Bake or Microwave Vermiculite
    #3308748 - 11/02/04 01:01 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Which would be better to avoid contams? To bake for 30 minutes? or microwave on high for 10? Common sense tells me baking would be better, but I'd like some input from other people.

I've dunked a couple jars and I'm going to let them sit for 12 hours.

I like that method. It had a couple things I didn't think to do. I'll incorporate that into my method.

Microwave for 10 mins on high?
I wonder if 5 would work.
