    After flattening, I' have heard some use a tiny tiny bit of bleach in the water. Did I mention it was a tiny bit?

    A moldy thing? lol

    +1 on the bit of bleach...I've heard of places putting a cap full in the soft serve machine as a mold inhibiter...

    Happened to me once, someone put my chinese 1k stone into drawer while it was still wet. Flattened it and had no problems since.

    I permasoak my WA stones and JNS 1k's in bleach water to no ill effect. The one time I had a stone with mold on it, I lapped it clean and placed it in bleach water, and have since had no problems. But, as was mentioned earlier, it should be a tiny tiny amount of bleach added to several liters of water. I use 1 cap full to 6 liters.

    Disclaimer: I only use this on my permasoak stones (ie. my bevel setters).

    Is there a good way to determine which stones are suitable for permasoaking?
