perlite sterilazation
    #4562323 - 08/21/05 01:14 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Here's my problem, yesterday I removed the last of my cakes from my fc and was planning on putting my first casing in the fc in a couple of days but I noticed a patch of green mold on one of the cakes. So now I have to remove the perlite and wash down the tub with a 10% bleach solution to rid myself of most of the green mold spores. Is there a way sterilize perlite? Or should I just toss it and start fresh?

Thanks for your guidance,

it is cheap enough where i would just toss it and use new. i guess you could soak it in a bleach solution as well and then toss it in the oven @ 350 for an hour or so. then just resoak to wet it up, drain it off and reapply.
