Grain tek/endospores related Q
    #2843650 - 06/30/04 03:14 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

On related matters to my last post, I soaked my rye in water on the shelves of a cupboard I have, the cupboard has doors. Now, I was thinking about taking out the shelf in this cupboard and putting my incubation chamber and terrarium in there, as it's the perfect fit and closed off, etc.
But, I'm worried now that some of the nasties might have migrated out of the containers I soaked the rye in onto the surface of the shelves/insides of the cupboard. Specifically, I'm worried that endospores, but I'm sure there could have been plenty of microscopic spoilers on the grain, or just hanging out in the cupboard. Could I just clean this really well, lysol it, and it would be all right? Or, should I forget this spot and move it somewhere else.
My incubation chamber and terrarium will both be rubbermaid, if that impacts this problem at all.
Thanks to any who can help!

Did the shelving get wet or anything when the previous stuff was in there?  Does the shelving area have contact paper or something other than wood?

For complete overkill:
1.  Hit the area twice, letting it sit wet for ~10 minutes and wiping well. 
2.  Lysol the outsides of the rubbermaid/s as you're putting them inside.
3.  Make sure you get all of the inner surfaces of the cupboard.

A single sloppy lysol wipe will likely work, too :wink:  It doesn't sound like anything was overly exposed in there. . .

    Yeah, no, there was no spillage--I don't think so, at least.  And yeah, it's just straight wood.  I guess I was a little worried that the humidity would carry endospores from the rye out of the water and they would settle on the inside of the cupboard.  Perhaps I'm just really freakin' paranoid  :eek:
      I was thinking that your approach would probably be fine.  In fact, I don't think it should take more than a single good dusting of lysol.  Just wondering if anyone had experience with a situation like this. 
      Thanks for the help!
