Powder scoopers and sanitation?
I know this is a no-brainer topic/question. But when using kratom often or on a daily basis, is it required that the powder scooper(s) you use to scoop the kratom out from the package kept totally clean and free of any powder-builup that can happen from just putting it away instead of washing/rinsing it?
What happens if you keep a scooper, or spoon, etc., in a clean safe place but do not wash or rinse it for a couple weeks, so it just has some "hardened" green powder on it?
Can this be harmful or dangerous? Is a layer of kratom powder, on a scooper, not supposed to be exposed to air (room temp) for a certain amount of time? Is there a risk of bacteria or anything? And what is the likelihood of this causing a reaction or health issue? What kind of issue/infection/etc, if any, can this cause?
Hm. I have scoops in my ground coffee, my turmeric powder, I just scoop and leave them in the jar. Scoops gets washed when I wash out the jars.
But with kratom I use my scoop and wash- I do not store it in the bags or jars because for kratom I squeeze out the air from the bags and the jars are too little. My kratom scoops get washed after each use. They have to be completely dry before using it again. I think the powder crust would just be stale, if dry no bacteria really lives long. I would worry about the oils and dirt from your hands touching the scoop handle. Not sure if that answered your concern.
I’ll admit something , I rarely wash my scoopers 😅... but can only see benefit in keeping them nice and clean . After almost 4 years of daily kratom consumption, I haven’t noticed any issue (personally ) but I’d say always good to keep your leaf utensils clean ..... maybe ilk start a new habit of cleaning them lol. Great question btw , and thank you Nan for your input .... makes me question my scooper protocol 😎 @nan70, really nice to “see” you back ❤️

I’m guilty as charged. I’ve only washed my scoops twice that I can recall. Ever.
I don’t keep them in with the product. They are chip-clipped to the rotation box edge. The buildup last time was pretty bad. I didn’t try to use it, just washed it off.
I have a zillion OCD routines, but the scoops are not one of my issues.
So far, I have not had problems relating to my scoopers.
Have a wee bit better day!
@fastkawi1 Three plus years with the same measuring teaspoon that has only been explicitly washed or fingernail-scraped a few times in all that period. I use the same spoon to stir my kratom/turmeric/pepper in hot tap water, then rinse and drink twice more, then I dry the spoon. With all that, the spoon stays pretty clean. No problems so far. Would be surprised if there is any danger of a negative consequence.
