Handling/Disposal
Handling: - Precautions for Safe Handling:
For Household Settings: Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Keep out of the reach of children.
For Non-Household Settings: Avoid contamination with combustible organic matter (e.g., oil, sawdust, damp paper towels, etc.), metal, powder or reducing agents. Contamination may cause decomposition, leading to fire. Decomposition of oxidizing material releases oxygen which may intensify existing fires.

Do not store any tint, lightener lotion or bleach powder after it has been mixed with developer; the container may rupture. Never return unused material to original container. Empty containers should be rinsed with water before discarding. Keep out of reach of children. Decomposition of hydrogen peroxide may occur with increase in pressure and possible container rupture.
For Non-Household Settings: Store in a well ventilate, cool area. Avoid contamination. Store in the original tightly capped containers away from sunlight, heat, sparks and flame. Decomposition of hydrogen peroxide may occur with increase in pressure and possible container rupture.
Disposal: Disposal should be in accordance with Federal, State/Provincial and Local regulations.
