    Default Food grade bucket ?

    A friend can get me all the food grade buckets I want for FREE. The catch is they had pickles in them. Can I rinse them with Clorox so I can use them for HONEY?
    Thank You

    I'm with jrbbees.

    I had some of those buckets just for water and even 3 years later if they warmed up even a little you could still smell the pickles. I tried putting baking soda in one of the glass pickle jars and even that didn't work and I even flipped it over thinking the smell was in the lid. Usually the people in the bakery department at your nicer grocery stores will let you have their old frosting buckets if you clean them. That's what I use along with a honey gate.

    I know free is better, but are local Menards has them for 3.97each. Best price I have found on them.

    The question about the Menard's bucket is whether it's food grade or not. I'm betting not.

    I stay away from buckets that have had pickels in them BUT I have friends that use them all the time and after a few seasons of honey the smell is gone but the lids will still smell.
