Mold in plastic
« on: July 07, 2016, 12:03:12 AM »
Left a plastic carboy soaking in oxiclean for... Well, too long. Is it toast, or can it be saved?

I would do a soak with a bleach and vinegar mix. Similar to sanitizing after using it for a sour. 2tbsp vinegar, fill with water, add 2tbsp bleach, stir. It only needs 30 seconds contact time, then rinse very well.

Be careful of mixing vinegar and bleach as it will give off chlorine gas. Just use pink chlorine powder or ecolox (e-friendly option) both are cleaners and sanitizers.
