Purifying Bacto-Agar: Suggestions?

To save money, I'd like to use bacto-agar (e.g. DIFCO) in place of noble
agar as part of
a solid growth medium for screeing seedling-lethal mutations in Arabidopsis.
I've heard of washing bacto-agar in cold TE or water for a few days in a
cold room. Apparently, the agar turns pure white after a few washes.
Does anyone else have experience with this?
Anyone know of a supplier of "PHYT-AGAR"
