Soil Sanitizing

Soil Sanitizing:

When recycling used soil from old planters or elsewhere, it's a good idea to sanitize your soil to remove possible pathogens. However, once your soil is "Sanitized" it will actually be dirt. You may need to add amendments, microbes, to bring your soil situation back to a living growing environment again. 

What you will need:

A Large container for your Mixture
A garden trowel/hand shovel to mix with
Baking dishes
An oven

How to:

Preheat oven to 200
Place dirt in 5 gallon bucket.
Mix with garden trowel/hand shovel. Take out any unwanted matter. 
Place dirt in baking dishes.
Place baking dishes in oven for at least a half hour. 
Remove dirt and let cool before mixing with soil enhancers.


All DIY projects shown on are purely "at your own risk". As with any DIY project, unfamiliarity with the tools and process can be dangerous. Posts should be construed as theoretical advice only. 
If you are at all uncomfortable or inexperienced working on these projects (especially but not limited to electronics and mechanical), please reconsider doing the job yourself. It is very possible on any DIY project to damage your cottage, void your property insurance, create a hazardous condition or harm or even kill yourself or others.
