i noticed before i mixed my vermiculite a real chemical like smell, or at least some concentrated substance within the vermiculite. So i just put a little water in a bowl with the vermiculite toss it around a bit stick in the microwave for 30 seconds take out toss a little more just to get it all evenly distributed and stick back in for another 30 seconds. i did the same thing with the vermiculite i used to top off my jars. i didnt do this before, and when i flipped my jars the last time i got contamination that started from the top of the jars. also before i added the last vermiculite layer i wiped the rim of the jar with alcohol and put the nuked vermiculite in and put lid on and then boil. you might try putting the flour in the microwave or stick it in the over for a few minutes on about 350 spread over a pan. i dont KNOW if it will work but it might :smile:

put it in glass jars and boil it for at least an hour.......cover the bottom of the pot with a towel to prevent the jars from cracking and make sure the jars have a way to vent the heat

drugs are bad
