    Safe to Dispose TF100 Test Results into Same Container?

    I have a TF100 test kit, and am wondering if there is any hazard in dumping each of the included tests into the same container after I complete the test? I would normally just set each vial aside until I was ready to wash and dispose of everything, but I just got a Taylor SpeedStir. So I was thinking of dumping all the completed tests into a quart size container and then grab the speedstir pill to use for the next test.

    That would not be a problem. The reagents are virtually harmless.

    I do my testing in the kitchen. After each test, I put the vial under the faucet until it overflows and is clear, then dump it into my hand to grab the pill. Keeps your hands out of the chemicals.

    Okay, thanks all. I'll just dump everything in a container until I can get more pills (or whatever that thing is called). Got to say, I used it for the first time today, and it makes things a lot easier...and faster!
