  • It's mold. I would think that if you clean it well enough, it should be fine to keep.

  • It's mold. Just give it a really good cleaning.

  • Mold, wash it well with very warm water and maybe a little bleach (cap full per gallon of water) and you will be okay. :)

  • Probably both. That's usually what happens when something is left too long and with the warmer weather and all.Nothing some really good soap and water can cure and clean. If you have a special pot cleaner, it wouldn't hurt to use it on it.

  • i can't use bleach because it gives me breathing problems. So just give it a good wash?

  • Solumel and water. It's a nontoxic cleaner that you can use, even people with asthma can use it.

  • Mold! just use HOT water and dish soap to clean.

  • I agree with just hot water and soap. If you are worried about sanitizing it after it is washed fill with water and boil. That will sanitize it without chemicals.
