I wouldn't for a few reasons
The water may get too hot and start making the paint peel off or discolor
plus soap and rinse aid will get on the decor ( not good for the tank water )
I would stick to plain water in the sink and if you use soap, just make sure to rinse really well or soak to get the residue off.

Hi!

Probably not a good idea. There's really no need. +1 on what jwebbe said, although I would skip the soap altogether and use a tiny bit of ammonia in the water (bleach, without additives).

If your decorations are stained the same solution would work and you can brush/scrub them clean with a toothbrush or other sort of brush that has not been used to clean anything else.

Hope this helps! Good luck.

Bleach isn't ammonia, it is a compound that turns to hypochlorite upon contact with water Unless there are different varieties of bleach I'm not aware of, of course. I agree with the above

I use Tupperware containers for general tank stuff, that have gone through the dishwasher many, many times. That said, I wouldn't really see the need to use the dishwasher for decorations.
