Dunking.. question :)
    #3073625 - 08/31/04 02:15 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I read in the growing FAQ that natural spring water is the best for dunking in. If this is so, I have a natural spring within 20 minutes of my house that everyone in the area gets drinking water from (because it tastes so much better than any other water I've ever tasted).

Would this be a good source of water for dunking, or would it maybe contain too many contaminants and endanger my cake?

Also, is it true that a full 24 hour dunk is the most beneficial? Or is the time it should be dunked be a bit longer/shorter for the best yield, in your experiences of course.

First of all let me just say I don't have any experience with outside water sources, but personally I would trust water from a spring before the shit that comes out of the tap where I live. :P  And tap water is what I use to dunk my cakes, though I also add a bit of peroxide.  If you're really concerned about contams I suppose you could boil it for 10 minutes, then let cool before using to dunk, just to get any possible nasties out.  :goodluck:

I use plain`ol tap water and just add a drop of h202. I wouldnt use water from a "spring", creek , whatever you wanna call it. I dunk my cakes over night before and after each flush. No probs yet with them drying out.

I rinse un the tap pulling of myc bits and pins prior to dunking then it's alway "clean" water for me (distilled).

I use tap with about 30% of a 3% H202 in it.
