germination of seed in jiffy

Hello everyone

for the first time i decided to germinate using jiffy

now the seller told me use a sprayer i tried my best to clean the bottle of window cleaner

but now i checked at the morning nothing seems to be changed but smell of the  chemicals should

i quickly get the seeds out and place just in wet towel or they will be fine?

      • yeah bro but the thing is it sold with sort of dome and the seller told me like its a waste to buy a sprayer just clean other product spayer so did that for like 15 min i washed with cold water a sprayer and then i sprayed the dome with water inside it didnt do bubbles but it smelled like that window clean liquid can it kill the seedlings should i run quickly and put them in paper towel instant idk how seeds will react to those chemicals..

            • hey brotha! good to see ya! window cleaner is mostly ammonia so its high in pH. get a clean spray bottle at walmart or home depot just for misting your plants. when i use a dome i mist all the plants down, then the top inside of the dome and keep it closed. you want that humidity!!

                • Saving $2 on a spray bottle and risking a $10 seed is not frugal. Go to the Dollar Store, Walmart, Lowes, etc and buy a couple of spray bottles.
