Melafix

Does anyone else think Melafix is hard to pour? Every time I try to pour it into the little measuring cup I use, it runs down the side of the bottle (both 4 and 8 oz sizes). I always have to do cleanup of the general area after using Melafix.

How do you guys pour it?

I use a small syringe and just suck it out of the bottle!

That sounds like a good idea. I'll look for it next time I'm at the LFS.

Ask for syringes at pharmacies if you can not get them at the LFS. Where I live (Maine), all pharmacies carry syringes and will sell them to anyone who asks. They are mostly for people with diabetes but sometimes people just want them for various projects (and hopefully not drugs). The syringes were 20 cents each last time I checked. Pretty good deal for a medical grade measuring device. I just snapped the needles off before using them to measure.

I have never had a problem with it. Maybe I am the one doing something wrong!

I would like to thank my chemistry professors and biology professors, along with all my former students. Nothing like an audience to make one get their pouring straight!

Pouring

Hi. - I can happily state that I've only used it twice - but I resorted to an eye-dropper from my local pharmacy. - Frank/Guppyman
