Good Alternative to Cool Mist
    #1360006 - 03/09/03 10:38 AM (14 years, 7 months ago)

Hey folks. Don't wanna spend $30-$40 or more on a Cool Mist or a Ultrasonic? Do what I did for my edibles.

Take a 6-7 gallon tub, fill it about 1/3 way up with water. Put about 1 cup of bleach in there, and also 1 cup of H2O2 to ward of contaminants and algae.

You may alter this, but I have about two 6'' microbubbler airstones and one 8'' airstone in there going 24/7. Right now my RH is 99%, there's moisture condensation on the sides, it looks like fog on a mirror.

I also threw a 6'' heater in there (it's only 65F in the thing) but it barely does anything hehe.

Good luck.

Chlorine bleach destroys Hydrogen Peroxide, so your efforts at mixing them would be a waste. Makes a real cool reaction, and plenty of oxygen though...

Yes, so don't drink it!

Crap. Yesterday I mixed the two in the tub and a bunch of gases arose. I breathed some in. I wonder if I'll die :\.

Oh well that was yesterday and I'm still alive :smile:.

Should I just use H2O2 then? I got it from KMart. Only 3%.
It's just I don't want algae growing.

ahh..gases..chlorine..breathing. not a good combo..Try not to mix anything with bleach.except water..I'm not sure of the reaction with peroxide.. but dont' mix it,,....i doubt you have to worry much about algae if the water is moving...

lol I wouldn't be too sure about that.
I had a tray with a 8'' airstone constantly on with just water and algae grew. So I added some H2O2. Algae still grew. So I sprayed some lysol in there. Algae still grew.

if you lightproof it, algae won't grow... but you might have a problem with the shrooms not getting any light then, so you could just lightproof it as much as possible while at the same time allowing the shrooms to get light...
