I separate mine into separate shelves for Striking, Reducing, and Both. I keep a rod of each glass in a small jar near my torch and, because reading labels mid-bead is a recipe for trouble, I also...

Thanks gentlemen. I scrub everything, but I haven't tried Phill's idea of laying down a core layer of the clear I will use for encasement. Certainly worth a shot.
