Reusing polyfill lids
    #1632219 - 06/13/03 11:25 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

I have a simple question. Usually my jars colonize but this time it isn't the case. I have about 6 jars that never showed any mycelium. These are quart jars of birdseed w. polyfill lids. I was about to make some more jars, I was wondering if I could just unscrew the lids off the jars that didn't colonize and use those same lids, polyfill and all on the new jars. Instead of having to make new ones. The jars didn't contam or anything, just never showed any germination of spores. It's all getting sterilzed anyways so I figured it might not be a problem. Thanks!!!

Sure you can. Rinse them good before you reuse them.
