Can you use alcohol swabs to sterilise your equipment?
    #3602922 - 01/09/05 12:04 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Can you use those alcohol swabs (sterets) you get in needle exchanges that are used to clean injection sites to sterilise your equipment when cultivating mushrooms? I'm trying to cultivate cubensis mushrooms using the PF technique and was wondering whether it would harm or halt the growth of the mushrooms if some of the alcohol failed to evaporate? Or is that unlikely?

You should give a better description about what your problem.
How are you growing ?
At which stage of growth ?
What tek did you use ?
Cakes or casings ?

I will be growing cubensis mushrooms using the PF TEK technique; I haven't started yet. I was wondering whether I can clean things like the canning jars and mixing spoon with alcohol swabs?

Yeah, that should work fine, it should even work on your needles when innocing, just wipe and give it a minute to evap, then your good to go. GL on it.
