Keep your lab areaKeep your lab area neatneat andand cleanclean!!
Your lab equipment should be:
1. Clean before using it.
2. Checked (if glassware) for cracks, broken edges,
and “stars” – discard if damaged.
3. Carefully washed and rinsed, and stored in the
proper place when done using it.
1. Each lab station has plenty of soap, water, and a sink.
Use only a very small amount of soap to wash
equipment! And make sure it is all rinsed very well.
2. Wash your hands when finished with lab.
3. Paper towels are located in the back of the room.
4. We also have floor brooms, table brushes, and
dustpans for clean up.
