Cleaning buckets without tainting honey
Hello BeeSourcers, another Africa beekeeping question. For our beekeeping project in South Sudan, it isn't always easy to get clean water. We'll be collecting the honey in 5 gallon buckets, even using the drilled/filtered buckets as honey strainers, so cleaning the bucket/strainer and reusing the buckets is important.
I know we can use iodine tablets or MP-1 tablets to purify the water, but I'm worried about affecting the flavor of the honey. I know honey is supposed to be bacteria resistant because of the pH level and water content, but I don't want to mess around here.
