ingarden is very simple to clean because it is dishwasher safe. after your harvest, simply disassemble the device in three steps by removing the growing beds, the wick holder, and the tray holder. next, place everything, minus the frame, into the dishwasher. You can then easily re-assemble your ingarden by returning the pieces to their places within the frame.
Wicks: The wicks themselves are best rinsed by hand under tap water. Avoid detergents or other cleaning agents, as these can damage the material. Change the wicks every 3-5 harvest cycles.
