    Nick, good question. As you have noticed the zeo-carbon is much finer than many others, therefore, the 300 mic.would be useful. Bob

              Nick, I went to the hobby shop and bought a yard of wedding vail (smallish holes) for $0.99. then I just get a couple layers, add the carbon and wrap it around the carbon a few times. This does a pretty good job of keeping it in. I might loose a few pieces but no big deal.

                  Keigo, good idea, now if I can get the Mrs. to give up the fish-net panty hose, maybe that would allow the 1 1/2ltrs of carbon--but wait, I like those those on her,LOL Bob

                    Please make sure to wash the w-socks in hot water before usage. Also white coloured would be saver, because they could not leach colour. Just a security procedure because we do not know what they could leach.

                    I use them since many years without any problems, works fine.

                          I would never fight with her because of socks

                          If I need new socks for carbon, you can notice a man with a red head running out of a lingerie shop. If you meet him, ask him if his name is Alexander
