Been learning a lot from the forum.
My FOAF is on their second flush of BRF cakes and they've noticed a very small gold colored patch on one cake. The little patch had little hair like structures with a little bulb like end. Their assuming it's a yeast or some contam.
They was wondering if doing a H2O2 dunk would have any beneft.
I was trying to search and read that H2O2 would only kill spores.
So at the least it might have kiled the spores and left hopefully a dying patch.
My foaf doesn't have bleach so they're trying to get as good as they can with what they have.
Would a 10% dunk for 30-1hour do anything? Maybe a %20 mix? Extend time length?
Would an over night dunk in this hurt the mycelium?

post a pic and then i'm sure someone will be able to give you an accurate prognosis of your situation.

The little bulbs are almost microscopic. The bulbs on the ends are a little bigger than a pin tip.
The cakes are 100% colonized and just finished their second flush. They have some blue bruising but otherwise are healthy and seem to be contam free.

No, but it may hurt any pins if it knocks them around too much. What you describe could be a contam, a pinset, or "mycellial piss;" hard to tell without pictures. I would isolate it and see what develops.

That's what I call it too; I'm very easily amused.
IMHO... Spend 50 cents on bleach or ask a neighbor/friend... Whatever.
I bet you have enough change in your couch to buy a gallon.
