Cleaning Your Grow Materials
    #4695886 - 09/22/05 05:45 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

After your grow is complete and your cakes are spent after 1000 flushes :P what do you clean your various equipment with? wipe it down with alcohol? I bought a bunch of 91% alcohol for the jars and syringe and such. Should all ur materials be cleaned and with what? Thanks

Best thing to do is soak your jars in a bleach solution. Throw your mason jar lids away and buy new ones (they're cheap... like maybe $3 for twelve at agway).
I soak my jars right after they're done being used.
I think it's overkill to wipe with alcohol before filling with substrate. Alcohol can cause mutations, plus it's not necessary since you're gonna PC them anyway.
Some people will tell you to toss syringes after one use, but i'll use mine like 3 or four times. I just fill them with water and boil them for about 30-45 mins before use.
Hope this helps!
Good luck.

so in between a 1:10 - 1:20 mixture of bleach:water? and we are talking regular house hold bleach? How long do u soak them and afterwards do you just rinse with distilled water?

Yeah bro. Household bleach. Make sure it's chlorinated. Rinse with tap water, you'll be PCing before inoculating again anyway.
Good luck.

i may be doing over kill... but sometimes there are contams involved.
jars are emptied. soaked in bleach. rinsed. put in the dishwasher with bleach and dishwashing soap. dishwasher is set to the nonenergy efficient setting because it uses the heat to dry em and the hottest water possible. seems to work well.
