Re: stinky stuff



Hi Cathy, Everyone--
I have done just as you recommend, pouring off my working supply into a jar
that's clean and air tight. My main supply has remained "untouched by human
hands" so to speak, or brush, so it's unlikely that it became contaminated
in that way. But thanks for mentioning proper handling. It's always good to
be reminded of correct working methods.
Warmest wishes
Diane in San Diego
