I've found that the resin is the more clear of the two, but, on a new package, the hardner usually hasn't started to yellow yet, so that method isn't fool proof.
It's much safer to take they syringe apart, and soak both halves in denatured alcohol.
Disassembe, wipe both pieces down, and reassemble.
Then reassemble, and pump fresh alcohol in and out of the syringe a few times.
Last, label the syringe so you'll know which is which for next time.
The whole process should take you 5 minutes, and you won't have to worry if you got it right.

I already cleaned out a syringe two days ago exactly how you said. its so much cheaper buying the big bottles i should have done it a year ago.
I paid $12 for the 9oz kit at the local True Value...

Thanks Catch it. I went to Harbor Freight and they were loaded with D2T. I tried the local Ace and True Value and the auto parts stores with no luck.

I went to Tractor Supply today and they had Permatex 30 min for $3.59. Used it today and it seems to be the exact same stuff as D2T. It comes in a yellow and black package.

I just got off the phone with Harbor Freight customer service and they said they've discontinued it as well....

My local Harbor Freight has about a dozen syringes of DT2 for $2.50 each. Maybe I need to snatch them up just in case.
I sent in an order for clear lure coat into Dick Nite, but haven't received it yet.
