Hi, I'm Rachel Yatuzis, and I'm going to show you how to clean a plastic pool. Hopefully, you've waited till' before January unlike me, and you're able to do it in the warm weather. If for some reason you need the pool for somethin, maybe somebody's havin' a beach party in January. It's kind of ironic and they want to have the pool in their living room for a part of the, you know, the whole look and the whole theme of the party. You may need to wash yours out and let em' borrow it, so use any type of all-purpose cleaner with water. This can be dish soap and water. It can be you know; I I don't say, I say not to use bleach and water because there may be kids gettin' in there and I don't, I don't like the idea of bleach around kids so... Vinegar and water is wonderful. It's earth friendly. It's not going to harm your kids. It's totally non-toxic, and usually when you dump the bubbles out of the pool like this it's going to go right into your yard. So, vinegar and water's what I'd say to use, and just wash it like it's a gigantic dish, like it's a gigantic plate, you know. Grab a scrub brush; dump your water in there a little bit at a time and scrub it. It's not fun. It's not supposed to be fun, but it's got to be done. Usually, these things cost about ten bucks at the store so if you've had it for a long time, and it's becoming a little too much effort to clean it just go buy a new one. I'm Rachel Yatuzis, and that is how you clean a plastic swimming pool.
