IOTA Australia provides a great range of high-quality of pots and planters that designers and landscapers love to work with. Our pots and planters require less maintenance since they are made of high-quality materials that are durable and weatherproof. But in the long run, the colour and finish of the planters may slowly fade and become worn out.
This happens even on high-quality planters so to avoid such occurrences, here are some ideas on how you can sustain the elegant and stylish looks of your containers.
Best Time for Cleaning your Gardening Pots and Planters
The best time to clean gardening pots and planters is during springtime before planting or during the last days of fall as you start removing dead and dying plants.
How to Clean Your Containers:
Remove dirt clinging to the sides of the planters. If you are using the planters indoors, you can use a damp cloth to wipe the exterior of the planter. For outdoor use, you can use a warm soapy solution and a soft sponge. After doing this, rinse them thoroughly with clean water until the soap is gone.
You can use a high-quality wax for a glossy finish. This will also add protection from dirt and it can prolong the lifespan of your planters.
Same with the fiberglass planters, remove the dirt inside and outside of the planter. For GRC products, you can clean it using a damp cloth and gentle/mild soap-based cleaning products. Don’t use any abrasive cleaning products.
For this kind of planter, you can use a soap solution and a brush with stiff bristles to remove dirt. Also, make sure to rinse it thoroughly afterwards.
Cleaning your pots and planters is one of the jobs that need to be done regularly if you want your planters to last for a lifetime. This can help preserve the elegant and stylish finish of your high-quality planters.
