Epsom salts
    #922851 - 10/01/02 03:51 PM (15 years, 23 days ago)

I plan to use epsom salts to dry shroomies but how do I prepare it? Do I bake it for an hour at 400* in the oven or do I nuke it? If I was right with my first assumption can I use a microwave instead?

Thanks everyone!

Microwaving does work, but since microwaves vary greatly, there is no way to tell how long to nuke it in yours specifically. It would also depend on how much you nuke at once, shape of the container, etc. But in the end, as long as it looks more pure white and powdery than semi-transparent crystals, it should work.

ShroomBoarder, you basically have to dehydrate it (in the oven or microwaving as seen in this post) and then use it as a dessicant in a drying chamber.  Do a search for "drying chamber" or "dessicant chamber" if you need more info on that. :grin:

I find a good microwave on high for 30 min will take the moisture out of the epsom satls.
One thing to remember is that epsom salts once saturated will need to be microwaved again.
In my case this tends to happen with each flush.

30 mins in the microwave! thats a long time for the microwave to be on. Don thy radiation gear Boris the world is going to end!

Seriously, if you have to nuke it for 30 mins then the whole concept of why you use a microwave (ie fast cooking) kind of goes out of the window.

Who doesn't have an oven?

I baked some yesterday for about 45+ mins and when I took it out it was hard as fuck. I had to break it all up again and put the pieces in the oven again for 45+mins, and stired a couple of times. I think next time I bake epsom salt I will stir it every 5 or 10 minutes so it doesnt get so hard.
