RE: [Histonet] removing silver from counters, etc.


I'm not sure about counters, but for skin I've always use potassium
ferrocyanide followed by Hypo.

Happy Friday everyone.
Can somebody remind me what solutions will remove silver nitrate from
cabinets, floors, counters, etc.?
Bleach just changes these spots to different shades of brown.  I
remember using solution from hair perms in the past  but I am sure that
there are other reliable ways.  
Thanks for any advice.  Our lab is starting to resemble a dalmation!
You know how silver solution likes to migrate from the coplin jars!
