hypochlorite tratment (bleach bath)
    #4177800 - 05/15/05 12:40 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

since no one is answering in the mushroom cultivation forum, i try re-post this here...

i was reading stamets' GGMM and was surprised by this alternative method of straw treatment, it basically consists of soaking the straw in water+some bleach for 24 hors instead of the usual pasteurization method involving heat. it seems to me much simpler and more hassle-free than heat pasterurization, expecially for large quantities of straw. so my questions are basically three:

1) why is this method so rarely cited / used?
2) would it also apply for the tretment of straw + horsepoo?
3) would it also apply for the treatment of wood chips / dowels / sawdust ?

I used this method several times and the results were only 50/50. Heat pasteurization is much more reliable, imo.

For any one interested in a bleach statement :::

http://www.vdh.virginia.gov/news/PressReleases/2004/090804PreventionTips.asp

Excellent resorce for safe bleach dunking..

"If you cannot boil water, an alternative is to treat with chlorine by mixing six drops (1/8 teaspoon) of unscented, ordinary household chlorine bleach (5.25 percent sodium hypochlorite) per gallon of water. Mix the solution thoroughly, and let stand for about thirty minutes. You can also use water-purifying tablets from your local pharmacy or sporting goods store. Bleach treatment and water-purifying tablets will not kill parasitic organisms."
