Cleanliness
    #934448 - 10/05/02 02:05 PM (16 years, 1 month ago)

I admit it, my girlfriend does all the cleaning around here. For this little project however, I am on my own. I was gonna use 10% bleach to water in a spray bottle for the actual cleaning of everything, and lysol for the air. How clean do the jars, pressure cooker, and big bowl have to be? Will just washing them like any other dishes be OK? Maybe wash them twice for good measure? What does everyone use? Any good cleanliness FAQs out there? I'm a slob.

Thanks!

I'm sure plenty of people will reply with all kinds of sterility tips, but I personally think much of it is overkill.  I think that the only time you really have to worry is during innoculization.  Flame sterilize the needle between each jar and wear a bandana or dust mask so as not to breath on it.  Using some listerene helps too.  I have used bowls that have sat out for mixing substrate, and jars that I only rinsed out with water and sometimes dish soap and have had very few problems.  This is just my opinion. :grin:

Do you suggest a alcohol lamp? I want to use a regular BIC lighter but won't that turn the syringe all black? And if I wiped it off, wouldn't it defeat the purpose? I dunno, let me go do a experiment on a fork or something... Won't excessive heating like that kill the spores on their way out?

Yeah an alcohol lamp will help prevent the soot, but the soot is harmless and doesn't need to be wiped off. After you flame the needle, squirt out a few drops to cool it back off, or dip it in alcohol, which will air dry in less than ten seconds.

Thanks STS. My sig... Bad Boy Bill is a very commercial DJ. More club type scene there. If you recognize it from one of his CDs, then he has one of my favorite records  :laugh: The song, minus the kinda like shrooms part, is like 5 years old. You actually can't get it anymore, I can't find it at least. The person who it's by is on the tip of my tounge... ermm, sorry for rambling, I just lloooovee house music. Well I love all types of EDM, but house rocks my feet. Techno, and some types of trance and jungle get me movin too.

Peace!!
