what is fanning exactly? would taking a mag and waving it over the chambler be considered fanning or are we talking 15-20 minutes of steady fanning here, i.e. small desk fan?

3-5 per day would be fine.

Daywalker: A fanning is basically just taking the top of the container and "fanning" the open chamber a few times to circulate a whole new batch of fresh air...takes 5 seconds :smile:

A magazine would work, but I'd shake it off first. I fan once a day and that's enough -- two each their own.

Micro, yeah, I was using that as an example to mimic the act, but I do wonder about the cleanliness of doing it with a mag. would gas exchange holes filled with polyfil and an indirect oscillating fan going all day provide enough exchange? ..on second thought, too much air flow?

That's why I said shake it off -- get rid of all the crap that settled on the magazine. I usually use an envelope or something without pages, though.

I don't know about air exchange -- I've always just fanned and misted once a day and had great results.
