Cold water immersion straw preparation method

Haven't ever heard _anything_ about this tek!

Has anyone tried it?

(at the bottom)

What about just dunking the straw in a lot of lime for 2 hrs?

I never had any luck with the lime method or the bleach method. Always green mold.
Plain ol hot water pasteurization hardly ever failed.

EDIT:: Though I did use to soak my straw in a very weak bleach solution for 4 hours cause I always steam pasteurized.

I've heard about it. I've heard of lots of variations. Sometimes they work. So does just soaking straw right off the bail...SOMETIMES. I've seen alot of people fail though doing it both ways. So I guess the question is, how bad do you want to try it and how much do you care if you fail?

I know your looking for alternatives to preping straw, I personally have a hidden grow op from all of my house guests and an apartment so security and speed are larges factors for me too and until recently getting advice from agar to go about it the way I described in your other thread I stayed away from straw for those reasons. I really think for just straw and no poo, hot water on top of a heat source (be it stove, burner or hot plate) is the way to go.
