Cool mist help
    #3561396 - 12/30/04 02:52 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

What could I put in the cool mist to keep it from getting that slimy mold that appears after a few uses. Iodine possibly? Small amount of bleach?

Something to keep from having to clean it every 4-5 uses.

H202 in a 10% solution but iodine can work too..you only need a few drops but I'm unsure of how much. Hyphae uses iodine in his humidifiers so he'd be the person to PM. Dont use bleach in anything that puts the liquid in it into the air.

They sell water conditioner at major chain-stores. Same area where humidifiers are kept. (Not sure how well it works, or what the contents are... Might just be peroxide and bleach.)

It would be better to only add enough water to the humidifyer... then replace it on a regular interval.

I use a toy called "Tropicaire Reptile humidifier & air exchanger", works great... I have it slightly modded to my use... but same general concept. (I also like it because I can drop a line inside each bag for growing... no containers to clean!)

Actually bleach can be used in very weak concentration (1:200) with little if any negetive effect what so ever but I do not recommend it only because of the dissipation of the chlorine after only 24hrs. so iodine which doesn't break down nearly as fast can definitely be the ticket, BTW 1-2 drops per gal. is all that is needed :wink: Here little is better more is not. 8oz. of h2o2 at each fill and a 8oz. addback in between can also work well but gets expensive real quick compared to iodine. Coolmists should also be taken apart and cleaned with bleach on a regular schedule for best results. GL
