Time-Saving Teacher Tip-Clean Glassware

How clean is your glassware? If it’s awful, then bring it all home and run it through your dishwasher. Do not mix glassware from the lab with anything from home in the same load. After the wash cycle is complete and you’ve got the glassware out, run another rinse wash to make sure you removed all the chemicals.
