December: Caring for Your Clay Pots

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.
