Before storing your clay pots for the winter, give them a good scrubbing to remove all loose soil. Then soak them for about half an hour in a solution of water and vinegar (1 cup of vinegar to 3 cups of water) to remove the white residue. A thick residue may require scrubbing with straight vinegar. Finish by scrubbing the pots in hot, soapy water.
