Personal protective equipment for exposure to mercury should be worn. 3. Ventilate the contaminated area. 4. Do not use any Mercsorb products dry when picking-up a mercury spill. 5. Remove lid with attached Mercsorb sponge from the jar. 6. Activate the powder with 1 ml water evenly across the surface of the sponge.
