[Sticky] Clean your gear! Or else!
Clean your gear!
I'm sure this is a no-brainer for most people, but I thought I'd toss up a refresher for everyone and remind you to make sure you clean your gear between grows! Fungus spores, insect eggs, and bacteria/viruses are a hell of a lot better at surviving than we are, so it's important to nuke them into oblivion before re-using your stuff. No sense infecting your new crop with whatever may have afflicted the last one. Prevention is always the best medicine, and this is a very good way to start.
Vacuum/scrub/wash your tent, pots, catch pans, instrumentation, fan and C-filter/pre-filter (especially the pre-filter) lights (carefully), etc... basically anything you used in the last grow. If you're growing inside, vacuum the shit out of everything. Twice. And if you're like me and had a pollen incident, take a few extra minutes (or hours) to make sure you've scrubbed everything down as thoroughly as possible... pollen is persistent.
I use a dilute water/bleach mix for most things, since bleach is hardcore AF and kills everything. Smells bad/corrosive though. I like the typical Lysol-type cleaners as well.
Another great post mate!! Made a sticky! Prevention is better than cure 😉 You're gonna have me guide written here than me soon enough lol, keep up the good work mate
Haha not likely. You are definitely the man in that department. Every little bit helps though ?
I also should mention that picture is taken outside because I don't really have a large enough washing area in my small house. Definitely best to clean inside though if you have the space, away from dust and debris.
Every little helps more than you realise mate! I really appreciate every guide you write, and I'm sure everyone else does too! Massive weight off my shoulders
it's going to be hard for Macky to take that Member of the Month title off you bro!
solid post, great advice
