  1. 1

    Fill a bucket with clean, cool water.

  2. 2

    Dip a bristle brush in the water, and scrub the statue to remove dirt and residue that have built up over time.

  3. 3

    Pour water over the top of the statue to further remove dirt.

  4. 4

    Mix a solution of water and nonionic detergent. This is a special detergent that does not contain ions and has the ability to lift residues on stone. On marble statues only, you can use a mixture of water and ammonia. Brush with your bristle brush or a toothbrush. Rinse with water.
