Re: sterilizing FF culture cups
Thanks for the write up!
I wash with soap and water, then sanitize in bleach water (1t/gal, same as I use to sanitize all the bowls in my rep room). Soap and water and bleach whiten the fabric lids fine. After drying, the cups, lids and excelsior get stored in the freezer until needed, and the media gets stored in the fridge.
I've not had good results with mite paper. I use a pan with a layer of DE, and put the cups on it.
I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and self-contain'd.
