  3. Hold the strip by the red end, where the product name (XYL) is printed. Do not touch the white section of the strip 

  4. Holding the strip vertically, dip the wavy end of the test strip into the liquid for 15 seconds. Do not dip past the solid maximum line. 

  5. Remove the strip. Place it on a flat, non-absorbent surface for 5 minutes. 

  6. Read the results. Do not read the results after 10 minutes.
