Definitely not sterile out of the bottle. To purchase sterile water, you need to go through a pharmacy and get right stuff. But save your money...for any application in this hobby, a full boil at 10-15 minutes will sterilize plain old city/well/tap water just fine.

Besides, if you're using it for PF cakes, your going to boil them anyway. Reply meant for CaptainKirk

Distilled water is water that has been boiled and then recondensed (that is, the water vapor is turned back into liquid water on a cold surface).

People distill water in order to purify it.
Dissolved contaminants like salts are left behind in the boiling pot as the water vapor rises away.
It might not work if the contaminants also boil and recondense.
Plus, you have to be careful not to re-contaminate the water after distilling it.

I wouldn't trust store bought distilled water.

I pressure cook all my water for mycology.

boil the distilled water, nowdays a lot of people are putting under sink reverse osmosis systems for there drinking water, it will strip regular
water from 400 PPM, of TDS, to about 40 PPM, of TDS, but even that
needs to boil.

Someone reported getting syringes + needles at a Walmart pharmacy just recently. Capatalism is amazing, it looks like spores are the only thing you can't get there.

For the most part, wal mart employees are lazy and apathetic so anything is possible.

I imagine it would be easy to talk them out a some syringes and needles.


I'm a carpet/vinyl installer, and i need the needle to suck are bubbles out of vinyl floors should work.
