the fuzz at the bottom is fine, dont spray em with anything, just wipe the dirt off em, but if they are on cakes, they probably dont even have anyway. look into buying some damprid from home depot to get them cracker dry...make a drying box with it, if you dont know what that is, just wait a sec.........

oops, i thought i had a link to the drying box thing..oh well. go buy a big tupper ware thing with a airtight lid from walmart (5$) and a carton of damprid (4$) from home depot, it's in the paint section, if you cant find it, ask someone (it looks like a milk carton.)
pour about a half inch of damprid in the tupperware thing
put a large single piece of newspaper over the top of the damprid, but dont let it touch it...hang it like a hammock over it, and then put a paper towel ontop of the newspaper
then put the guys on that and close that shit for about a week until they crack when you bend them
make sure when you close the top of the tupperware, some of the paper is hanging out so that the weight of your guys wont make the bunch fall on the damprid.(hence, large piece of newspaper). and of course, make sure it is tightly on there (air tight)

the reason for the paper towel is to make sure that none of the print comes off the newspaper, and on your guys.

hope this helps

oh yeah, one more thing, it is a good idea to air dry them a bit too before putting them in the damprid container, faster drying

Budro, this is what My friend uses as a Dessicant container.

www.cox-internet.com/awilson/dryer1.jpg

www.cox-internet.com/awilson/dryer2.jpg

put the dessicant into the smaller section, and put the shrooms into the larger section, close it up for about a half a day to a day after you have air dried them, and bam should be good to go. do like he said though, make sure they are cracker dry by breaking one in half or something.

I wanna cross The Rainbow Bridge, and see my fathers in The Golden Hall. They beckon me, to join their feast. In my dreams, I hear their call.
