I really want to etch--and Kittykill's video makes it look so easy!  Here's my question though:  I don't have a utility sink.  Where's the best place to rinse your etched glass when it's time?  I'm afraid of ruining our stainless steel kitchen sink or new powder room sink.  Suggestions?

Behind every great crafter is a kitteh, waiting to eat patterns, sprawl on fabric, and attack knitting.

First, scrape off as much of the etching creme as you can before rinsing and put it back in the bottle (yes, it can be reused!). If you have access to an outdoor spigot and hose, that would be your best option. Otherwise, I'd get a big plastic tub, fill it no more than half full with water, and rinse in that. When you're done, fill the tub up the rest of the way with water and let in run down the sink/tub/toilet, and keep adding lots of water to dilute it even more.

I'd suggest just filling a bucket with water. Leave your gloves on and just rinse it off in the bucket. Then when you pour it out outside make sure and wet the area with a hose to help dilute it.
