Heh. I believe a HOT Sanitize Cycle with Bleach will get the pots clean but who's really going to do that....unless you bring it to the 24 hr laundrymats at 2 AM and hope no one sees you. Maybe be a good citizen and then do another empty wash on hot water before you leave.

Heh Barb. Yours sound like mine.
I've done the rinse.
I've also taken a plastic card and scraped the sides after a good days rain....

Even after a long hard winter, (I did clean them in late fall), when I moved the snow soaked pots, I smelled a tinge of wet algae.. On super hot days, I try to make it a *flush the salts of the pot days*.
Heh, as least I know I'm in company

Hiya Barb, I got poly white bags on ebay through HTG Supply, which also oddly has them direct from their own website at a considerably higher price. I bought the 50 pack of 10gal for like 50cents a bag. I see they are out of the 50pack size now, but they have 25packs at about 60cents each for 10gal.

Less evaporation was the biggest growing difference between them and the fabrics, a quart to half gallon less of the water soluble ferts daily on plants of comparable type and size. Root development seemed nearly comparable and they were sturdy enough that none ripped or split.
