two layers of tinfoil worked really well for me, just lay a washcloth at the bottom of the pot, and put the jar on top of that, and fill the pot up halfway on the jar, and boil for 60 minutes.

I have had many failures until recently. Here is what I used and I had 100% success:

1. double coffee filters under the lid.
2. injection holes in lid filled with polyfil (I got this from the pet store; it comes in a role; it is white and is used for filter replacement in aquariums)
3. foil over the top of lid with a rubberband around the foil

After I steamed them and waited for them to cool I injected the substrate this way:

1. I prepared a paper towel soaked in 70% alcohol.
2. Upon removing the foil from each lid I took a spray bottle of 70% alcohol and saturated the polyfil in the wholes.
3. I then upcapped the syringe and injected the substrate.
4. When I was done injecting one jar I wrapped the needle in the alcohol saturated paper towel.
5. repeat steps 1 - 4 for the next jar.

The alcohol in the polyfil kills any contams that are on the needle when it goes into the hole and by wrapping the needle in between jars in the alcohol paper towel it kills anything on the needle between jars. I had 4 failures due to contams prior to trying this method. Good luck and I hope this helps.
