Plastic Utensils for Handling ?
    #1246417 - 01/24/03 04:41 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

If I were to use plastic utensils to handle certain things [ie. taking out the vermiculite in the jars before caking, etc. etc.] would i need to sterilize them? or would they be sterile enough to not have to worry?

I'm no expert but I would say you should at the very least wipe down your utensils with some bleach water or lysol.

would rubbing alcohol kill the spores if used? [or would it kill anything else] ?

Rubbing alcohol should work. It will evaporate quickly (a few seconds) so I doubt that it would harm your spores. Just wipe them down with damp cloth (or an "alcohol prep pad") and in a few seconds they will be dry and sterile.
