I'm seeing alot of yuppies in Annapolis with rain water barrels connected to their downspouts these days. I figured this would be a good platform for a garden irrigation system. In asking around and talking to folks about where they've gotten these barrels, I learned that there is an (eco-nazi) 'foundation' selling them and getting involved with the customer to help set the rainwater collection system up. They want $80 per barrel and then they want to be in your business. Selling you a bunch of stuff and registering you in their nice little database. Of course it's all to save the bay (bull shit). I called the head guy and it only took about 3 minutes to learn what he is all about. He's one of the ''the great 3 eyed lizard has more rights than you do'' types.
ANYWAY, he tells me that the barrels are commercially restored.
My question is what would be the best/fastest way to clean a barrel that had a methol alcohol based cleanser in it?
