My tent is now empty and my smallish harvest is in jars curing. What should I use to clean the inside of my tent before I start my next grow? I want to minimize any potential issues down the line.

A lot of growers wipe down The tent with a bleach solution to sterilize the area. Of course bleach isn’t friendly to metal tho. I’ve started using a vinegar solution instead of bleach and so far I think it’s as good as the bleach for killing bacteria and such with less caustic effects as long as it’s strong enough. I know a couple growers that use isopropyl alcohol to wipe down with. The danger there is fire of course. For me it depends on how the last run went. If there was mold or bugs or whatever, the cleanup is more intense. If everything was good it’s a quick wipe and a hover and a reset. So far this hasn’t caused me any problems.

Yo Bassman! I usually vacuum and spray/wipe the tent down with a peroxide/water mix!

I've heard if you use bleach, specially in your pots (plastic) you should make sure to rinse that shit off really well or let it air for a couple of days before using tent/pot again.

Me? Vinegar all the way. My wife makes a mix of vinegar/water/lemon and we clean all the house with that. Not need to buy any chemical shit

Lots of great answers, thanks to everyone for sharing their procedures. I suppose the worst I could do is nothing at all because anything is better than nothing. Smile
