Before you leave, put all tools, stamps, and tub in the bleach water for 2-3 minute and set them on a clean, dry towel to dry for 2 minutes. Pick tools up with the towel and place them in the tub. Then place tub on shelf where you found it, using the towel.5- As you use equipment, like the slab roller & wheels, wipe it down with bleach water, when you are done.6-Please make sure ONLY YOUR NAME shows when you put your work on shelves, so that others don’t have to open your bag to find their own pieces.7-Plastic bags- please take out 3-5 new bags(whatever you need) and write your name on them.
