What is the easiest way to clean fake plants, bleach soak, vinegar? Trying to scrub the little leaves seems to pull a bunch of leaves apart.

Thanks for any replies.

I tried cleaning plastic plants quite a few years ago and used a dilute bleach/water mixture. Unfortunately it must of been too strong as it lightened the color of the plants. Not helpful I know but maybe someone else has some suggestions.

Do you know what type of algae you have?

Was brown - now changing to green and almost gone from everything except the fake plants. I think I used bleach many, many years ago but could not remember.

Thank you for your help.

You might want to try some household hydrogen peroxide if you have any handy. Try dabbing on the plants, wait for 5 minutes and try to clean with a toothbrush.

There are also some commercial aquarium plastic plant and ornaments cleaners available but I haven't tried them and don't know what the ingredients in them are.

Terrible pic of the guys who want their plants back lol.
They are very healthy but the pick looks like spots and stuff, if a better pic they look great.
