There are several ways to eliminate the fungus in your mate. The one we recommend consists in:
● Moisten the inside of the calabash with ethyl alcohol.
● Light it with a match. You must be very careful and cautious and —once turned on— leave it for a maximum of five to ten seconds. Thus, with the fire we will burn any bacteria that we have not removed with the washing.
● After doing this process, we can scrape the affected parts with a spoon.
● Fill it with water to remove the remains & let the mate rest for a few hours outdoors or in the sun.
