How to De-Fungi Pots and Plants: Bleach

How to sanitize pots/containers?

To disinfect pots, soak them in a solution containing one part household bleach to 9 parts water for a minimum of 10 minutes.

Mix 1 part bleach with 9 parts water. Immerse the pots in hydrogen peroxide (bleach) solution for 10 minutes. Soaking for 10 minutes should kill all bacteria and any fungal spores present on the pot. Then, rinse the containers. Chlorine is unstable and dissipates into the air quite readily
