Iodaphor Question

Post by Sixstring78 »

I mixed up some iodaphor last weekend, and when I was finished with it I put it in a glass bottle with a airlock on top. I heard that exposure to air will neutralize it.
It still has the same brownish colour as it did last weekend.
Is it safe to use?

The active in Iodophor (iodine) is either there, or it has dissipated into the air.

If you are seeing the same colour, it is still present, active, and will KILL!
