Acetone = nail polish remover

Do you still think it's a good idea to add an organic solvent to something that you are going to ingest?

papa smurf,
Acetone? Was just wondering. Have never seen or head this mentioned before. Would be concerned as to working with poisonous chemical. Any specific references?
Curious.

I have tried this a few times. It does appear to help keep casing contamination from happening, especially with species that are prone to contamination like pans. It isn't a total cure though, just a help. Here is a link to a post I made a few months ago with details of stuff I tried.

Doktor Dung,
Thanks for the info and link back, but still bothered by use of acetone. Where or when did you get the idea of using this? Am interested, but a little iffy on safety. Any futher info?
Thanks!

It's in Stamets book tmc in the chapter where he discusses casing. Evidently acetone is beneficial to microorganisms which are beneficial to pinning mushrooms. I think the small amount used would be utilized by the bacteria and pose no threat at all to the mushroom consumer.
