STEP 1 | SET A SCHEDULE FOR CLEANING
We recommend that you dust your faux flowers weekly or biweekly to keep dirt from building up. The frequency of cleaning varies based on your location and weather conditions.
STEP 2 | USE A SOFT, DRY CLOTH OR FABRIC DUSTER
The best way to clean and freshen up artificial flowers is by gently wiping them with a microfiber cloth. You may also use a fabric duster as an alternative.
STEP 3 | USE A SOFT-BRISTLE PAINTBRUSH FOR TOPIARIES
To avoid spreading dust inside your home, clean topiaries outdoors. Start brushing surfaces from the top to remove any dirt. If your plants are pre-lit, take care not to tug on or remove the light strings.
STEP 4 | AVOID WATER OR CHEMICALS
Do not wash your flowers or apply chemicals such as silk flower cleaning sprays or artificial plant cleaners. Using these may damage your faux flowers or dissolve binding agents that hold the components together.
STEP 5 | CLEAN THE WATER ILLUSION
Some flower arrangements come with an acrylic water illusion. Use a microfiber cloth to clean the flowers and stems first, then wipe the acrylic surface. Wrap the microfiber cloth around a narrow rod, like a pencil or chopstick, to reach small spots.
