I have a bunch of pots and containers I've used for gardening the last few years but have never cleaned out - I'm lazy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> I thought I should clean them this year but everything I read about cleaning them out properly says to use bleach. Is that really necessary? I don't want to use bleach. How about vinegar and water? (That's what I clean everything else with, lol.) I don't think any of my previous plants have had any nasty diseases or anything, but I haven't taken very good care of the pots so I'd like to 'start fresh' this year. So, how do you clean your pots?
