Do your pots have spots? Here's a a tip that might help remove them. Mix a solution of 1 tablespoon vinegar per gallon of water. Brush off all soil and debris from pots. Soak the pots in the vinegar and water solution overnight. Then use a wire bristle brush to scrub away mineral deposits from pots. This process may need to be repeated a few times to completely remove spots.
You can disinfect your pots by soaking them in a solution of 9 parts water to 1 part chlorine bleach for at least 10 minutes.
Winter is the perfect time to do a little pot maintenance! When Spring arrives, your pots will be clean and ready to plant
