Re: Tossing a penny in the waterbath. . .

From:Tara Miller

I've always found that using flat water works best. We fill our waterbaths 
in the afternoon with DI water from a container that has been sitting all 
day. Add a little adhesive and it sits all night for any air in the water to 
dissapate. We never have any bubbles unless somebody forgets to turn on all 
the waterbaths, then it's hot water from the tap and Uff da! bubbles 
everywhere. :)
