cool, so far I'm doing the right thing then.... I've always been afraid of contamination and never dipped the q-tip back into the bottle once it's used. I always grabbed a new one.
I'll also curb my craving to pour the used dipping cup into the bottle as well... the stuff, while not brake the bank expensive, isn't cheap :-)
so, lets say I keep the dipping cup and pour it into an old pill bottle or similliar glass or plastic sealed container... do you think I could re-use it out of there? or should I just plain suck it up and keep disposing of it when I'm done and try not to pour WAY too much into the little dipping cup? LOL
