimas Plus (reliability, quality of stains, service problems etc).
