N95 gas masks
    #3774364 - 02/13/05 03:47 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I recently purchased an N95 type gas mask, the type used by mold-removal workers, chemical workers, etc. It specifically blocks against mold spores. I'm going to use it while inspecting my jars, I want to be as safe as possible to avoid possible sickness. When you come across a contaminated jar, I know the usual advice is to toss it, this is what I've been doing. However, it can be really tough to find Mason jars in Canada in the winter, I usually have to custom orde them which is a real pain. Do you think it would be ok to clean out the jars while wearing the mask? I was going to clean out the jars in the basement, dumping the contaminated rye in garbage bags for immediate disposal. Immediately after I would take a shower and wash the clothes I had been wearing.

if you really want to save the jar then...

1. use an old syringe and inject 50-100cc of 99% iso alc into the contamed jar and shake like hell

2. get a bowl of hot water, the hottest you can get from the tap and drop the jar into it for 5 mins (this encourges the iso to evap and the vapors kill as well as the liquid)

3. get a garbage bag and put youre arms and the jar into it, then proceed to open the jar and dump out the contents into the bag

4. reclose the jar still in the bag and remove it. tie the bag and place outside

5. wash the jar right away

the iso alc kills 95% of all contams and 100% of all spores, so the crap wont become airbourne or spread

hey mabye I should make a pictoral of this procedure and submit it as penlight's save the jar tek

You can also fill sink 3/4 full of hot soapy water & bleach solution, sink jar, hold down, twist lid slightly & let jar fill (Hint, have plenty of deep soapy bubbles on surface, to trap any spores that escape as, air bubbles out of jar.). Then tighten lid. Let jar stand a day, take outside, emtpy in trash can. Wash out, put in dishwasher & run it.

Dishwashers really help. never had a problem. Dishwashing detergent for the dish washer contains sodium hypochlorate (bleach)also the dry cycle gets very hot. Just take the jar outside to empty and rinse so you keep airborne particles to a minimal then throw into the dishwasher.
