i assume you would have to add more water then usual because some water is bound to evaporate...

simply drain afterwards with latex gloves on...

There's no need to buy a 7% solution just make it yourself. Say you need 100 ml, all you need to do is mix 7 ml of H?O? into 93 ml of water. Simple as that.

ok, i guess i should have been a little more specific...i use 3% hydrogen peroxide, in an approx 10:1 (water:peroxide) ratio, so 10 cups water to 1 cup h2o2
but i use a little less h2o2 for my liking, just personal preference, 10:1 is definatly adequete for decreasing contamination chances.
