Tyvek?!? Gotta b sumthin else!
    #4359643 - 07/01/05 03:06 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I'm no where near a Ups or what ever place where all of theses cats are catching free tyvek. My question is does any one know of another material that works just as good if not better, that i could find at a hard ware store?

you can have the US post office deliver tyvek envelopes right to your door.

or you can buy tyvek in a home improvement store...its used as a vapor barrier for walls.

or you could use polyfil.

I ordered 50 of them from there (free of charge, no shipping, no nothing) and they arrived 3-4 weeks later in my mailbox, no questions asked... They even wrapped them in a giant tyvek envelope :P  It was surprising, I didn't think they'd really come lol.  Cuz yah, I can't get tyvek around where I live either.  Hope that helps! :smile:

EDIT:
OH, and while those are coming, yes there is a substitute you can use from a hardware store... I got these from Lowes Hardware:


They are vacuum bags, I forget how much they were, something like 12 bucks for 2 big ol bags.  I just cut them in half, laid them out, and started cutting squares.  Be sure to get the one that is "FINE" Filtered.  They work just fine and is what I used for my first batch of 18 jars, none of which got contam'd.  They are messy though, when I took the lids off the caps had yellow stains :p Oh and when you place them on your jar... go this way:

Jar -> Filter (yellow up) -> Disc thing -> Screw on ring
And it would be worth your time to get some Permatex Silicone Sealing Gel (also found at Lowes or anywhere really) and sealing up one of your innoc holes... Basically you have 2 or 3 holes on your lid, put the gel over one of them... That way when you inoculate with a syringe, the hole is re-sealed :smile:

Good luck!

if you go to the ups/fedex drop box's, they will usualy have supplies in them, should have the tyvek.... should... but yea, order thru usps, or go to wal-mart and pick up some polyfil for $3 (its in the craft section, the size of a pillow)
