cleaning a rain barrel

finnickyaboutgreenApril 18, 2012

Hi all,

I just bought a 300 gallon tote that I plan on using as a rain barrel. The tote had contained brown mulch dye and hence the dye color inside it. Need advise on how to clean this huge tote before I started using it as a rain barrel.

Thanks

Why clean it? It's a dye, therefore it's going to stick. Do the accepted triple rinse and that should suffice for any chemical residue concerns. If you have concerns for more than that, you probably shouldn;t have gotten the barrel. Hope that didn't sound snotty as it's not meant to be... just common sense... i hope.
