I'd get a confirm from other ppl before you try this, but I'd mist it with Water + 5% h202

You could try what myco junkie suggests. I dont know if you did but when spawning straw to a tub, you need to put the plastic wrap DIRECTLY on the surface of the straw. Also putting on a light diffuser from Home Depot or some such to press it down (with some bricks) without blocking the holes in the plastic wrap to breathe. An air pocket above the straw will cause it to dry out.
