The School Science Lab DOT System

If there is one thing about science chemical labs it is that their inventories are generally a mess.  One way to keep them organized is to get rid of the chemicals that are not used annually by performing a chemical sweep.  But determining which chemicals were used and which weren’t is anyone’s guess.  Until now.  With the simple use of a the DOT system, teachers can mark the bottle and products with a “dot” sticker when they use them. Doing a lab? Dot it.  Used a little? Dot it.
Products without stickers haven’t been used all year.  Making it easy to identify and ask the question – do I really need this?  If not, get rid of it.
