    Used wrong cylinder

    I accidentally used the "other than chlorine" cylinder to test chlorine. Have I ruined that cylinder for other tests, or is it the chlorine test that gets compromised if done in a cylinder that's been used for other tests? The "chlorine only" cylinder has only been used for chlorine tests.
    Thanks.

    Just rinse it out. It's fine.

    The chlorine only cylinder tends to get discolored with time is all.

    On that note, I recall a thread or two with folks being able to clean that Chlorine Only cylinder...with MA, perhaps? I have little black specks all over mine.
