Any house hold stuff that could be used to obtain the correct humidity for birthing? I'd have to drive 45miles to get perlite. No thanks. lol

got any clay flower pots laying around ?
if they are used you can sterilize them in bleach, and boil for a while .
wrap them in a towel, crack them up into 1/4-1/2" peices .
works like geo-lite . maybe not as well, not sure, i haven't tried geo-lite .

I'm sure you have to spray it with water, make sure it's damp, the lysol is to sterilize it
