Pebble care and maintenance
To keep your pebbles in top condition, we recommend you undertake these maintenance practices:
Pebbles used indoors
Decorative pebbles have a relatively smooth surface that can either be wiped with a clean cloth or washed in a bowl of luke warm soapy water.
For more stubborn stains, pebbles can be scrubbed with warm soapy water, vinegar solution or a baking soda/water mix and a soft brush.
Pebbles used outdoors
Natural pebbles are extremely durable and resilient. They have a relatively smooth surface that is easily cleaned or wiped.
Loose pebbles can be wiped with a clean cloth. An area of pebbles can be cleaned with a pump action water spray or a fine spray from a low pressure hose. Any particularly affected areas can be scrubbed and cleaned with warm soapy water, vinegar solution or a baking soda/water mix and a soft or medium bristled brush.
Silicone spray can also be used to give your pebbles a quick spruice up and extend their life. Simply spray the silicone on to the pebble surface – prior to grouting – and allow enough time to dry. Silicone will penetrate the pebbles and give them a shiny wet look. It is important to note that silicone is not a permanent solution and you will need to reapply it when the pebbles start to look dull. Please also refer to the manufacturers guidelines for the correct and safe application of silicone spray.
