Q

How do I clean plastic transplant containers?

I have seeds starting in little terrariums right now. Soon I will have to transplant them to larger containers before beginning to harden them off. For the plastic transplant containers that I intend to reuse from last year, what would you recommend I use to clean them before reuse?

Answer

I, too, reuse my plastic containers, but I do wash them carefully first with a good scrub brush and plain water.  In some instances if I am starting seeds, I wash the container with a cleaner that contains Clorox so that the container is sterile, to some extent at least.  I worry about dampening off diseases.  Rinse the containers well so that none of the cleaning solution remains.
