I have a question because I'm in a bit of a dilemma.
I dropped a media bottle on the floor in the rest room (we have tile floors) and it shattered. Four days worth of good stuff is laying there in a puddle (it was prepared with a 20 micron filter and is close to medical grade), so I rolled up some cotton and sucked it up into a 3cc syringe. It still looks clean, and the floor is definitely clean, but its a floor, and its in a restroom, so obviously the potential for bacterial and viral contamination is there.
I was thinking about doing this:
Get a cup of water and dilute one or two drops of bleach in the water. Then, take one or two drops of that diluted bleach and put it into the syringe and let it sit over night to kill any viruses or bacteria etc. Then I would push it through a clean 20 micron filter for good measure back into a clean media bottle.
My only concern with this is whether or not that amount of bleach would actually kill anything and / or would that amount of bleach bring me any harm when I iv it?
I really would hate to toss the mix, but I would hate losing an arm more so.
