    How do you create the sterile working environment?
    I used a plastic tub with 2 arm holes cut in the lid, and flipped it on its side. Then I sprayed all over the inside with a 50/50 bleach water solution and waited 5 minutes, then repeated. I had a towel soaked in the bleach solution inside and I wiped all of my flasks before opening them.
