A Negative Status Effect taken by an ally as a result of being attacked or inflicted by a spell can be reversed with this Spell. This Spell is especially useful for those who play evil characters who do not have the Spell but are unwittingly inflicting an adverse status effect on one of their allies. Similarly, to its original counterpart acid bath glassware it can be used in the event of a significant battle to ensure that any party members who have fallen back return to the front lines with as many hit points as they had before they fell.

What is an Acid Bath?

Cleaning glassware with corrosive acids requires a container with a non-sealable lid for the acid bath. There is a potential for pressurization with buckets and tight-fitting containers. Acid baths should be prepared in rectangular or cylindrical containers of the smallest size possible. The Nalgene tank can be used as an example of a rectangular product that can be used for acid baths.

A cylindrical container can be made using a small plastic jug. A smaller container such as a 1-liter Nalgene bottle can also be used. The Nalgene bottle can be used as a container for cleaning glassware with corrosive acids. Buckets and other containers that are tight fitting can result in pressurization, which leads to an increase in the concentration of HCl in the acid bath. In order to prevent this from occurring, buckets and other containers that are tight-fitting should be removed from the acid bath and acid levels should be checked after a few minutes. If the concentration of HCl in the acid bath is still too high, the acid bath should be allowed to cool for a few minutes before being replaced into the acid bath. Once the acid bath has been completely emptied, the bucket or container should be thoroughly rinsed with water before reusing.

What Is the Proper Way to Clean Laboratory Glassware?

It is best to start with the gentlest methods, removing any solids with a scraper and then cleaning using brushes, normal soaps, and detergents. Try soaking the carpet longer and using harsher cleaners if this doesn’t work. Once the glassware has been cleaned, rinse it thoroughly and allow it to dry. Here are some suggestions and pointers that can help you with each stage of this process:

Clean It As Soon As Possible

After you have finished using glassware, you should wash it immediately in hot water or a glassware washer to prevent hard-to-remove residue. If you can’t wash glassware immediately after using it, Corning suggests soaking it in water.

Choose Your Brush Wisely

The glassware should be thoroughly scrubbed with laboratory glassware cleaning brushes. It is a good idea to keep a variety of brushes on hand suitable for cleaning all kinds of laboratory glassware, including test tubes, funnels, flasks, and bottles. In order to prevent accidental scratches or abrasions on glassware, Corning recommends using brushes with wooden or plastic handles instead of metal handles. When the bristles of an overly worn brush no longer prevent the spine from hitting the glass, the brush can cause accidental scratches, too.

Use A Glass Cleaner as Well

Many soaps, detergents, and cleaning powders are available for washing laboratory glassware. Corning claims that cleaning agents containing mild abrasives will perform better on extremely dirty glassware, provided they don’t scratch the surface.

Give it a Soak

According to the University of Wisconsin Office of Chemical Safety, a long soak in a gentle solvent might be the next step if basic cleaners don’t work or if there’s material in places brushes can’t reach. The efficacy can be enhanced if the heat soak or mild agitation is used.

Sterile Before Cleaning When Necessary

Life sciences manufacturer MilliporeSigma recommends sterilizing some glassware before cleaning. This group containsglassware contaminated with blood clots and glassware on which viruses or spore-bearing bacteria live. Autoclaves and steam ovens can be used to sterilize glassware, or a 30-minute boil with 1% to 2% soap or detergent can do the trick.
