I've been having a bad time fighting thrips and to be sure I don't leave it on my pots I want to disinfect them. I've been googeling a bit but I see all kinds of different ways for all the different pots like plastic, terracotta or glazed, but no overall way to disinfect all of these post. I've got quite a wide selection of different types of inner and outer pots and I'd like the disinfect them all in one go, is there a way to do this with one chemical or home made mixture?

Wash all empty pots thoroughly with soap and water, then dip in a solution of 1 to ten bleach to water solution. Let dry.
