Sour Pot

by 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?

Lots of baking soda and water, soak 24 hours.

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.
