Help needed w/ buffer stability

I also used o-dianisidine and H2O2 as substrates in western blots using
peroxidase-labelled antibodies.  I made up my solutions fresh, right before 
use -- do not store.

Through trial and error, I also discovered that glassware had to be clean.
When I used plasticware, I would get variable staining, which I assumed to
be due to the presence of inhibitors for peroxidase in less clean labware.

I am using a 0.05 M Potatssium Phosphate Buffer containing o-dianisidine and 
h2o2, as a substrate containing solution for a myeloperoxidase assay.  After 
receiving the solution 10 days ago, their was particulate matter in the 
solution, and the myeloperoxidase activity of a standard solution was decrease 
(presumably due to a bad buffer solution).  The buffer solution had been 
refrigerated as directed.
Does anyone have any suggestions, or experience with these buffers so that I 
could avoid this problem?
Thanks in advance.
