Refill with nectar as often as needed. During a very hot and sunny summer period, you might need to do this more frequently due to evaporation. Mix additional nectar as described in the above point 3. and pour nectar into the hole in the sponge.
Hand wash the Oasis with warm water when needed. You can do this, for example, with every refill. The hand wash may be enhanced with a few drops of vinegar. Rinse thoroughly. The product is not dishwasher safe.
For best results, lightly dampen the internal feeding sponge with hot water on each new application of nectar to the reservoir. If the sponge is dirty, rinse it thoroughly with hot water or, if needed, replace it with a new sponge. Do not use any chemicals for cleaning, as they are not good for butterflies!OFF-SEASON PRESERVATION:

Other ready-nectars and self-made butterfly food should only be used at one’s own risk. We will not take any responsibility for damaged products, when using other than Belighftul Nectar.
Please note that butterflies might need some time to adjust to your new feeding set-up and it may take a while before butterflies find your Oasis. Also note that not every butterfly species visit human-made feeders. However, there are many of the common species which will do so, for example Admiral, European Peacock, Camberwell beauty.
You can use butterfly friendly flowers and plants in your outside spaces, in planters or in beds to improve the effect and developing a butterfly friendly environment.
