Out of aluminum foil - alernative?
    #1353726 - 03/06/03 04:33 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

My rabbit thiks he is ready to start a new project, anyway he got everything but aluminum foil to cover the jars when sterilizing... he is too lazy to go to the store and buy a roll, couse its snowing :frown: ... he was wondering if he could just make 4x4 peaces of transparent plastic, from some bag... and cover the holes on top, and atach it with a rubber band... he doesnt want to mess with tapes, becouse it takes whole lota times, to cover every hole with a tape, and then remove it when inculating the jars... he is planning just to poke the niddle through plastic in a very very cheap glove box, and inculate all jars as quickly as posible... then put them in the incubator, and check on them every other week... will this work?

plastic mihgt melt, unless it's oven bag or seal-o-meal quality .
wax paper will work, and some use two layers of coffee filter, held in place with thick rubber bands or string .

coffee filters, sound like a good idea... but won't the water simply go through it?

like i said, masking tape is a big pain in the ass to tape on and tape off... besides that shit gets stuck to the lid after sterilization, and leaves nasty makrs and small plastic peaces... i'll just go buy aluminum foil :frown:

yeah, i was having that problem, and then i tried this: just wipe each tape-covered injection hole with a little alcohol, then inject right through it. that's what i do. i'm convinced that it's the cleanest way to inoculate. the hole it leaves in the tape is very, very small.
