Hello!

This sorta depends...did you face some sort of disease outbreak recently? Or do you want just a General way if cleaning them?

I put mine in a bleach dip after use in my quarantine tank. Leave them an hour or so, then rinse thoroughly under the tap. If silk plants, I bleach them. Rinse them then leave them just covered in a bucket of water with 2 caps of prime for half hour. I mostly have live plants, only use fake in my qt.

I usually just scrub them in plain water, but if they're really full of algae white vinegar in water works very well. Just be sure to rinse thoroughly.

When I had artificial plants, I just took them out of the tank on a PWC day and put them in a 5 gallon bucket with water from the water change amd just rubbed them with my fingers or a brush I got solely for the purpose of cleaning decorations. Then back to the tank.

I use my hands, a brush and some warm water to scrub it. If a fish is sick i boil some water and dip them in.
