GOELITE .......Soak in soapy water & disinfectant for a day or 3. Hose out & rinse about 5 times.

I personally boil it covered for 2hrs. I bring it to a rapid boil then cover and turn the temp down to the low setting. It works great also at getting rid (breaks down) of root matter :wink: I use a large soup/stew pot BTW :laugh:

AFOAF put his in a smaller tub and filled with water and about 4 or 5 glugs of bleach, he also placed a towel on the surface to keep the geolite from floating. Then he scoop it out with a strainer, put it back in the pmp, and let the whole thing airdry outside for about 2 days.
