This comes in a small plastic vial with an attached cap. If it's cold enough, the gallium inside will be solid, making it virtually impossible to remove. Just run hot water over the vial and it will melt and you can then just pour it out. Take care though, because this can separate into tiny drops that can easily get away, and, being a metal, it won't exactly soak into a paper towel or sponge. I found the easiest way to return it to the vial is to scoop it up with a piece of paper or plastic sheet. If it's on a smooth surface, you can use ice to harden it and make it easier to pick up.
Warning. This is a soft metal, and will melt easily, and as such,it will readily mark surfaces if it rubbed across. If you're handling it with your hands, your hands will get dirty. It's best to keep it over a protective surface like a plastic sheet to prevent this from marking up a table to counter-top. And whatever you do, avoid dropping it on cloth or on a carpet! It will be practically impossible to get it out.
This stuff works great in ice cube molds.
It takes a few minutes to heat up in your hand.
But when it does it will be liquid gallium as described.
It leaves a slight grayish residue on your hand so just wash them after handling.
The metal will return to its solid state after cooling down so store in an appropriate container.
Be careful on moving the liquid in your hand because it will easily fall out and you will lose your gallium!
Then along comes gallium. All the spectacle of mercury without that pesky brain damage. If you work with kids, drop a vial of this stuff in hot water to melt it, then carefully open and pour into a small, shallow bowl for them to touch. Guarantee they'll be amazed. There's no other sensation quite like it.
Now getting it back into the vial is a bit of a trick. Very unlikely you'll get all of it. And be warned: gallium stains, leaving charcoal-colored blotches on whatever it touches. And these blotches seem to spontaneously generate and magically get on everything within about a mile radius. But for about ten bucks—far less than the cost of a ticket to the next Hangover sequel—this stuff can't be beat.
