Does this group have any tips for safe glassware handling when using oil baths?
I understand how to handle the heat part, but particularly tips/tricks for oily / slippery round bottom flasks and how to wipe them (relatively clean) so they don't get oil everywhere all the time.....
The specific application is for 2 and 3 liter sized roundbottom flasks being used on a rotary evaporator - lots of attaching/detaching is necessary periodically..
Thanks! This group is a wealth of knowledge and although I've been out of the teaching lab for awhile, I still oversee a lab that I want to be safe and don't have other scientists around with which to confer.
