I know that you can bake perlite after you use it to dry it out and kill all the bacteria ect, i know it needs to be baked for an hour but at what degrees? I think it's 400F but i just wanted to make sure, thankx.

P.s, i read i should put it in tin foil, good idea? bad? Thankx 4 ur help! :mushroom2:

are you trying to reuse the perlite?

if so i would not even bother, i am sure you could but it would be more trouble then needed.

if using for the first time then either just use water or if you would like then add a nice splash of h202.

there is no need to sterlize perlite out of the bag.

a whole buck for peroxide? ARe you kidding me? 30 cents a bottle.

And I do monthly upkeep and sanitize everything. Perlite can be nuked. Rinse out and then microwave for 15 min on high.
