(Possibly) a dumb question about glassware cleaning.
« on: March 01, 2019, 05:26:13 AM »
Hello chemists,

I work as a software engineer and on the side I teach myself chemistry using NileRed/NurdRage and cody's videos.

Now I have gotten my hands on some Copper (II) Chloride dihydrate which I got to do some recrystallization since the crystals can be very beautiful on this compound.

Now this whole experiment has been pretty much a success I am left with glassware/tools used in this experiment, now copper chloride is not allowed to be released into the environment, however now I am wondering on the proper procedures for cleaning glassware that has been in contact with such compounds. can I just clean these using water, acetone and demineralized water? all that would be left is invisible trace amounts on the sides.

Sorry for my english (I am dutch).
Thanks in advance.
