    As far a storage of Ed's Red, I've found that polyethylene bottles allow for the acetone/MEK/xylene to evaporate through the bottle's wall. I recommend using a glass or, preferably, metal container with a sealed cap/lid.

    Contrary to the original post verbiage and formulation, acetone is not aromatic. It is currently also not considered carcinogenic or mutagenic. It can cause problems by acute respiratory overexposure. But generally speaking it is the least harmful ingedient in the recipe.
