Here’s some extra info to help you succeed:
Work with clean hands.
You don’t want to introduce extra bacteria in your baggie. They’ll love the moist and warm conditions too and will proliferate fast. If you notice a vinegary smell when you check on the inside of your baggie… it’s too late. You can better start over.
Keep it warm
The temperature is an important factor. Keep your baggie at around 25°C for the fastest results. Look for a spot in your house that’s consistently cozy & warm. Next to your furnace or hot water boiler is a good choice.
Don’t let it dry out
Peek inside the baggie from time to time, to check if the paper towel is still moist. If not, add a little water to keep things steamy in there.
It doesn’t really matter whether you keep the bag in the dark or in daylight. Heat and moisture are the 2 most important factors.
