What brush do you use to clean old containers?

ginjjMarch 12, 2014

I want to re-use a 18" x 3" (aprox) propagation chamber I bought at Walmart. I need to "brush" the bottom and sides a bit to remove the dirt. I know not to use anything with hard bristles as it could put a hole in it. Maybe a small hairbrush?

Have you found something perfect?

Hey Ginny,

You can use anything, besides a wire brush or anything that abrasive that will scratch the plastic. For example, any dish brush or scubby would work great.

You will also need to disinfect or wash the container with a mixture of one part bleach to ten parts water, and rise thoroughly.
