    Hi all need some quick advice. Got myself 1000L flow bins. Just need to know what I can throw in then to clean them out as they had balsamic vinager in and some of it has dried on the sides and the bottom. Have got a hard broom and water but not all comming of. Would it be safe to put pool acid in them and once cleen rinse them out a couple of times with water?

    Seeing as balsamic vinegar is an acid and you want to get rid of it try bicarb as you want to break it down.
