Clay pots in a disinfecting solution
Tim Street-Porter

Step 2

Disinfect and store clay pots. First, combine equal parts white vinegar, rubbing alcohol, and water in a spray bottle. Apply the mixture to pots, and scrub with a wire brush to remove salt deposits (white rings).

Next, stack pots in a bucket or wheelbarrow, adding 1 cup bleach per gallon of water; soak overnight. Use the wire brush to scrub off remaining dirt. Let pots dry completely. Line the inside of each pot with burlap, and stack. (We snipped holes in the burlap and stored our on wooden dowels screwed to a board.)
