You can always bake it at 250 for 20 minutes or so before use.

Matt. I have never worried about it. Peat is pretty resilient to mold and mites.

Actually I look at it as a plus. because that way its actually easier to moisten down. you will learn quickly that peat most is kinda hard to wet. but once it does it stay moist for a while.

I like to get a spare tub, go to the kitchen sink, turn it as hot as it will get and start spraying it with the hose thingy. once i feel there is enough water in i will start working it in with my hands.
