Sour Pot

Postby woozl » Mar 23rd, '13, 19:13

I've gone on vacation for two weeks only to return to find
I had not cleaned an unglazed tea pot. :roll:
Green fuzzy moldy science experiment gone awry. :shock:
Cleaned and boiling baths to no avail.
Reeks like nasty gym socks.
Any fix for this? Perhaps baking soda?

I'd try leaving a 1-4 bleach solution in the pot for a few days, then going with the baking soda. Denture cleaning tabs might be worth a shot too.

Try salicilic acid, it has antifungal properties, soak it is a solition, and after that soak it in clean water, and boil it in clean water for at least an hour.
