Biological cleaning

Teapot bio-cleanedA month ago I drunk the last tea from my old teapot. I neglected it in a corner of the kitchen, with some water and green tea leaves. I thought the cheap iron that it was made of was too old, and the teas didn’t taste good.

Today I thought of giving it a second opportunity. What a surprise!! The inside of the teapot was full of mould. It seems that some bacteria had grown with the help of the water and the leaves. But when I threw the leaves I discovered the bottom was totally clean. These bacteria had eaten all the dirt, so (as you can see in the photo) the iron at the bottom is now totally new.

Maybe I should recover these bacteria from the trash, and feed them. I’m sure they’ll help me with the dishes 😉
