can you use the white medical tape instead of regular masking tape?

If it has sufficient adhesive I don't see why not. It shouldn't melt in a PC or anything.

what are you taping?
if you are using it over the holes in the lids of your jars, then yes use that instead of the masking tape. the med tapes should allow your jars to breath, whereas the masking tape will seal it up.

theres at least 4 different kinds of medical tape that i can think of right off the top of my head. some will allow it to "breath" some wont. so basically unless you know what kind it is then its not wise to use it. you want one that doesnt "breath" during pc and you want one that does durring colonization. so unless you have both types then dont use it for both. if you have the type that seals all the way then use it during pcing and take it off (which makes this just like masking tape and/or tin foil).

why one that doesn't breath during pc'ing?

yeah definitely want the micropore tape for colonization. you can put the tape on the holes and then add the tinfoil and pc. the tape will hold up to the pc temp.

yeah i was saying that without even giving the thought of just putting tinfoil over it. my way of thinking was if it has the pores then water can get into it. but eyah just throw tinfoil over it if you go that route
