sterilization technique???
    #2541439 - 04/09/04 12:08 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

i have a gallon of Methanol, i was just wondering, if spraying all my utinsils and stuff like that, and letting the methonal evaporate would leave them germ free?... the methanol is 100% meth, so ... its blue, and i was also wondering about my casing soils, and brf techs... if spraying it and lettin it evaporate would kill germs? or just make my stuff have meth all over it lol' thanx

isn't methanol poisonous, makes you go blind ? but it evaporates completely?

probably worth a try but, would it be cost effective to sterilize any bulk with methanol?

Use isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol. Can be had from pharmacies for cheap.

Methanol is harder to come by. Save it for better things (extraction, etc), although you probably shouldn't blue stuff for anything, see below. Don't drink it, it will make you go blind and possibly kill you. (I know you probably already know this but it can never be said enough.)

Also, Methanol is NOT blue. It is colorless, like water or vodka...again be careful. I'm guessing you have windshield washer fluid. I think that has even more crap than just blue dye; there's better sources for methanol. Think about another part of your car...the gas-line.

Be smart, Have fun.

alcohol dip and dry for sterilizing?

You don't want to use alcohol in your substrate mixes. Even if you were to let it evaporate. You couldn't let it evaporate in a sealed container to prevent further contaminants from invading, and you would still need to be sure it was fully evaporated.
