reusing plastic petre dishes?
    #3809306 - 02/21/05 02:21 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Anyone know a way of sterilizing plastic petres without destroying them?
I'm all out right now and have a desperate need. H202 or alcohol perhaps?
How about boiling water?
I tried microwave but they just warped all up.

Nevermind...I went out and got some new ones today. Tried a few experiments and any kind of heat just toasts the plastic ones.
On a brighter note I did find some taller myco dishes that are 25 mm tall rather than the normal 15mm. I had to order them in but the supply was kind enough to give me a couple sleaves of regular plates to get me by for now. The 25mm tall ones should give those crazy edible species some room to move about.

An overnight soak in alcohol does the trick.

I can only budget myself for the overnight alcohol soak.
Soaking as we speak in fact.
