Sterilizing teak baskets and cork mounts?
Default Sterilizing teak baskets and cork mounts?

Howdy all,

Sterilizing clay pots is relatively easy: scrub, soak in bleach solution followed by plain water, bake at 350F or so for an hour. Right?

What about teak baskets and cork mounts? I occasionally lose (or get tired of and toss) orchids on teak and cork. There are often many years of perfectly good use left in these baskets/mounts. there a good way to sterilize them? Will bleach and baking work for these, too, or is there another way. Perhaps just baking them once they're very dry? I've built up a fair supply of these over the years and don't want toss them.

Thanks for your help! Steve H.
