Do like you oughter, add the acid to the water

Friendly reminder - do like you oughter add the acid to the water.A helpful old time tip from HS3 for those mixing their own chemicals or working with acids, bases, farming, prospecting or inventing / tinkering at home or on the homestead!

Remember, “Do like you oughter, add the acid to the water”.  In this way you avoid frothing, foaming, gassing or other unpleasant surprises while working with chemistries.  Always submerge your ore or other materials in a water bath FIRST, then add the acids, bases or other chemicals to the water bath or damp materials.
