    #1696654 - 07/08/03 04:40 PM (14 years, 21 days ago)

is it beneficial or harmful or irrelevant to dunk with water mixed with hydrogen peroxide? it would kill contams, but would it hurt the cake?

It may irritate the cake a little, but if you do it in a properly sane concentration it shouldn't cause real damage.

whenever I have dunked cakes before i have always used a solution of water and hydrogen peroxide and have never had any problems from it. the hydrogen peroxide only makes up 3% of the total solution

herbs are fun

My friend has never had a reason to dunk a cake in peroxide, but he routinely soaks colonized agar wedges and tissue samples in a 3% peroxide solution before transfering to new agar plates.

A peroxide dunk for your cakes should be fine.
