Possible calcium in syringe??????
    #2710555 - 05/21/04 12:14 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I recently sterilized 5 12cc 16guage syringes using boiling water. After filling and squirting out the water 3 times I left them to cool off. Now when I checked them they have white stuff in them. I am assuming this is calcium because my water is hard as hell.

Anyone ever had this problem before?

Would they still be o.k. to use once I have made my prints?

And if I microwave instead of boil the water would it keep the calcium from extracting from the water?

Thanks!!!!!! :laugh:

I dont think mineral deposits should slow any growth down, but it may eventually clog the syringe. Next time try boiling distilled water instead.

soak them in vinegar for a few minutes before you sterilize them next time, this will remove the chalky buildup

O.k. thanks guys.

Anyone else think the deposits will damage or kill spores?
