Has anyone out there got any suggestions of how to remove large amounts
(50mls or so!) of ethidium bromide 10mgs/ml from vinyl type lab floor, now
thoroughly stained, and much more importantly can anyone recommend how to
wash 10mls or so out of a much loved pair of Levi's 501s? Maniatis has
nothing in the index about decontaminating denim!

floor furiously, with only a lab coat to hide his modesty, not looking
forward to walking home trouserless in sub-zero Cambridge)
