    Rinse the statue with a clean rag or shop towel by dipping the rag in the bucket and wiping the all-purpose cleaner off with the rag. Continue until the statue is free of any cleaner.

    Let the resin statue air dry before moving or placing it in another environment.

  7. 7

    Repeat steps for other resin outdoor statues you need to clean.

Tips and warnings

  • Bring your resin outdoor statues in to a garage or other enclosed space during the winter months if your area gets temperatures below freezing. Cold weather can cause the statues to crack unless they have some fibreglass in their composition. If you have any paperwork on your statues, check to see what the statues were manufactured out of to determine if fibreglass is present.
