    Okay, this is not at all my ideas, these ideas are all over the place, and common practice. But I'm writing this to help new comers have something to reference on how to use a still air box (SAB).

    First, choose a room to work in. DON'T use your kitchen or your bathroom. Those are the two dirtiest rooms in your house. A small linen closet or something with table of some sort in it, that can be easily closed off would be ideal. I don't have anything like that in my small house, so I use my bedroom. I have had no issues with contamination as of yet using that room, so I'm happy with it.

    Once you have chosen your room, you can set up. A hard surface is ideal, just for stability, but I use my bed. You want to soak a towel, then twist out all of the excess water that you can. Lay this flat on your surface.

    Now you will have to set up something to elevate your agar,cakes, or whatever you ate working with off of the towel. I use the rack from my PC on extra rings from my jars.

    At this point put the box in place and spray the whole room and inside the box with Lysol.
    Tip: Make sure any windows are closed, and there are no fans or air running. Start in the corner opposite the door, aiming at the ceiling, spray in a sweeping motion as you work your way back toward the door. Close the door, and let it settle for 10 to 15 minutes. *THIS IS IMPORTANT! YOU COULD BLOW YOURSELF UP!

    While you are letting the room settle, go take a shower you dirty hippy.

    After you shower, rinse with mouth wash.

    At this point, you can go in and get to work!

    But when you use cleaner there is 99.99% term killing and you miss that 0.01 then that multiplies in seconds which thus will recontimate the bathroom same with the kitchen I don't know whoever thought of that where do you put all the groceries that you bring home from the grocery store? Kitchen. And grocery store are trich hot spots. You can argue whatever you want but facts are facts

    And you just started February? You got a lot to learn friend. And im not claiming to know everything I could definitely learn more too. But that's just common sense your kitchen and bathroom are dirtiest places in your house science proves it. My opinions are normally backed up by hard evidence and facts.

    Every single point is about either bathroom, kitchen or living room type area don't believe me throw a petri dish in your bathroom and kitchen for 1 hr and then seal em up and see what grows. I bet it will look like an alien in 2 days

    Here is an article by the national science foundation telling you all about it. Can't argue with science. But you might try anyway

    My bathroom is clean too but would I let a doctor see me in there or get surgery? Basically the same thing you want it as contam free as possible. SAB doesn't solve everyone's problems you ever heard of the vacuum effect you make when put hands in and out? Air moves bringing in spores and trich or if your in your bathroom who knows what kind of bac. you will have. Yes some people do it with success in bathroom and good for you who do. Me personally I live in an old house and my bathroom has mold that has come back before. Maybe your house was built last year idfk. Your just arguing cause you think you got a good point when I've only just been proving you unknowledgable about contams and possible risks you can face when doing lab work.
