Smells like Lysol or Sani-Foam
    #1352342 - 03/05/03 12:19 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)


I have a large casing that had a small outbreak of cobweb mold. I sprayed some H2O2 on it, and it disappeared. My casing LOOKS fine...colonized nicely and even some hyphal knots forming already, but whenever I open the tub there is a distinct smell of Lysol or Sani-Foam. I did sterilize the tub with lysol, but I rinsed it off thoroughly and couldn't smell anything afterwards. Is there a particular contaminant known for giving off this kind of odour?

Once I had my tub smelling like methane gas or propane or something. They were still in the jars.. it wasnt to pleasant of a smell to say the least.

If it's indeed lysol you shouldn't have any problem.
Trying to specifically describe a contaminant by its smell it's difficult.

So no ideas eh?

I'm just debating on whether or not to pitch it.

I've had that smell on a number of occasions. It is indeed contam because the smell just got more and more odorous and there was no sign of growth at all for one week. Then the smell turned into a nasty ammonia smell which i then pitched. Don't know what the contam was but it was definitely contam.
