    OK play sand users

    if i bought playsand would i mix Aquarium salt in with it?
    Or how do you keep it from molding?

    Do i need to bake it when i bring it home, before i put the tank back together?

    And when you say sand Castle like do you mean.... so it holds its form?


    for all info Thanks.

    sand doesnt mold- its only what is left in the sand that molds (like food) why bake it? What brand did you get? Does it say PLAYSAND on the label?
    why are you asking these questions - these are basic questions and you have been here awhile and its been talked about many many times - Im confused so sorry.

    For baking, rinse your sand out thoroughly and let it dry some (otherwise the baking takes FOREVER), then bake it for around half an hour (or until it's at your desired consistency if it takes longer) at 350F.
