you could try a 3% bleach solution, flush it out well after the soak

i've read somewhere you can throw it all on a tray/baking sheet and cook for a while in the oven at 375, maybe like 30-45 min. or so

dont think so it comes pretty clean, but better safe then sorry.

I PC-ed my geolite before I used it in my PMP. But since then (3 months?) never cleaned it.... :wink:

It says sterile on the bag, but I wouldn't put too much faith in that. I'd either oven bag it or PC.

I've only used bleach, always excellent results and I can do almost 5 gals. at a time. I drain and rinse in a pillowcase then let it hang and forget it. This is what I'd recommend also :wink:

Perlite can humidify casings just as well as cakes...I dont know why you were told to remove it and mist...if thats your humidity source though you should leave it.
