need some input for a good method of clean hydro equipment
    #765851 - 01/16/15 12:24 AM (2 years, 10 months ago)

hey guys made the mistake of leaving the root ball in the hydro basket for a week or so after i chopped the plant and found it to be a little moldy and i pulled everything out.. i put the baskets in a simple green (commerical cleaning grade) and let is soak for a couple hours. now i was thinking about letting them soak for a couple hours in a water/bleach mix to make sure that nothing is growing.   

but what im wondering is would i have to do anything special after the water/bleach mix to get all the bleach off the baskets to make sure that the bleach wont affect any plants after when i start another around?

Vinegar, and other acids are required to break up that white crust. Soak in vinegar to soften, scrub, rinse.  It gets the majority of crusty residue off.
