Emptying contamed jars?
    #3180289 - 09/25/04 09:41 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

    Any ideas for a, hmm, I suppose not necessarily "safe," but a more santitary way than just dumping them?  My last batch I took outside and opened and shook out inside a garbage bag.  Only problem was I'd have to open the bag to put in the next jar and open it, and when that was done, I got a nice big face full of Bacillus foulness.  Any help?  Thanks very much!  :grin:

those dust masks that they sell to protect you from latex particulates are good for that.

Or take an old syringe, some strong ass bleach solution, and empty enough into the jar to saturate it.

Wets it down, stops the spores spreading, and helps kill off some of it.


Kills the smell too, generally.

n/p, just make damn sure you're outside when emptying em.....keeps contaminants out of the grow area, and out of your lungs. Some contaminants are deadly.

I read a post where someone said to pressure cook them before emptying. Depending how many you have, this might be a long process. That will definetly kill any contams lurking in the jars.

all of them pose health risks in some way, black and green molds are a serious respiratory irritant, they can even land you in the hospital or render you dead if in high enough concentrations

yep. can be if you inhale enough spores. mold spores give me asthma attacks.

i just dump them out into the garbage can. i clean them out in the sink and let them soak in some bleachy solution overnight (basically 12 hours). then i take them back to the sink and re-use them.

if you're pressure cooking your contamed jars, that's alot of work for not that much help, IMHO.

PCing them is good though..its alot of work but it does help kill all that crap..if you just dump in the trash in your house I wouldnt expect to keep your jars clean for to long..I am strict about the stuff around my house..the spores stay..you want to know if they're there..leave a cup of coffee..some cooked noodles..some fruit juice.whatever out on your counter for a few days. Bet you get trich and probably more. Do you want your mushies in that kind of environment? I'll only dump outside..I should remember to wear a paint mask but I dont. I dont always PC either, I get lazy and am PCing enough. Always the jars get dumped outside though and put into a tub of bleach water outside then brought in and soaked then cleaned by hand then ran through dishwasher. I spray myself with lysol before comming back in and get a shower and dirty clothes go into a bag and set out to be taken to washed. Minimizes mold and I hardly ever end up with contams except when they come in from bad syringes (my only real spout with contams started here).

yep. i take a garbage bag outside and dump them in there, then throw in the garbage.

i don't handle my grow unless it's after a shower and i've put hand sanitizer liberally on my hands and forearms. i also wear a dust mask to catch some of the germs coming out of my mouth. i wear a clean ballcap to hold my hair out of the way because i have hair that's about 7 inches long all over my head (i need a haircut, my hair's so shaggy and messy).

i've left juice out on the counter for days before, and it didn't get moldy for some reason. i'm a neat freak when it comes to my house now... i vaccum(sp?) at least twice a week, dust after i vaccum, mop and sweep alot. *sigh*

mushrooms turn you into a neat freak out of neccessity. weird, huh?

I hear that...when I was smaller I never cleaned..when I finally moved out of the room and cleaned everything up I found molds growing under my bed from not being clean (I was also iin a basment) but these days..not so long after you won't catch me being lazy when it comes to cleanliness...

No Shit. I pulled up my carpet and put tile back,sprayed my ceiling and walls with 5% bleach/95% water. At 30 days my test jars have not grown any contam's.My place did smell like bleach for a few days.

Good Luck

I have a theory, Being as my flat is an absolute dump full of all manner of superbug, and the only precaution I took was spraying some dettol about the work surface.. all my cakes are going like clockwork, the only contam being in the 'control' I made without any sterilising at all (just so I know what to smell for if things go bad :laugh:). I reckon maybe all you in the states have it tougher cause of higher atmospheric temperatures and lower humidity.

Just a thought tho.  :twirlyface:

Or perhaps it has to do with the PF Tek having more precautions then rye jars? The dry verm layer and no endospores contained in it in particular. Try doing some rye and do some grain to grain transfers, some agar work, do a few casings..then let us know how the contams over there are.
