How about DAB alternatives? Is New Fuschin stable enough to keep for

Back to DAB, if you add copper or something to intensify or alter the
color of the end-product before rinsing away the DAB, would that solution
do anything to alter the mutagenic characteristics of the DAB in the
waste solution?

Can you put the precipitate in the biohazard waste, which is incinerated,
or does it have to be treated differently from that, even?
