    Default Answered: Air pot dilemma

    Ok so i was a lazy bastard on my last grow, i got ill again and needed a pic me up via hospital, my mental health was low.....


    Suffice to say things got neglected big time.


    I went looking for my 20 ltr air pots over the week end and could not find them, confused as fuck i know i have loads of them.


    Anyway the mystery is resolved, they were left down the side of the house (still full of coco and main stem ffs) under a sheet. They have been hugely weathered and soiled and contaminated with eggs n shit.


    Is there any way of cleaning them up to the point i am not in any danger of getting ill plants etc. I have bleach and some of that nutrient cleaner stuff iu could use to get the salts off and bleach to killlo and bugs etc. Is this a good idea or should i go spend 50-60 quid on new ones...


    Man i swear this happens too often.

    A good scrub with hot water and some washing up liquid should sort it smoby, followed by a rinse off with kettle water. Just make sure you strip them down so you can get in all the areas.

    Just make sure you clean them up first & the women will never know

    I only have a small table top dishwasher.... I can, if I take them apart & wrap them tighter, get them in but it doesn't get them clean properly... but a full size dishwasher works fine
