Question about steralizeing the needle.
    #2639172 - 05/05/04 12:29 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Since my last try ended up like this I need to ask some more questions. :blush:

Last time I did it I took a little cup and flipped it upside down and poured a little alcohol on there and lit it.  I heated up the needle between every jar til it was red hot but the needle blackened.  Can it still be black and be sterile??  I thought cig lighters made it black but alcohol wasn't.

Always wipe it down with alcohol(after it cools)after you flame it.
Heating it up kills everything inside that needle and out-but when it cools down and you get ready to put it in your jar it could get contamed at this point you need to wipe it clean with alcohol(the inside is clean due to flameing).

Hope that helps
