Sterilizing non heat proof lids
    #3279765 - 10/26/04 04:04 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Hello,

Still on my 2 my first growth. I think I found a good jar, the container is microwave proof but the lid isnt.

I still want to use the lids. Can I clean them with alcohol?

Or should I just use aluminium foil and no lids?

Appreciating any advice....

MF

You could sterilize them with anti-bacterial handsoap or spray them with lysol and wipe very very well, or sterilize with alcohol and use them.

I don't see how it would hurt anything. Are you using the PF tek or what? If so the verm layer would protect against any lysol residue I'd imagine.

2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

Hi Silven

Yes I am using PF tek. So I will have a verm layer @ the top.

Then Id like to have it alufoil covered with screwlids as well, or is that an overkill?

Thanx 4 ur help.... I am so dependent! :grin:

Nope nope, I always keep atleast one layer of foil over my jar lids as an added fail-safe.  Just helps me put my mind at ease. :smile:

Good luck with your grow man :smile:

Ok my plan is still ok then!

Can I skip making holes in the lids? Since I inoculate with syringe through the holes in the alufoil!

Kind regards,
MF
