sterile water?
    #2290092 - 01/31/04 07:01 PM (13 years, 25 days ago)

Can large amounts of sterile water be purchased to be used for misting? Is bottled water sterile? My ex wife just boils hers all the time but it is a pain in her ass. Also, how important is it that this stuff is sterile? Also, how much h202 do yu guys put in?
Thanks

I spray with distilled water, no H202 added, and it works well.

Lately I've just been boiling tap water. seems to work as well as the distilled and costs much less. .50 - .99 /gallon adds up quicker than you'd think.

Stay away from tap water.  There's lots of chlorine and flouride in tap water which can result in stunted mycelia growth. 

Use distilled or spring water :smile:
