Subject: [Clayart] pickle buckets

I recently moved and am setting up my studio. I have been looking for 5 gallon buckets for glazes and a number of locals have kindly offered their empty buckets for free. I picked up 2 buckets from a restaurant today. The buckets had contained pickles. I am wondering if the vinegar / acetic acid that has soaked into the plastic will leach into my glazes and the acidic pH will affect the glazes. I am soaking them overnight in detergent, but I suspect that there will still be vinegar in the plastic. They definitely smell. Has anybody had experience with pickle buckets?
