    I am sure you all know I am not a fan of anything createx makes , but I do have a bottle CI and reducer standing around waiting for me to bring it back , I know the bottle with the reducer in it was not full as I used a few drops just to test it with the CI .
    this bottle is standing around for a few weeks now and I noticed it was half empty so I checked if I left the bottle open or if it had a leak : it is closed but it leaks a bit though the cap.
    I know there are supposed to be a minor amount of solvents in the reducer but evaporating like this much makes me think it is more than just a minor amount

    You have something else going on. I have multiple bottles of CI and HP reducers that were opened well over a year ago with no evaporation.

    Yea I transfer my 4011 and 4012 from the big bottles to 2oz dropper bottles and left the cap off a big bottle of 4012 once for almost 3 weeks and nothing had evaporated.
    Very odd that half a bottle is missing after a few weeks, don't really know how to explain that one.

    Did you mistake it for your scotch??? Ha ha just kidding!! I have some 4010 left from years back and it's still fine, not evaporating, I have the 4012/500 and the 5091 Createx Illustration Reducers I've had well over a year in various sizes bottles with no issues? Not sure what the deal is.

    Yes I've never experienced this either. Are you sure the pixies haven't snuck in and spilt some, and are too scared to own up. Those little buggers get everywhere.
