Default Re: best way to clean plastic barrel

I would start by rinsing it out a few times first, then get some dish washing soap, and start scrubbing it (wear gloves) down good. I would then do the same with baking soda (to neutralize), then do the soap & scrub once more. Let it air dry for a few day's, should be good to go after that.
