Clean Decorations?

Wasn't really sure where to post this but, I was wondering what is the best way to clean some really old decorations on the inside?

Vinegar and water will clean it up well and it isn't harmful

Could try a new toothbrush or a new pipe cleaner stick, or if you could get a rag stuffed in it you might have some luck like that

So you're trying to cleanse the soul of a diver guarding a chest or a spongebob pineapple?? Either way.. say 3 hail Mary's and do a cartwheel. Soak them in hot water for 10 minutes, scrub them down and repeat. Vinegar may loosen deposits.

Dragons have many nooks and crannies.. many... They're magestical.. treat the Dragon with respect and clean it thoroughly, your fish will thank you 200x.

are you talking about the ceramic ones? I used to run them through the dish washer I first ran a quick rinse to get any left over detergent out
the hot water always made them come out clean just don't use detergent

I would not use dish washer even without detergent.
I know of a breeder that used to wash his egg trays in dishwasher till they all started going bad before hatching.
We all believe there was something still in tray as ceramic and many 'pottery' type decos do absorb [especially heated and dried] just about anything in the water....
A clean scrub brush dedicated to fish [like your buckets hopefully] is useful tool along with scrubbies and a toothbrush MO..
