bleach in water help prevent contams while dunking?
    #1299453 - 02/11/03 10:44 AM (15 years, 4 months ago)

I dont have any h2o2 and I was wondering if I put a small amount of bleach in the water where i'm going to dunk would it help prevent contams and will it hurt the cakes in any way?
thanks

yeah it works, i think the ratio is like 1 part bleach to 250-300 parts water. i THINK, did you search? this has been discussed numerous times

edit: also, you can get h2o2 practically ANYWHERE even a damn convenience store for <.50 cents.

dunk in cool tap water.

larger volumes of water are the answer to preventing contams while dunking.

fully colonized substrates are pretty contam resistent. I doubt dunking will be a mayor factor IF it contaminates.

8.5 year old thread bump. Dunking used to be a relatively new idea.

FWIW, tap water is dilute bleach water.

Try finding <.50c h2o2 at a convenience store nowadays!
