Cleaning your artificial plant and flowers is a lot simpler than you might think. Follow these instructions to ensure that they remain beautiful for longer.

  • Put some salt inside a plastic bag.
  • Put the artificial flowers or plants upside down inside the bag. Shake the bag. The salt will absorb all the dirt and dust that may have accumulated. Remove the plant from the bag and use a vacuum cleaner to remove all the remaining salt. Set the vacuum cleaner to the lowest setting, so as not to damage the plant.
  • Use a hair dryer on its lowest setting to remove all the remaining dust.

The tips mentioned are tried and tested, but there are lots of ways to clean your artificial flowers and plants. Feel free to consult the internet for other cleaning options that might work better for your specific needs.
