I've had trouble with using plastics in the microwave.  What's going to happen is it will constrict and lose it's original shape.  What I do now is take one of my 1/2 pint jars, fill it up with water/Karo mix, add microwaveable saran wrap, nuke 5 mins, remove from microwave, place lid on top of the jar....after it cools, I shoot it up with spores, tighten the lid with the saran wrap underneath, tape up the holes, and then place into the incubator....VIOLA!! :smile:

Sounds good!! The reason you need to have holes in the jar is so you can stick your needle in there when it gets myc growth (white clouds). SO, when you get it out of the microwave, leave the saran wrap on securely, place the lid on and let it cool. Once it's cool enough (I put my in the freezer for a little while), take off the lid leaving the saran wrap on, shoot it up, then place the lid back on over the saran wrap. Throw into the incubator and in a few days or so you'll see some growth.

I actually put a rubber band to secure the saran wrap...that works well

OH...lol...well, try this!! I forgot to mention, poke a few holes in the sarran wrap so it will be able to breath in the microwave.

what kind of water are you using, if you are using distilled water it will explode when heated to boiling if there are any impurities in the water

I hear the song of the cricket
And locusts and frogs
And I wonder,
Is this the life of a Mushroom

I'm sure you'll be fine. Just keep trying it if you feel you've got contamination, but I'm sure you are fine. If you want to be extra careful, do it again except this time clean out your microwave with disinfectant and also spray the air with lysol.
