Can i dissenfect the syringe with lysol spray?
    #1652248 - 06/22/03 12:08 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

I innoculated my jars in a bleached down bathroom about 5 days ago. Im not worried yet cause ive waited 2 weeks before to see mycelium, but this time around i was a little paranoid and sprayed the syringe with lysol spray before each innoculation. Is it possible that the lysol may have gotten inside the needle and killed the spores? I did wipe the syringe off each time before sticking it in the jar, so no lysol should have touched the substrate.

Did you flame the tip before each injection? That's what matters most.

Open cap.
Wipe needle with alcohol.
Flame needle til tip glows red.
Squeeze one or two drops to allow heated/dead spores to be removed.
Inject 1cc.
Wipe needle with alcohol & flame.
Inject 1cc, 3 more times (or how many holes you use in lid).
Wipe needle with alcohol.
Replace cap on needle til next jar is ready.

You shouldn't be putting the needle against any surfaces once the cap is opened.

Good luck.

Love & Light,

Bop

As far as I know, Lysol isn't a mutagen.
If it were, we probably wouldn't use it so readily around the house. It just kills stuff.

My guess would be it's in it's genes, but i'm no mycologyst

Actually Like bleach it has caused my fruits to mutate.

Thanks guys, no one really answered my question. A simple yes or no would have helped, once again should my shit be fine, its not contaminated i m pretty damn sure, i just want to know if the lysol could have killed the spores and waste a syringe of spores. Thanks thanks, i didnt know it would have been this hard of a question to answer.

Bop... those steps are way over doing it, but whatever floats your boat

Art... You will be fine, no worries. It is pretty hard to get anything inside a syringe without pulling the plunger back. Even if a minute amount did make it, it would be too diluted to do any harm.

i dont think a little lysol is potent enough to kill an entire syringe of spores, but if you sprayed the hell out of the syringe after every innoc and lysol got into the solution a bunch of times, i bet it could ruin your project. :shocked:
