Question: 1184-4314
What is a good way to clean up my scummy pots before taking them indoors for the winter? Joanne, Plainfield, CT

Mort's Answer:
Bleach works well. Be careful not to get it on clothing unless you like white spots. Wear plastic gloves. Let the pots sun dry for a few days before bringing them in and before using them again. Bleaches sterilize and are effective killers of good and bad bacteria, fungi and algae.
