boil it in water for five mins, suck up some boilding water and squirt it into the sink a few times

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

Be really really careful, syringes tend to melt very easily in the microwave, IME.

When using the Microwave to boil water, be carefull when you insert the needle into it. It will boil violently as soon as you insert it. I have had the water actually explode over the top of the glass I was using. So be extra carefull.

Just don't want to see anyone get burned.

But, the Microwave works just fine.

I suck bleach into my syringe, let it sit until my water starts to boil. when the water boils I shoot the bleach out and suck the water up three times(while it is boiling) to make sure the bleach is gone. Use the fourth syringe full of water. I always use this method and never had a bad syringe. I did this because at first I was scared to pc my syringes. HEHE :nut:

The way I do it is put a glass of water in the microwave and then get the syringe(s) and pull 1cc tap water in and 9cc's of air then set them on a paper towel in the microwave turn the microwave on high and once the glass of water starts boiling I let it boil for 1 min then take it all out and push all the water out of the syringe's and pull more of the boiled water in and squirt it in the sink, then fill them up again and there you have sterile syringes and water. Worked every time for me.

You don't need a microwave, just follow the first portion of Sporeworks' syringe tek.

1. Fill your cooking pot halfway with tap or distilled water (use distilled water if your tap water contains higher levels of minerals and chemicals).

2. Boil the water in the pot on high for a minimum of ten minutes, this should be adequate to sterilize and cleans the water of all bacteria, viruses, and mold spores.

3. Take your empty syringe and fill it with the boiling water. Allow it to sit for two minutes with the hot water inside. (If your syringe was sterility packaged, skip steps 4 and 5).

4. Purge the hot water from the syringe into a sink, not back into the saucepan.

5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 two more times. Upon the second time leave the hot water in the syringe.

6. Place the syringe in a cool draft-free place, preferable in a clean zip-lock bag

7. Allow it to cool for several hours before proceeding to Procedure Two.

Maybe it's a curse having nurses in the family but where would you get a syringe not sterile?

You won't be able to use those. Too fine a gauge (27) and too short.

A lot reuse their syringes by re-sterilizing them instead of throwing it away and using a new one.
