One accident that happened at the beginning of my tea addiction always keeps me cleaning teapots at least in evening. I will have nightmares otherwise
I forgot about used leaves in big kyusu when it was quite hot for many days... you can imagine the rest
I am trying not to imagine!!!!!!!
I am mold phobic, gives me the willies ... so I avoid this scenerio at all cost.

I've only got one pot I use for Japanese green, if I can't be bothered cleaning it out to start again I'll just keep brewing with boiling water, sweet water go! If I'm leaving it overnight I usually fill it with boiling water. If I don't get around to cleaning it out the next day, I'll drain it and refill with boiling water until I do feel the urge to clean it.

I just rushed over to the tea cabinet to make sure that I hadn't left Puerh in my yixing pots!
I have 4 gaiwans so there's always a clean one on hand to steep some Chinese greens, so I never have to skip tea because I don't want to clean my teaware. The same is true of food, but only because I live in a city with lots of delivery options.
