Cotton Swabs as a filter?
    #1145697 - 12/16/02 12:53 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I was wondering if it would be a good idea to use cotton swabs as a filter on the top of your quart spawn jars where the hole is? Would they cause any problems?

I don't think that would cause any problems. Should be fine.

I was just thinking they might absorb water and get soaked and then no let much air through, but there shouldn't be enough water in those jars to do that in the first place I guess.

it's been asked before. Not a good idea. It's organic material and can contaminate.

Wouldn't filter discs be made of paper, and therefore also organic? Or are they some kind of synthetic material?

Nope, not paper. Depends upon what kind you use, tyvek is made from, well, tyvek, and polyfil, well, polyfil.
