EEEK i might have messed up...
    #3231137 - 10/08/04 12:37 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I cut up some straw and did the regular straw/poo/verm mix but i dumped water from my spray bottle that had a bleach/peroxide mixture in it....
It foamed a bit from the peroxide but i went ahead and stuck it in the old oven to pasturize anyway.
What im worried about is if i killed to many bacteria by doing it this way....Usually i just use boiled water and it allways turns out very good...
any help is appreciated :crazy:

I hope so ...i need to bag up some of this horsey poo i get and sell it to you guys for $1 a bag + postage...its not that heavy even in a big feed bag...
I havent ever had any problems with any contams from the straw or poo i get there and there is a small mountain of it...
They pay to have it hauled off at least every 2-3 months and its perfectly composted :cool:

Well fizzing isn't bacteria being killed, its the bacteria producing an enzyme and breaking the peroxide down. It would take a lot to kill living bacteria (if they couldn't produce the enzyme quickly enough).

I don't know what bleach would do however. I guess if it was a small amount in comparision to the whole thing (probably if in a spray bottle?) then a little chlorine wouldnt do so much, theres a little in tap water anway.

IMO you should be ok though!
