Kettle, taps, sink and surround - the kettle's getting a half hour soak, the taps have had a scrub with descaling gel and the rest get a wipe over with gel and then a good rinse.  We have very hard water in this area.

Flowers of Sulphur can be used to treat cuts or other damaged area to help prevent rot, but I think that most people nowadays just ensure that the tubers are stored in dry cool but frost free conditions.
