How to Clean Your AeroGarden
Ok, now that that’s done, one of the most important parts in owning an AeroGarden is learning how to properly care for it and clean it. Everything comes with a certain level of maintenance and an AeroGarden is no exception.
Since these are living plants that you’re caring for and growing, pathogens and bacteria naturally collect on the inside of the AeroGarden bowl and surface areas. This is nothing to be concerned about, but you do need to clean the surfaces to your AeroGarden regularly in order to prevent harmful bacteria from overtaking your plants.
What You Will Need:
You should fully clean your AeroGarden in between plantings, but if you do have existing seedlings or plants, be sure to clean around the exposed roots or plant areas gingerly and minimally. Using a damp paper towel can work on these more delicate areas. Use the white vinegar and warm water solution.
1. Bleach or White Vinegar
2. A large bowl
3. Soft Towels
4. Paper Towels
Step 1: Disassemble
Step 2: Bleach or Vinegar Bath
Step 3: Sanitizing the Bowl
Step 4: Wipe Down
Step 5: Removing Parts from Bleach or Vinegar Bath
Step 6: Reassemble
NOTE: Always be wary of water around electrical outlets and parts. Never plug in or start your machine around open water and make sure any spills are wiped up before starting or move the machine entirely away from any water on the counter surfaces.
