Cleaning Ways For Your Garden Statues
Outdoor garden statues will need special care, as they are prone to all the barrages of the elements, including fungus, lichens, mold, and mildew. These are several ways to cleaning your garden statues. For plastic resin garden statues, mix 1 gallon water and 1 tablespoon liquid dish soap in a plastic bucket. Stir well to incorporate the dish soap. Dampen a kitchen sponge with the mixture and wipe down the statue, using pressure to remove difficult stains. Rinse off the soapy residue with a garden hose. Wipe down the plastic resin statue with a clean cloth to prevent water marks. For concrete garden statues, mix 1 gallon hot water and 2 ounces sodium carbonate, or washing soda, which is available in your grocery store’s laundry aisle. Stir well. Wet the statue with your garden hose before dipping a plastic scrub brush into the washing soda mixture. Scrub the statue with the washing soda mixture. Rinse away washing soda thoroughly with a garden hose to remove any residue.
For bronze garden statues, combine a nonionic cleaner, such as Ivory Snow Flakes, water and a little spot-free dishwasher rinse. Stir the ingredients before dampening a soft cloth with the mixture. Wipe down the bronze statue with the detergent mixture. Use a nonwire scrub brush to reach hard places. Allow the dishwashing detergent solution to remain on the statue for a few minutes to dissolve any deposits or dried bird droppings. Spray the statue with a garden hose to remove the soapy residue before drying the statue with a soft cloth. Leave the copper to dry for at least two days before applying a thin layer of commercial wax with a plastic scrub brush.
