What's better, a lighter or nothing for sterilzing syringes?

original topic was about lids up or down on PF jars. Answered. :thumbup:

they said to do it in the  pf tek for simple minds but all of the pics i've seen of jars have the rubber down.

what's the best way? i just got my spores(thank you hawk!) and i want to do this right.

Leave them alone, they'll work either way. I use lids with the rubber side up exclusively because they're so much easier to get off that way. Your holes in the lid will provide air exchange and the air will take the path of least resistance which is through the holes. It matters little with pf jars anyway because the verm barrier is your filter. Whether the air exchanges through the holes or through the gap around the lid matters little. Good luck!

You only need to flame a needle once in its life (can be done with a regular lighter)...other then that, just swab with alcohol. If theres anything on the needle, that will kill it, if theres anything IN the needle, then its probably going to be in the syringe anyway. I've started only flaming the needle once when I recieve the syringe and its worked fine more me.
