While doing regular cleaning, use a mild dish soap that is gentle on the surface of the planter. Also, use plain and warm water. Rinsing should be done immediately after cleaning it with dish soap. Using dish soap goes a long way to retaining the original look of the planter’s surface.

  •     Wipe spills and leaks immediately.
