Acid
2M HCl solution should be handled with care. Clean up spills immediately. Any acid on skin should be rinsed thoroughly with cold water.

Eye Protection
Goggles should be worn at all times when you are in the laboratory. Do not remove them until you leave the room.

Gloves
Disposable gloves are available in the laboratory in a variety of sizes. Gloves provide only a temporary layer of protection and are permeable to some substances. If your gloves begin to discolor or deteriorate or if you spill acid on your gloves, remove them immediately, wash your hands, and get a new pair.

Waste Disposal
All solutions can be disposed of down the sink this week. Used ion exchange resin should be placed in the labeled beakers for recycling.
