Boy, Oh Boy!!!!! that is like making friends with the devil ...nah, you
don't wish to end up like Dr. Faustus .... Please, oh please please use
gloves, the nitrile ones that fit you well...and don't mess around with EtBr
....... for the few drops, I suppose there's nothing you can do now ...so the
best way is the forget it ...probably, for a feel-good cut down on all the
goodies that you've been on, all the ummm so rich cakes and chips and
whatever else, and eat some vegetables of all colours that are high in
anti-oxidants ))
just so that you know
: EtBr intercalates with the DNA, and is a potential carcinogen and
teratogen ....
Should you get it on your hands, wash it off with a detergent....

best,
