Sanitizing float trays in a hydroponic green house

Asked July 13, 2015, 10:06 PM EDT

Hello! I was told to contact this extension office in hopes that someone would be able to help me. I grow and sell microgreens on a very small scale. I use styrofoam float trays. I am unsure of what the best way to sanitize them while following the organic guidelines would be. Do you have any suggestions? Are there any resources you could pass along? Thank you so much for your time! Jess
