Methylated spirit for sterilizing?
    #4641098 - 09/10/05 09:30 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

To sterilize spore print material (i.e foil) would an alcohol lamp containing methylated spirit do the job? Iam still a little unsure about using meth-spirit as I've heard it contains petroleum distillates which I think might contaminate. Can anyone clear this issue up?

methylated is the same as denatured, yes? if it is then dont use it, that stuff is intentionally poisoned. It could leave residues that will enter the mycelium if it doesnt contam. just use iso alcohol

I often come to many challenges and intimidations, but then I remember that you only live life once, one single time through, with no reruns or rehearsals. So just live the way you want and the best you can. Its easy.
